Sprint lands opportunity to offer LG V30+

This week LG took the wraps off their fall flagship device, the LG V30, which should put them into a better position to contend with other flagship level devices as compared to the LG G6 which launched with some dated hardware. While not touted as part of the release announcement, LG did put together a variant of the phone that will be known as the LG V30+ and it will be available in the U.S. through Sprint.

The news of Sprint getting the LG V30+ was revealed by Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure via a tweet he sent out yesterday. The only difference in the two V30 devices is that the V30+ version gets 128GB of onboard storage instead of the regular 64GB. Sprint has not revealed any pricing information to help customers decide whether they may find an upgrade worthwhile. We also do not know yet whether the V30+ will be available at the same time as the V30 or will follow it later – Sprints short video touting the device merely says it is “coming soon.”

None of the other U.S. carriers have announced anything regarding this variant of the new LG flagship device. We will have to wait to see whether the V30+ remains a Sprint exclusive.
