The pricing and release date of LG's V30 were finally revealed by several US carriers. The device, expected to be available on the market a week from now, was announced during IFA in Berlin on August 31. The news came soon after it was announced that LG had started shipping the LG V30 devices in its home country, South Korea a week ago.

It was initially thought that the device would be launched along with its main rival, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on September 15. LG was silent regarding the launch date of the device, which led many people to speculate about it.

Launch dates

AT&T officially announced that the device will be available in stores starting October 6, with preorders starting a day earlier.

AT&T is also offering the Google Daydream View VR headset and a Top VR Content Bundle for any device brought before November 13 as a special promotion. AT&T currently offers a monthly plan which costs $27 each month for a total of 30 months. This adds to up a total of $810 by the end of the contract.

Meanwhile, pre-orders for T-Mobile will start on October 5, and the device will be available in stores on October 13. T-Mobile offers an $80 down, and $30 per month, payment plan for the device, which adds up to a total of $800 by the end of the contract.

Verizon has also stated that the device will be available from October 5 onwards, but they have not yet released their pricing.

Sprint has also confirmed the launch of the device, but the release date and the price are yet to be announced with this carrier too.

The V30

According to GSMarena, the new V30 is packed with the latest SnapDragon 835 SoC chipset paired with 4 GB of ram and the new Adreno 540 GPU. The V30 features a dual camera setup - a normal camera and a wide-angle camera.

The V30 comes with new features for its camera, primarily the ability to shoot in "log" format and the ability to choose preset filters for videos. The device was praised for LG's focus on photos and videography.

The V30 is the first device to come with QuadDac on all its device models. Previous LG flagship devices only supported QuadDac for selected European models.

The device now supports a larger 3300 mAh non-removable battery and a new highly efficient, 6-inch P-OLED Display, with a screen to body ratio of 83.8 percent. The device is also IP68 certified, meaning the V30 can survive up to one meter under water for thirty minutes without any issues. The device comes in 64 GB and 128 GB version models, and also supports Micro SD cards.
