LG V30 launches with a hearty price, US release slated for October

LG just sent us a press release about the V30 global launch today, and it is starting with its home turf of South Korea, of course, but the phone will be gradually rolled out to North America, Europe and other markets in the coming weeks, tips LG. In fact, Korean media claims that the V30 will land in the US "next month," which is two weeks from now, so not much left to wait. 

Unfortunately, there are no pricing details for the Americas or Europe, but in Korea the LG V30 is landing with a tag equivalent to $840 for the 64 GB version, and $885 for the 128 GB V30 Plus model. There, the V30 will be available in four colors - Morokan Blue, Cloud Silver, Aurora Black, and the new Lavender Violet option that is coming in October.

As a reminder, amidst all the bezel-less controversies surrounding Apple's "notch" on the iPhone X, or the 2:1 form factor of phones like the Galaxy S8, the LG V30 actually manages to stuff a 6" HDR display (albeit also in the trendy Univisium aspect), into a body that is no bigger than that of a compact 5.5-incher, which is a sweet feat. 

It also sports dual cameras with zoom and depth of field tricks, excellent audio prowess, a comfortable rear-placed power key/finger scanner, and an exquisite glass chassis that is a pleasure to feel or simply look at. LG might have a winner on its hands with the V30 this time around, as, in the era of thousand-dollar phones, its relatively high price might very well go down unnoticed.
