You can now buy an unlocked LG V30+ in the US


Starting today, December 22, you can buy an unlocked LG V30+ in the US. The smartphone is officially offered by LG via retailer B&H, and obviously comes with US warranty (for 2 years, as long as you register the device with LG).



 



B&H says it can ship the unlocked LG V30+ on December 26 if you're placing an order today, so you could get this as a late Christmas gift. As previously reported, the handset costs $929.99, being noticeably more expensive than the unlocked LG V30 (available since early December for around $800). Of course, the higher price will get you extra features - 128 GB of storage space (instead of the 64 GB available on the regular V30), plus a pair of premium LG QuadPlay earphones.



 



If you're purchasing the unlocked LG V30+, you will be able to use it on most relevant US carriers, including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. The new smartphone currently runs Android 7 Nougat, but LG is getting ready to update it to Android 8 Oreo. So, any buyers here?

Still haven’t seen one yet. This is a real phone?

This jump in price is not justified, especially considering that the original phone has expandable storage via micro SD. if the original V30 is $799, then the V30+ even with the new headphones should not be more than $899, though $849 would be best if they hope to sell any of the "+" variants.

I'll wait 6 months for this phone to be $400 ;)

I got the v30. I wouldn't pay an extra $130 for 64gb of storage. Especially when I have an SD card in mine.

Hhahahahahah good job LG, just on time..... No one should buy phone at this point, in 2 months S9 will destroy the V30, heck even S8 destroys it for 300 less.
