LG together with AT&T is offering a 2-year Warranty promise for the V30 for no additional charge, similar to the 2-year warranty offered for the LG G6 earlier this year. The news was announced by AT&T along with a promotional video for the V30 on YouTube. The offer is limited to US customers only and is good within 90 days of purchase.

Additionally, it was reported by the Verge, who wrote, "The LG V30 now has a release date in the US...It’s coming to all four big carriers beginning early next month...Verizon is getting a jump on its competitors and launching the phone on October 5th."

The V30

The LG V30 was announced during IFA 2017 in Berlin, the device gained quick mass acclaim for its new industrial design and cameras.

The promotional video released by AT&T primarily boasts about the new dual camera setup of the V30. The primary camera is now 16 mp with an aperture of f1.6, the largest aperture for a mobile camera currently in the market. Meanwhile, the wide-angle camera has also been massively improved. The secondary camera is now a 13 mp shooter with an aperture of f1.9. The wide-angle camera has been improved to lose its fish eye effect, with the distortion reduced drastically. The V30 can also shoot videos in an uncompressed "log" format, which helps retain as much possible detail and dynamic range.

The video also mentions about the new 6-inch HDR supported OLED display. LG usually uses IPS LCD panels for their display.

Unlike many other devices, the V30 has an 83.3 percent screen-to-body ratio, with the display having an aspect ratio of 18:9.

Specification wise, the V30 is packed with the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 4GB of ram and an Adreno 540 GPU. The device is also IP68 rated, meaning its water and dust proof. The V30 carries a 3300 mAh battery with fast charging and wireless charging support.

The V30 comes in 64 GB and 128 GB variant models with Micro SD card support, the device is expected to be launched on 6th October by AT&T.

LG's issues with warranties

In recent years, LG faced massive backlash for not covering the "boot looping" issue under warranty for their devices. LG's 2015 flagship, the LG G4 faced this manufacturing defect, which angered the buyers who had to pay to fix this issue because it was not covered under normal terms of the warranty.

There is even a current ongoing class action lawsuit regarding this issue.

Unfortunately for LG, more flagship devices in later years also faced this issue. Although to a lesser degree, this hit LG's reputation as a trustworthy brand.

The new warranty with updated terms and conditions ensures most devices will be covered, even in cases of "Bootlooping." The new warranty offer will help rebuild brand trust after the boot looping issue.
