LG Confirms The V30 Will Feature Floating Bar And Facial Recognition
LG continues the trend of announcing new features of the upcoming V30 on the company’s blog posts. After revealing that the V30 will feature an OLED display, LG showed off new features including a Floating Bar, Facial and Voice Recognition along with various customisation options.
Earlier this month, LG announced that the V30 will sport a 6 inch OLED display, all but confirming that it is dropping the secondary ticker display which was found on the V10 and V20. The new smartphone will also feature LG’s UX 6.0+ which will offer a lot of personalisation options for a more intuitive user experience. The semi-transparent Floating Bar allows for quick access to frequently used functions and can be dragged completely off the display when not needed. The new Always On Display offers more customisations, it not only shows the clock, but can also be set to display Quick Tools, Music Player or a personal photograph as well.
The UX 6.0+ also features new security updates such as facial and voice recognition. LG has stated that the user can unlock the phone by just looking at it, without pressing the lock button. The voice recognition feature uses Qualcomm’s Aqstic voice UI technology that is always listening for a passphrase consisting of three to five syllables. Lastly, LG touches on the V30’s haptic feedback, which can be customised with various included vibration combinations that can be matched to the phone’s ringtone.
