The LG V30 has been available from US carriers since October, but its unlocked version only went up for pre-order in the country towards the end of that month. B&H Photo has the unlocked LG V30 available for purchase now, no longer a pre-order item, and it’ll cost you $819.99.
This means that it will work on all four major carriers in the US. That includes AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon. That’s great news for those that are looking to pick up this device and not be tied to one carrier or another.
And it means that there won’t be two models available (one for GSM and one for CDMA), which is also good for the customer. There is only one color, unfortunately, the black color is only on the LG V30+ which is still only at Sprint and T-Mobile.
The LG V30 includes a 18:9 aspect ratio display, so it’s a 6-inch display in the same body as the 5.7-inch LG V20 from last year. LG also decided to go OLED with the LG V30, so it’s a 6-inch OLED QHD+ display, which is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
There are still two rear cameras on the V30, with a 16-megapixel main sensor and a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens. There is also a 5-megapixel front-facing camera on the V30 here. All of this is powered by a 3300mAh battery and it does have IP68 for waterproof and dust resistance.
Interestingly, the unlocked V30 is $10 cheaper now that it’s available than it used to be during the pre-order period. It’s also been released four days earlier than previously announced.
B&H has a promo going until tomorrow that will see you receiving up to a $400 rebate when you purchase the phone together with another LG product, so if you want the cash make sure you act fast.
