LG is trying to compete with Samsung and Apple by launching a slightly cheaper flagship, but it looks like that won't be hard considering the high price both smartphone companies are expected to put on their top of the line devices.
Although there have been quite a few rumors regarding LG V30's price, it's still unclear how much the phone it will cost.
We now have information that suggests the South Korean company will sell the 64GB LG V30 on its home turf for around $840 outright.
In the meantime, Samsung sells the Galaxy Note 8 in South Korea for the equivalent of $965, nearly $100 higher than the most expensive LG V30 model. If customers who are willing to pay more than $800 for a smartphone will choose the cheaper LG V30 over the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, then LG may have a chance this time.
The difference between the two variants is limited to just built-in storage.
Pre-orders for the phones will begin tomorrow, 14th of September and end on 20th of September. It will officially go on sale on the 21st before rolling out to other regions. The smartphone sports a 6-inch QHD+ (1440x2880 pixels) OLED FullVision display with a resolution of 538ppi and HDR10 support.
The LG V30 has an IP68 rating, a 3300mAh battery and runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box. It has 4GB of RAM that is paired with a Snapdragon 835 SoC.
In terms of optics, the dual rear camera setup on the LG V30 comes with one 16-megapixel sensor with an impressive f/1.6 aperture, a 71-degree wide-angle lens, and one 13-megapixel sensor with a 120-degree wide-angle lens and an aperture of f/1.9. Up in front is a 5MP f/2.2 sensor.
