12 August 2017

Being slightly smaller than the Galaxy S8+ or upcoming Note 8 means it could be the flawless middle ground for most users.

LG V30 Camera phone has announced its release date on August 31 via a fun video featuring actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt's company, HITRECORD. So its features will be better than the LG V30.

It's just a matter of few weeks when LG will be unveiling its next flagship smartphone, but a new report hints that the LG V30 might not be the only variant to be officially launched at the event.

The information comes from Korean publication etnews, which reports that LG Electronics is planning to shake up its previous trends by introducing both versions of this phone at the same time. This will not only be a first of its kind for LG to replicate the successful strategy used by Samsung and Apple to launch two flagships with standard and plus size options, but it will also steal some limelight from Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

But LG isn't a pro at this game like Samsung.

LG's optimism is commendable, but it doesn't seem too confident with its plans for LG V30 Plus. As it usually is, the Plus model will be a higher-end phone. The report further suggests that the devices will differ in terms of inbuilt storage capacity. The exact difference was not specified, but one theory is that the LG V30 will feature wireless charging, while the LG V30 Plus will feature Hi-Fi audio playback.

If the rumours are to be believed, the LG V30 will most likely include the Snapdragon 835 processor and will come with IP68 certification for dust and water resistance and ESS Quad DAC support, as well as a headphone jack. While the LG V30 is pegged to have a price of $700, the LG V30 Plus will cost about $875. It is natural that bezels will find little room to spread in the LG V30 Plus, thanks to the Full Vision display as seen in LG G6.
