According to a report by ETNews, LG plans to announce a "Plus" variant of the V30 alongside the standard variant during the IFA 2017 event in August. Tech Radar reported that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30 Plus will go on sale on three local carriers on September 15, making it hard for customers to narrow down to a single device.
If the rumours are to be believed, the LG V30 will most likely include the Snapdragon 835 processor and will come with IP68 certification for dust and water resistance and ESS Quad DAC support, as well as a headphone jack. And the V30 Plus may be getting a few other features, too, that might not be making it to the V30 proper, including Hi-Fi audio and wireless charging. The Galaxy S8+, for comparison, is $849 United States dollars, so it wouldn't be surprising to see LG's competing model parked around that price point.
The report also suggests that the device may never be launched outside South Korea. This is going to be a tough one for LG as Samsung might also find a similar price range for its Galaxy Note 8. The size of the screen Plus version not reported, but we were in for something truly great, as the display at the normal LG V30 6-inch.
LG did the same with the LG G6, with the LG G6 Plus offering more storage and some improvements such as better audio quality, additional colors, and B&O headphones included in the box. " LG Electronics (LG) will incorporate an F1.6 aperture camera and glass lens in the dual camera of its upcoming V30 flagship smartphone, introducing industry-leading innovations that bring a new level of photographic innovation to the mobile industry", said the blog.
The LG V30 was previously leaked in promo videos that were uploaded in HitRecord, the collaborative website that was created by prominent LG partner Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Or, both the smartphones will feature the B&O audio driver, but differ in their speakers.
