With a variety of new smartphone announcements behind us, potential buyers are starting to place their orders for new devices. One potential device for these buyers is the LG V30 and the upgraded LG V30+, both of which were launched in conjunction with IFA 2017. However, when making their big reveal of the new devices LG did not share pricing. Now we know a little bit about what LG has planned as pricing for the phones has surfaced for the South Korean market.
According to LG, which started taking pre-orders today for the device for consumers in the South Korean market, the LG V30 is priced at 949,300 won ($837 USD) and the LG V30+ with the larger 128GB of onboard storage is selling for 998,800 won ($880 USD). LG is taking pre-orders for a week.
LG has not yet announced pricing for other markets, including the U.S. market. If pricing is comparable to the South Korean prices, the V30 and V30+ will be priced lower than both the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the Apple iPhone X. Those two devices seem to be the primary options for comparison for buyers looking for the latest and greatest in flagship devices. There is a possibility the U.S. price for the new LG phones could be better due to some economic factors involving different geographical markets with some sources watching to see whether LG can get their price point down to $750. Doing so could provide a bit of a psychological advantage when trying to woo customers.
