Rumors of the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 gave us sticker shock ($1,000-$1,100!), can LG challenge with a better price for the LG V30? ETNews thinks “yes” and it has more to share.
First, there will be two models – V30 and V30 Plus – which will cost $700 and $875 respectively. They will launch simultaneously on September 15 in South Korea and on September 31 in Germany.
“LG Electronics is showing strong confidence towards LG V30 series.” said a high-ranking official for a mobile network provider. “After introducing LG V30 Plus at Unpack event, LG Electronics is going to release it at the same time as LG V30 in South Korea.”
The Plus model will have more storage, 128GB vs. 64GB, better audio hardware and wireless charging. The other specs should be identical, including the RAM (6GB).
As a reminder: 6” OLED Full Vision display, Snapdragon 835, 16MP + 13MP dual camera (with f/1.6 aperture!), IP68 waterproofing and 3,200mAh battery.
A high-ranking exec from a Korean carrier has handled the phone and praised the flagship’s “outsanding design”. Reportedly, LG is feeling very confident and will challenge directly Samsung, which is set to release the Galaxy Note8 on the same day.
