LG V30 retail price might have just been revealed


At this year's IFA tech show, LG officially announced the latest member of its high-end V series. The Korean company revealed many of the specs and features of its new V30 smartphone, yet it stopped short of providing concrete info about its pricing and availability. Nevertheless, a couple of clues about the MSRP did emerge online. 

Those of you who read about LG's V30 Twitter sweepstake might have noticed that the terms and conditions of the campaign outline an "approximate retail value" of $749 for the new phablet. It is likely that sales and state taxes have not been included in this approximate value, so we suspect that the final price should be around $800 in the North American country. 

Okay, but what about customers in Europe? Well, LG will likely just change the currency sign and stick to the same numbers, but we must remember that the value-added tax is higher in most European countries. 

Thus, the V30 is likely to hover around the €850-€900 mark, which is a bit more than the cost of a good Android flagship from 2017. Similar price tags were put up by several retailers from the Old Continent - Romanian website Quickmobile has the V30 up for LEI 3,999.90 (~€870), Switzerland's digitec.ch will sell it for CHF 900, while Media Markt had listed the phablet for €900.



All things considered, we can safely assume that at launch, the V30 will be slightly cheaper than its main big-screen rival - the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

That website is Swiss, so their currency is Swiss franc. That price translates to arund 800 EUR.

I would say it will be between 800 and 850 EUR. In fact, not betwee, but one of these two prices. Hopefully the lower one :)

If the is $1000+ LG will fail again! The need to be less than $750 or people will buy a $650 S8+

With all the respect 900 euro is way too expensive, just wait a few weeks and the price will drop quickly.

Well, Samsung Galaxy s8+ can be found here in Spain for 650-675€ and falling. IMHO too late for this SoC with such a price. 836SD are two-three months away and SD845 less than 6 moths...should have been cheaper.
