LG V30 to be released in the US in late September

On August 31, LG will be announcing a brand new high-end smartphone, the V30. However, the handset will (unsurprisingly) not go on sale immediately. According to Android Authority, the LG V30 will be released in the US almost one month after its announcement, on September 28. Interested customers will be able to place pre-orders starting September 17 - presumably via all relevant carriers.

If you live in South Korea, LG's home country, it looks like you'll be able to buy the V30 starting September 15. Most likely, the new smartphone will be released in many other regions, including Europe, by the end of the month.

For now, there is no word on how much the LG V30 will cost, but somewhere between $600 and $700 (unlocked / off contract) is probably a good guess.

Unlike the LG V10 and V20 that came before it, the V30 reportedly doesn't have two displays, instead sporting an OLED screen of around 6 inches. Other expected features include a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM, an advanced dual camera on the back, and a 3200 mAh battery.

Are you looking forward to seeing exactly what the LG V30 has to offer?

None of Samsungs devices released in the US have unlockable bootloaders...

I have the v20 and the 2nd screen is a useless feature. you can hardly configure it to do anything. really a waste they didnt add firmwares to allow you to because it has potential. the V series should allow swap able batteries.if this one doesnt, ill get myself a 2nd v20 as spare phone when prices come down further. nothing is more useful then swapping batteries. carrying a power brick or cable to charge is a waste of time money and space. I slip an extra battery in my wallet and I can go from 5% to 100% in 1 minute. I can run the screen at full brightness bt and wifi on as well. I dont have to skimp on using any feature.

LG won't keep swappable battery on V30 for sure, V20 will be the last flagship on this planet Earth to have that feature.

At least it's not almost 6 months later like they did with the V20.

I love the 2nd screen. I use it every day. I also know it's not for everyone. The best thing is you can turn it off the 2nd screen if you don't use it.

The Sd835 is very efficient. Ask a op5 owner and he'll tell you how many hours sot he gets

I wish they'd bump the battery capacity on such a high-end smartphone. Like 3,500mAH would be nice. Though I'd prefer 4,000mAh.

I was hoping for a bit bigger battery & 6GB of RAM & hell maybe even the Snapdragon 836 but it looks like once again LG will be out spec'd by Samsung. Seeing this with the Note 8 coming out. Hats off to Sammy for finally getting rid of that hideous home button on front. New design looks good except for the fingerprint reader placement. Bit of a stretch.

With that being said I still wanna jump ship from my V20 to the V30 despite being (under spec'd) Image Retention issues are plaguing me and TMO lets me switch every year anyway so why not? I would consider the Note 8 (as Samsung's design this year is very nice) however I still cannot get past the cartoony look of their TouchWiz UI blah

"however I still cannot get past the cartoony look of their TouchWiz UI blah" There are thermes and launchers, bruh... so that "cartoony UI" isn't much of an issue.

You are correct but I don't like using launchers or themes of any kind really. I like the fact that LG let's the user long press on an icon and customize it to whatever you want. I like LG's stock UI over all other OEMs. Personal preference. With all that being said I might be able to get past the cartoony look because Sammy really hit one out of the park this year with the new design. I'm just partial to LG. That Emperor Edition Note 8 sounds sick AF, too bad the US won't be getting it.

Bigger battery! 3200 mAh isn't big enough.

Which are "all relevant carriers"

Why, LG, why do they do this? A 3200 mAh battery? Once again, They almost nailed it. Almost. There is always something that trips them up.

No fragile camera lens LG. You always have one think that brings down your devices. No phone should crack while inside your pocket.

3200mAH (presumably) non-removable battery? No more IPS LCD display? No second screen? No IR blaster? Apparently someone at LG is hell-bent on murdering their flagship division...
