Australia won’t get the LG V30, but we will get the LG V30+ instead

Posted: 10 October 2017 11:44 am News


LG's larger premium smartphone will debut in Australia in November for $1199.

LG used its IFA press conference to formally launch the LG V30, the latest in the manufacturer's V series premium handsets. It's LG's first phone running on the Snapdragon 835 where the LG G6 launched at MWC 2017 used the older Snapdragon 821. However, at the launch event, there was scant mention of any Australian launch date.

That's because as it turns out, we won't officially see the LG V30 here locally at all, at least through official LG channels. Instead, we'll see the slightly pumped up LG V30+ model instead. Like the V30, the LG V30+ features a 6 inch 2880x1440 pixel display with a floating bar in place of the second screen bar that occupied the top of previous V series phones, as well as dual wide and standard angle cameras at the rear.

So how does the V30+ earn its plus designation? The big difference between the two handsets is the included storage. Where the LG V30 has 64GB onboard, the V30+ features 128GB of storage, although both phones can have their storage increased via microSD in any case. The LG V30+ will also come with a high-end pair of LG headphones in the box to differentiate it from the regular model.

LG Australia will make the LG V30+ available in Australia from November 2017 at an outright price of $1199 through JB Hi-Fi. There's no sign of carrier deals for the new phone as yet, but we'll update if any are announced.
