LG V30 is official, a Galaxy Note 8 alternative that appeared in a variety of rumors ahead of its IFA reveal. It’s also a beautiful phone that seems to correct everything that’s wrong with the LG G6. And a phone nobody will care about, no matter how great it is right now.
These flagship-class features of the LG V30 include Bang & Olufsen audio, voice recognition, MIL-STD 810G rating for durability, and IP68 dust and water resistance certification. On top of these is the dual rear camera setup with f/1.6 aperture, a first for the smartphone industry. Along with this model, the company also also launched the LG V30+ handset with more storage
The LG V30 has its work cut out for it. After its successor, the LG V20, came onto the scene, the competition frankly picked apart everything unique it had going for it. The HTC U Ultra lifted the second screen for notifications, and just about every flagship phone now utilizes a dual-lens camera.
So how does LG’s experimental smartphone branch move forward? By focusing on the subtleties and producing its most bold, feature-packed device yet.
We’ve spent time with a pre-production LG V30 unit ahead of IFA 2017 and worked to scoop through each and every feature (there are many) to be found within LG’s latest flagship.
LG V30 price and release date
For the first time, LG’s V-series smartphone will be more broadly available across the globe. Having been limited to just the US, Australia and part of Asia, the V30 is making the jump to multiple regions, of which we’ll confirm once we hear from LG directly.
As for the price, LG hasn’t shared that information just yet. The LG V20 debuted for a rather costly $799 (AU$1,099), so the V30 is likely to follow suit. We’ll be updating this section with information we receive from carriers following today’s announcement.
