LG V30 US pre-orders will come with all-new Daydream VR headset, release could be in mid-October


The LG V30 is already on sale in Korea, but we still don't know when exactly it will hit the shelves in the US. However, there are certain clues which indicate that the manufacturer is preparing to unleash a barrage of incentives for consumers in the North American country. 

A video released by AT&T (was subsequently deleted) revealed that LG will be offering a two-year limited warranty for its high-end phablet, which is twice the usual amount. Now, reliable tipster Evan Blass has stumbled upon a promotion that is even more intriguing. 

It looks like early adopters of the V30 will also receive a Google Daydream View VR headset and content package for free. Judging by the big "NEW" and the stated MSRP in the poster, this won't be the original Daydream headset, but an entirely new model that is yet to be officially announced. 

The gadget looks identical to the first model, but the asterisk + fine print reveal that the "model and color" of the headset is subject to change. If you're wondering how the new Daydream View is gonna look, check out the picture below. 


The image emerged as part of the leaked information about the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets.

So, what does this tell us? Well, the new Daydream will most likely premiere alongside the two new Pixel smartphones on October 4th. Given this date and the pre-order deal, we could go out on a limb and say that the V30 will have its commercial launch in the US in mid or late October. In any case, we're bound to find out soon, as LG will most likely make an announcement in the next week or two.

It seems LG is going to make a home run with the LG V30.

Is it just me that all of my Phones lag on this site, especially the keyboard? The only exception is my wife's iPhone 7 plus. Lol It's hard to come on this site because of it.

Not really, Mate 10 is coming, dual Leica f1.6 + 4.000mha + lower price and possibly released early! Really want a V30 but this delay is killing LG. Only if the V30 price is $700-750 will be a good deal

Mate 10 and low price doesn't mix. It will be priced premium.

Being a huge fan of the LG G6 after getting one from my mom, the V30 seems perfect for me. My only complaint about the G6 is it's size and the V30 fixes that for me. Can't wait for this to launch in the states.

I really love my V20 but the V30 is too good to pass up. And with these incentives and two year warranty it's definitely a hit.

I was excited about the phone but ........ They're taking to long with price & release date info. If they wanna compete with Apple & Samsung, they need to stop messing around & get this phone to the public IMO

I still want to see want google has to offer but my current phone is a V10 and this phone hits most of the marks. I think if someone offers a battery case for it(Mophie, Incipio) that would alleviate my battery concerns. Also I don't care about VR there are better bundle options. Watch? extra wireless charging pads?

Can't wait for the US release. Been waiting for a large leap from LG and they didn't disappoint with the V30. I don't really care about gimmicky headsets like these, but I'm sure someone else does and that's great. I would prefer a large/speedy mico SD card.

So what about the price??? The ads at this site are getting downright obnoxious. That Seal Team ad would not let me click out.

21. fyah_king unregistered

$749 is my guess.

I'm 50-50 in replacing my S8+ with a V30. Should I? Hmmm...
