Unlocked LG V30 goes on pre-order in the US, but it won't arrive until December

After the LG G6 fiasco, the new LG V30 is definitely a nice surprise for Android fans. The smartphone is available for purchase in the United States for quite some time now, but the unlocked model hasn't been introduced yet.

Currently, LG's flagship can be bought from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon for various prices. But if you favor unlocked handsets over locked ones, you'll be happy to know the LG V30 (unlocked variant) is now available for pre-order at B&H.

In order to get one, you'll have to come up with $830 upfront. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait quite a long time for the smartphone to arrive, as B&H claims the unlocked LG V30 won't ship until December 5. Also, the phone is only available in Cloud Silver color.

Keep in mind that the unlocked LG V30 will work on all GSM and CDMA carriers in the United States, which makes it an even better deal if you're patient enough. There may be other retailers that will start offering the unlocked LG V30, but let's hope they'll ship it earlier than B&H.

It doesn't suck at all. It sounds like you don't own the device and are just speaking out of your butt hole

It's sad. I like their phones and I want them to do well but they just shoot themselves in the foot repeatedly.

In the wake of the exploding Note 7, is "last year's SOC" really worthy of the term "fiasco"? It's still a good phone, it just came up short against the Q2 competition.

No wonder LG Mobile can't make any money...

They're really testing everyone's patience....as usual. Mate 10 has already reached stores this part of the world. If it's not ready for release, don't launch it early. Seems they just don't learn.

Dear PhoneArena, Please elaborate on the term LG G6 fiasco? I really cant recall any sort of flaws that phone had. Still one of the best phone you could buy specially for the price. Correct me if i am wrong.

G6 is a good device. Users are happy. You cant call fiasco to a cheap device I think

I think LG have made a huge blunder with their best weapon to date - the V30. It was announced what seems to be ages ago, yet it has not been made available in many (most) markets globally. There is a consensus and a huge interest in the phone as being a great phone. However, between announcement and availability, the Note 8, Pixels and the Mate 10s popped up and started building a market share. I, for one, was eagerly waiting for the V30 in the UAE, but ended up buying a Note 8. There is still no news as to when the V30 will be available. Sorry LG, but you have "ducked" up royally. ANd to think you could have sold millions.

Here's my positive spin on this delayed sell. LG might want to empty their first lot of V30 in US the the improved second and next lot can be sold anywhere with no concern. But these company won't think like this for sure.
