LG is all set to unbox its next generation V30 smartphone in Berlin on August 31. Following the official launch in Germany, the phone is expected to go on sale on September 28 in the U.S., as revealed through an internal document.
The report says post launch, the company is planning to start the sale of V30 starting September 28 in the United States, and pre-orders will begin on September 17. The report further adds that LG will begin selling the V30 flagship in South Korea starting September 15. Being its home country, it is understandable for LG to begin the sale in South Korea before it unveils globally.
This time, LG is launching the phone in Europe much earlier. The earlier smartphone was not launched in Europe, which left the LG customers upset. On a convincing note, may be the company plans to have a new beginning on the continent.
Rumors suggest that the LG smartphone will come with a 6-inch edge-to-edge OLED display, whereas a recent report reveals that LG V30 will come with Daydream support out-of-the-box and an OLED screen. It will come with super thin bezels and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU. On the specifications front, it will feature 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage like most 2017 flagships devices, and Android 7.0 Nougat and higher.
Like its previous smartphone series, the LG V30 is expected to come with dual rear cameras and fingerprint scanner. The rumor hasn’t thrown much light on the battery, but the LG V30 is expected to be one of the most anticipated devices for the company this year, and could even be the biggest challenge to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, set to unveil soon.
The previous handsets, G5 and G6, haven’t fetched much profits for the company, resulting in a quarterly loss. LG is still struggling to sell its devices in large numbers compared to Apple and Samsung.
The latest speculation is that the Galaxy Note 8 will be the top seller, but time has to confirm if LG can uncrown Samsung this year.
