LG V30+ logo leaks out - this should be a 128 GB version of the V30


LG already confirmed the name of its next-generation V series smartphone - V30 - while also revealing various details about its features. According to a recent rumor, though, LG is also planning the release of an upgraded V30 alongside the regular model. 

Not long ago, we heard that this upgraded V30 would be called V30 Plus. Now, thanks to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), we can actually take a look at the logo of the handset - above - and see that its name is styled LG V30+.

The LG V30+ is expected to look just like the regular V30, while offering largely similar features. But the + model might be a bit better, as it's supposed to come with 128 GB of internal memory (instead of 64 GB) and Hi-Fi audio.

As a reminder, LG also released a G6 and a G6+, with the latter having 128 GB of internal memory and a Hi-Fi DAC (digital to analog converter) for superior audio quality  - unlike the normal G6, which comes without a Hi-Fi DAC, and offers just 32 GB of storage space (at least in the US).

While the LG V30+ might be officially released only in South Korea (LG's home country), the handset could be offered by third-party vendors in the US - as is the case with the LG G6+. We'll bring more details about the LG V30 and V30+ as soon as new official information arrives.

Update: According to Evan Blass, the Hi-Fi DAC mentioned above might be included on the global version of the V30, so the difference between this and the V30+ could be related to storage capacity only.

If they start their region specific bulls**t again, well they are just shooting themselves in the foot!

I don't need headphone jack and Hi-Fi Audio, it's been probably 3 years since I have not inserted headphones into my phones. I need good screen to body ratio, great battery life and a good price. If LG can sell the regular V30 for a good price while skipping useless gimmicks, I'm all for it.

Good audio and a headphone jack don't matter, unless they do matter. You don't need them, but others do.

If it doesnt have hifi Dac, its a no for me. If it does have hifi dac and the camera is good (which it will be looking at the g6) this will be my next phone.

What's the battery size on the V30?

3000mah battery. LG hasn't been known for exceptional battery life since the G2. Average at best. This size phone should be 4000mah.

Wth? That's smaller than my G6. I might hold off buying this one.

The greymarket G6 I bought my daughter had the high quality DAC, wherever it came from. Nice phone. A dodgy greymarket V30 may suit me nicely. I don't need a Plus. Give me a better reason than the storage.

Seriously LG how the hell do you plan to compete with the big boys if your talking away features!

I hope we can hide the navigation bar. My G6 screen real estate is smaller than my LG G5 because of that.:(
