LG V30 supports Daydream VR, is the first phone to use T-Mobile’s 600MHz network


The LG V30 marks two important firsts for fun and usability – it’s the company’s first Daydream-compatible phone and it’s the first device to support T-Mobile’s new 600MHz band. (Note: the Galaxy Note8 was rumored to also support 600MHz, but it lacks the crucial Band 71).

The V30 is LG’s first OLED-packing phone in a while – P-OLED specifically, which LG tells us is a kind of AMOLED. And it’s HDR-enabled meaning it can better handle the advanced lighting of modern games. Anyway, it’s large, high-resolution display in a fairly compact body. And there’s Snapdragon 835’s Adreno 540 GPU to push VR graphics. By the way, the Google Daydream View headset is $75 on Amazon.

As for the new LTE band, T-Mobile got the drop on its US competition and the new 600MHz network is already in one location – Cheyenne, Wyoming – launched a week ago. The lower frequency will allow cell towers to cover more territory and reception in-doors is much better.
