T-Mobile unboxes the LG V30, films everything on another V30, no headphones in sight


As we learned earlier today, the LG V30 is officially coming to the US on October 5, with T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon all confirming the upcoming release of the handset. While both AT&T and Verizon are launching the V30 on October 5, T-Mobile will only take pre-orders on that day, aiming to release the smartphone on October 13. Even so, the un-carrier already revealed a video unboxing of its LG V30.

Everything that you can see in T-Mobile's unboxing video below - including some nice timelapse scenes - was shot in 4K on an LG V30, which seems to have excellent video recording capabilities. You'll probably notice that, sadly, the new handset does not come with headphones in the box, though we have to mention that this was/is also the case with the LG G6 or the LG V20 (at least in the US). On the bright side, you will be getting this new phone with 1 extra year of warranty for free.

The LG V30 will be T-Mobile's first phone to support its new 600 MHz LTE spectrum (band 71). Theoretically, this should mean improved coverage, in particular in rural areas, or inside buildings.

T-Mobile says it'll offer the V30 in only one color variant - the silver one that's featured in the unboxing video. The smartphone will cost $800 outright, or $80 down plus $30 per month for 24 months. Any takers?
