LG is launching an upgraded version of their 2017 flagship V30 (dubbed as V30+) in India today. You know that they didn’t bother bringing the regular version to the country. The launch event starts at 11:30 AM and you can watch it live on the official website.
The main difference between V30+ and the regular V30 is the onboard storage. LG has upped the ROM all the way to 128 GB for the new variant.
LG V30+ Getting Launched Today in India
LG has always paid heed to the audiophiles. LG V20, released last year comes with a dedicated DAC inside the phone, just like the successor, V30. However, they always seem a bit indifferent towards releasing the flagships on time in India.
When we compare the flagship launching schedule of all the other top manufacturers in India this year, we have to admit the fact that LG is quite late to the party. Given Snapdragon already unveiled 845, an 835-powered phone might look outdated.
The main feature you notice at the first glance about V30+ is its display. LG has used curved OLED panels on the device, which carries ridiculously smaller bezels around the display. With the curved display, the display of the device resembles that of Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The 6-inch 18:9 FullVision screen features 2880x 1440 pixels resolution.
Under the hood, it has got a Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 4 GB RAM and Adreno 540 GPU. You can even expand the 128 GB internal storage using an external SD card (up to 2 TB).
For the optics, LG V30+ carries a dual camera setup on the back. The primary camera features a 16 MP sensor with f/1.6 aperture whereas the secondary camera includes a 13 MP 120-degrees wide angle sensor with f/1.9 aperture. The front only has a 5 MP sensor of 90 degrees field of view, which might disappoint selfie buffs.
We expect the new flagships to run on the latest Android version. However, LG might not do it and they might ship V30+ with 7.1.1 Nougat. We can expect an upgrade to the Oreo, though.
The battery inside the smartphone measures 3300 mAh in capacity and it supports both fast and wireless charging.
As stated earlier, LG V30+ is only a higher storage variant of the regular V30. Nonetheless, they unveiled both the versions at IFA 2017. We expect them to follow the same international pricing for the device in India too. Meaning, you will have to spend around Rs. 50000 to grab a unit.
