Unlocked LG V30+ (128 GB, premium headphones) now available to pre-order in the US


One week after it started selling its unlocked V30 smartphone in the US, LG is now almost ready to launch an unlocked variant of the V30+, too.



 



While it's not as fancy as the V30 Signature Edition recently released in South Korea, the LG V30+ is still superior to the regular V30. That's because it offers double the storage space (128 GB vs. 64 GB), and comes with premium LG QuadPlay headphones in the box (while the normal V30 has no headphones at all).



 



If you're interested in getting the unlocked LG V30+, for now, the handset can be pre-ordered only via B&H, one of LG's official retail partners (though a proper release date isn't listed). The smartphone is priced at $929.99, so it's visibly more expensive than the unlocked V30, which costs $819.99 at B&H, or $799.99 at Best Buy.



 



Similar to the unlocked V30, the unlocked LG V30+ is compatible with all relevant US carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and so on. The new handset comes with 2-year warranty, but you'll have to register it with LG for this.

Dude you realize this variant of this phone came a few weeks after the V30 was released, there could be no way this would release with a SD845.

The 845 has not arrived in the sense of actually being in phones yet. So no, LG is not late to that party, but they are late getting their fall flagship available everywhere.

The V30+ was already released in the US though. This is an unlocked version.

True. I was referring to their release schedule in general, and particularly Europe.

I guess you’re a spec monkey who would consider this obsolete because it doesn’t have a chip that hasn’t been released in any phone yet?

These buggers are really late with their launches. Locked, unlocked, by now all versions should've been an option for their customers. And also, not just in a handful of countries.

Look for this at Best Buy. Didn’t have a V30. A rare phone indeed. Can’t compete with the others if you can’t find one.

In their defense, Best Buy probably isn't expecting to sell many V30s at full price. Unlocked phones are something of a rarity in the States in general, because carriers offer better incentives and sales. So a Best Buy probably sells more low- to mid-range unlocked devices. If you want one badly enough, you'll order it from their website.

I really wanted this phone. LG can't win for losing. They took way to long to release the unlocked version. I picked up an open box G6 for under $400. Maybe I'll upgrade to a G7

Too much price increase for what you get, 64Gb of storage and headphones I wouldn't use are not worth over $100. I miss when there was a $50 price hike for more storage, most devices it's $100 plus now.
