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.
