The LG V30+ (with 128 GB of storage space) is launching on Sprint

Sprint today became the first US carrier to confirm the upcoming release of the LG V30+, which is expected to be a slightly upgraded version of the V30 that LG announced hours ago at IFA 2017.

Sprint hasn't mentioned this, but the LG V30+ probably offers 128 GB of storage space, instead of the 64 GB found inside the regular V30. That aside, the two smartphones should be similar - though we're still waiting for a confirmation on this. Update: LG confirmed to us that the only difference between the two models is indeed related to storage space: 64 GB on the V30, and 128 GB on the V30+.

Other US carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, only revealed plans to release the regular V30, so Sprint could be the only one to sell the V30+ stateside.

For now, we don't know how much the LG V30+ will cost, and neither when it's going to be available to order. What we do know is that, according to Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, the phone is "coming soon," so it might be released in the coming weeks or months.

While we're waiting for more details on the V30+, you may want to check out our LG V30 hands-on and our LG V30 preview.

I'm really sick of these freakin exclusives, and sprint seems to be getting them all lately, like the Essential Phone, now the LG V30,and I believe there were others recently within the last year, but I can't recall. Then again, I'm not trying to pay anything more than $800 for the V30, if I even decide to get it.

The source doesn't mention anything about this device being an exclusive. Phone Arena is only speculating in the article.

V30 isn't a Sprint exclusive, they're just letting people know it'll be available on that network and Amazon has the unlocked Essential posted on their website for? 699 with pre orders starting on the 8th

This is for the V30+, not the regular V30. Did you even read the article?

The Essential is carrier unlocked. Sprint is just the only carrier that carries it in their store and website.

I understand they use these exclusive tactics to gravitate Consumers to their Service, Shady nonetheless though.

I hope the storage isn't the only thing that LG is upgrading to consider this a "plus" version.

Samsung started all this "plus" crap.

Yeah it's Samsung's fault other companies adopted the plus moniker....

The V30 should be called the LG Note 8. Damn, did they ever copy Samsungs Note line.

Pretty sure that the V30+ will not only have the 128gb of storage, but also bump the RAM to 6gb over the 4gb. But I am getting tired of carrier exclusive phones or models.

I wonder and hope the LG V30 will come with a dual sim option as well. If they do, it's gonna be my next phone
