Another beautiful aspect of the LG camera V20 is the hybrid auto focus system. In its previous devices LG deployed laser focus for quick auto focusing but with the hybrid concept, the camera will decide when it’s necessary to use laser and when it should use phase detect autofocus PDAF and will refine it with contract focus.
