Although the contest has ended now, the interesting thing to note is that the terms and conditions of the contest listed LG V30 with an approximate retail price of $749.99. It is expected that the price of the handset will circle around the $800 mark.

The LG V30 is in direct competition to Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy Note 8 phablet, which has been priced at a whopping $930 in the US.

As far as the smartphone’s European pricing is concerned, Romanian electronics retailer Quickmobile has already started taking pre-orders for the handset. The retailer has listed the LG V30 with a price tag of RON 3,990.90, which translates to approximately $1,036. While the handset’s exact shipping date still remains a mystery, the listing does confirm that the device will start shipping sometime in September.
