LG V30S ThinQ priced at $929 in the US, pre-orders open now

Back in February, LG announced an upgraded version of its V30 smartphone called V30S ThinQ. After being released in South Korea for almost $1,000, the LG 30S ThinQ is now available to pre-order in the US for about the same price.

Retailer B&H is asking $929.99 for an unlocked LG V30S ThinQ, offering it in two color variants: Glossy Moroccan Blue and Matte Moroccan Blue. This is the official US variant of the phone that'll work on most carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. For now, it's not clear exactly when the new handset will start shipping. 

The LG V30S ThinQ isn't too different from the V30, but it comes with more RAM (6 GB) and more storage space (128 GB). The new smartphone also has some AI (Artificial Intelligence) tricks up its sleeve, improving photos in certain conditions, or allowing users to search for products on Amazon and Pinterest just by snapping photos of them. However, these AI features can also be enabled on old V30 models via software updates

B&H is an authorized LG retailer that's also selling the unlocked V30+ (currently $819.99, down from $929.99) and the unlocked V30 ($669.99). So there are no risks in pre-ordering the LG V30S ThinQ through it - see the source links below - even if the phone's release date isn't known yet. 

Of course, before deciding if you want to buy a V30S ThinQ, you may want to wait for LG to announce the new G7 ThinQ, which will be officially unveiled on May 2.

As a loyal V30 owner (which I only paid $640 for back in October) I have to say ARE THEY CRAZY!!!. Who is going to pay $929 for last years top processor when you can already get an S9+ cheaper? I get that it has more ram and double the storage, but come on. Maybe if it had the 845, but no sale at this price. They need to knock about $50-$75 off IMHO.

Is LG drunk??? Why they make everything so awkward???? They dumb or sick??? They cannot make smartphone stuff well (displays, software, cameras), and when they do they can't market them well and price them competitively, and if they do that also they somehow fail to make them available on right time for the consumer to buy(they delay their market releases after announcing the phone). Consumers lose their interest for that product one way or another. OMG lolzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

This price might make sense if this phone was rocking the 845. I still wouldn't pay that much for it, but I'd understand it. But, with last year's processor when this year's is already out, this pricing is just ridiculous.

This is overpriced considering that this phone has a 2017 SoC, might as well wait for another year and it will cost $500.

Yeah, that phone too is overpriced and after exactly 2 years you won't receive any security patches.

This phone's pricing and release schedule captures nicely every reason why LG devices sell poorly year by year.

They want to released the phone only at "the right time" maybe their timing is different than customer timing...loo

Actually the V30S ThinQ is nothing but a rebranded V30 with slightly altered firmware, you can't call it anything else but V30.
