Notwithstanding, still more than two weeks away from being released, LG has already announced details about the V30’s software. Ths includes the handset’s floating bar, new techniques to unlock the phone, and new features coming to the always-on display.
Recently, reports expressed that the company would be dropping the second ticker display found on the V10 and V20 for a floating bar. More leaks and renders have affirmed this hardware development and the above screenshots from LG detail the floating bar.
From LG’s public statement, we realize that the floating bar will consist of “frequently used functions.” The organization doesn’t state in the event that it will likewise consider application shortcuts, however, there is a button that can limit the bar to the side of the screen like the Edge Panel found on Samsung cell phones.
Additionally bringing LG’s UX 6.0+ on the V30 is an upgraded always-on-display. With the removal of the second screen, LG is adding the capacity to show Quick Tools, Music Player or an individual photo and the clock. While this doesn’t offer the same number of components as the outgoing ticker display, it allows for some functionality without awakening the whole display.
Likewise incorporated into the UX updates are new security features that enable users to open the V30 with facial and voice recognition technology. LG states that the handset will have the capacity to examine your face (like Android’s Trusted face smart lock) and open the phone without the need to first hit the power button. The same goes for voice recognition which utilizes Qualcomm’s Aqstic voice UI technology that is continually tuning in for a passphrase comprising of three to five syllables.
Finally, LG rapidly reaches the V30’s haptic feedback. While the organization just specifies that the vibration motor can be modified to coordinate different patterns, we definitely know that LG has worked with Immersion to take iPhone-esque haptic feedback to the V30.
We will discover more about the LG V30 on August 31 when the handset is formally released at IFA.
