The LG V30 might be the sleeper hit of 2017 Android flagships: it’s got a sleek glass and metal design, an immersive 6″ OLED display, a seemingly very capable dual camera and runs on top tier hardware, but what about its price and release date?
LG made the V30 official, but did not mention anything about a price, nor a release date.
Our guess: release date in October, price set at $830
We, of course, are curious to know, and that’s why we turned to LG’s history with the V20, the successor of the V30, and here is what we found out.
We looked at LG’s history with devices and one thing became clear: LG announces phones early, but releases them only after a few weeks. The LG V30 was announced on August 31st, 2017, so we expect it to actually go on sale in October 2017. LG V30 pre-orders will likely kick off in late September or in early October.
Last year, the LG V20 was announced on September 6th, but pre-orders on US carriers only started on October 7th, a full month after the unveiling, and retail sales kicked off on October 28th.
Update: The LG V30 price in Europe is set at €900.
The LG V30 full retail price will likely start at $830. This is around $100 more than the LG G6’s official price and it makes sense because the V30 is positioned above the G6. Also, last year, LG’s V20 launched at the same $830 initial price.
This will translate to a lease of around $32 a month over 24 months on Verizon and AT&T, while prices at T-Mobile and Sprint will likely be slightly lower.
