LG V30 Price Revealed, Much Less Than Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Highlights
  • LG V30 US price revealed via a contest
  • Europe price listed thanks to Romanian pre-order listing
  • LG V30 will launch in South Korea first on September 21

After many leaks, LG announced the V30 smartphone at IFA 2017 in Berlin last week. The smartphone will first go on sale in the company's home market South Korea on September 21, with global rollout expected in the coming weeks. At the time of launch, LG was mum about the pricing of the V30, however now, the LG V30 price in US and Europe may have been revealed.

In the US, LG has been running a contest where interested consumers stand a chance to win three LG V30 units, and in the terms and conditions of the contest, LG seems to have listed $749.99 (roughly Rs. 48,100) as the approximate retail price for each unit. As its coming from the horse's mouth directly, this price is a strong indication, if not the actual price of the LG V30 in the US. If this price is true, then the LG V30 is much cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which is priced at $930 (roughly Rs. 59,600) in the US.

In Europe, a Romanian retailer is already taking pre-orders of the LG V30, and has priced it at RON 3,990.90 (roughly Rs. 66,200). The listing doesn't mention the exact shipping date, but does confirm that it will happen sometime this month only. This price is much higher than what it has been listed in the US contest and we'd hope the former is the true price of the LG V30. Also, it's important to consider that the price will vary depending upon the region. Also, the pre-order price doesn't really reflect official prices, and LG is yet to make that official announcement.

The LG V30 includes Bang & Olufsen audio, voice recognition, MIL-STD 810G rating for durability, and IP68 dust and water resistance certification. On top of these is the dual rear camera setup with f/1.6 aperture, a first for the smartphone industry. Along with this model, the company also launched the LG V30+ handset with more storage.
