We have heard it a lot. People are waiting for the LG V30 to arrive here in Australia, even more so now that Google have priced the LG-made Pixel XL 2 out of the range of many consumers. We have good and bad news. At this stage the V30 will not be arriving Downunder but in even better news we will be seeing the V30+ instead.
The LG V30+ is virtually identical to the V30 except that it has some added goodies in the box and under the hood. The V30+ has 128GB of onboard storage compared with the 64GB in the V30 (both have microSD slots to expand the memory by up to 256GB as well) and the V30+ has a set of LG QuadPlay earbuds in the box whereas the V30 has no earbuds in the box.
This is great for Australian consumers as we are receiving the high end version of the V30. The earbuds promise to take advantage of the quad DAC inside the phone. This is the high-end audio that LG have been promising with the V30+ — it is B&O Play certified.
The LG V30+ is stacked with a lot of high end specs that allow it to match up very well with just about any flagship out there. It had a 6 inch “Full Vision” 18:9 2k display. It is IP68 certified, Dolby Vision compliant, Snapdragon 835, 4GB RAM, and Bluetooth 5.0. There is fast charging (QC 3.0) along with wireless charging and a 3300mAh battery. It will be running Android 7.1.2 under its contentious LG UX 6.0+ skin at launch.
One of the best things about the V30+ is the dual rear camera where with is a 16MP and a 13MP dual rear camera with one being widescreen allowing for great flexibility when capturing photos.
The LG V30+ will go on sale from the beginning of November for $1199 from JB Hi-Fi. At that price it is cheaper than all the other high end flagship so is definitely worth considering for your next purchase. Are you considering it?
