LG V30S ThinQ gets a pre-launch price cut

Earlier this week, we discovered that the LG V30S ThinQ was available for pre-order in the US via B&H, costing $929.99 unlocked. With the brand new LG G7 ThinQ coming soon, and the V30S ThinQ not being too different from last year's LG V30, that price may seem too high for what the phone is offering.

Fortunately, B&H now lists the V30S ThinQ at $729.99, thus taking $200 off its original price. The handset - already available in South Korea - still doesn't have a proper release date for the US, but it'll likely start shipping soon. In any case, this is the official US variant of the LG V30S, so you'll be able to use it on all relevant carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or US Cellular.

B&H is offering the LG V30S ThinQ in two color versions (Glossy Moroccan Blue and Matte Moroccan Blue), and both seem to be exclusive to the retailer. If you're interested, you can find both colors at the source link below.

That's the price of a mid-ranger; this is a one generation out flagship; it performs better than any mid-range phone. It'll drop once the V35 comes out, though, which may be pretty soon. Depends on what SoC the V35 ships with, of course. LG seems pretty confused these days.

Not to mention it has a snapdragon 835 which, according to a number of case studies, only differs from the SD 845 in that its devices don't have AI updates/support. We might have to wait a couple SoC generations before we start seeing those prices for brand new flagships.

Strange to buy V30S with SD835 for $730-$800, when you can get G7 with about the same screen size, but with SD845, for about the same price. LG, where is your logic?

V30S also has better battery life and +2GB RAM. But, unless one is an audiophile , it make little sense to buy V30S over S9+.

Neither are rip offs. G7 doesn't look like ipx and v30S doesn't look like s8 and I think LG's designs are better.

Not better for me, but certainly different. The logic that every phone with a notch is an iphone X copy is dumb.
