LG teases V30's software prowess: Floating Bar, Always On Display, and Face/Voice recognition

Himanshu, 14 August 2017

Just days after it revealed some hardware details for the upcoming V30 smartphone, LG has now shared some of the software-related information. In terms of UI, the device sports the South Korean company's UX 6.0+.

While we already know that the V30 doesn't feature a secondary 'ticker' display (that was there in the V10 and V20), LG says the display has evolved to become what it calls a Floating Bar.

The bar, which is semi-transparent, can be used to access frequently used functions. In case you don't need it, you can drag it off the display (the second image in the screenshot below).

Moving on to the Always On Display (AOD), the South Korean company says that aside from showing clock, the feature can also be set to display things like Quick Tools, Music Player, or even a personal photograph.

Now coming to security features, LG says the handset's Face Recognition functionality allows you to unlock the phone even when the display is off. And as for voice recognition, the feature uses a combination of the user’s voice and self-generated keywords to unlock the device.

And finally, "Haptic feedback on the LG V30 can be customized with various included vibration combinations that can be matched to the phone’s ringtone," the company says.

LG has also shared some software details related to the V30's camera. Head to the Source link below to access the complete press release.

I just received the Nougat update on my T-Mobile LG V10. It's running better than ever now! Battery life seems to have improved. About 30 more mins of screen on time.
