LG V30 tipped to launch along with a Plus variant; pricing leaked

LG V30 replaces second screen with floating bar

Well, that should certainly spice things up in the premium smartphone race, where the Galaxy Note 8 is soon going to be in the spotlight.

LG electronics is expected to release its next flagship smartphone, the V30 on 15 September in South Korea.

LG will finally unveil the LG V30 on August 31 during IFA 2017, but it will not be the only LG smartphone that will be announced at the event. However, this is the first time that LG will launch the base version of a smartphone and its Plus variant at the same time. So its features will be better than the LG V30.

Android O is expected to be be released on August 21
As noted by Google, the latest version is created to work on recent Nexus and Pixel devices running Android 7.1.1 and above. Android O release date for Google's Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones is said to have been delayed for some unknown reason.

It's a long shot for LG to go up against Samsung in a flagship fight, but Samsung's Galaxy Note ship was stumped when the Galaxy Note 7 rocked it. Samsung might be doing damage control, but LG doesn't seem to be wasting an opportunity here. As it usually is, the Plus model will be a higher-end phone. The V30 Plus will apparently only be launching in South Korea, with the report not indicating if an global launch is even being considered. Two years ago, the LG V10 was one of the most impressive cameraphones on the market, last year the V20 delivered the best sound among smartphones, and this year the V30 will presumably attempt to elevate both categories even further. As for the pricing, the former will be sold at around $700 (roughly Rs. 45,000), while the Plus variant will carry a price tag of $875 (approximately Rs. 56,000).

From what we know, the LG V30 Plus is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The report is not really clear on this part, saying that the two devices will have these differences in place, but not saying which device will be getting what. As per the leaked images of the LG V30, the phone sports a metallic body and will feature a dual camera on the back of the device with a fingerprint sensor.
