The LG V30 has finally launched in the United States. After shipping to customers last month in South Korea, LG has launched the successor to last year’s excellent V20 on two major US carriers: AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular will have the device October 13th.
As for availability, AT&T is selling the V30 for $27/month for 30 months in either Aurora Black or Cloud Silver. The phone can also be bought out for $809.99. If you purchase the handset before November 6, you’ll be eligible for a free Google Daydream View headset through LG. Currently, AT&T says the device should ship between October 10 and 12.
Regarding Verizon, Big Red has the device in Cloud Silver but for $35/month over 24 months. You can buy the device outright for $30 more than AT&T at $840. Luckily, for the extra cash you’ll spend, Verizon will throw in a $200 prepaid card. And of course, by purchasing before November 6, you’ll get a free Daydream View headset from LG. Expect the phone to ship around October 10 from Verizon as well.
If you’re an unlocked kind of guy or girl, LG should start selling the V30 without a SIM card at some point in the near future. As for the price, the device was previously estimated to be valued at $750 so expect LG to price the handset somewhere around that point.
The LG V30 features a 6-inch FullVision OLED display, Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, Android 7.1.2 Nougat, a Floating Bar instead of a second screen, a 3300mAh battery, a 16MP f/1.6 camera and 13MP wide-angle camera, USB-C, a hi-fi quad DAC, and an IP68 certified glass body.
