The upcoming LG V30 will go on sale in the United States and other key markets on September 28, according to a new report. The device is scheduled to get its official unveiling at IFA 2017 in Berlin at the end of August before making its debut in South Korea two weeks later.
LG has already launched its mainstream flagship for 2017, but demand for the G6 fell quickly following its launch. As a result, LG’s mobile division struggled last quarter and posted a loss of $ 117 million. The company will be hoping the new V30, its first handset powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor, can turn things around.
LG has confirmed it will be unveiled in Berlin on August 31, and according to a source for Android Authority, the device will go on sale in South Korea just two weeks later, on September 15. Pre-orders will then kick off in the U.S. on September 17 before the device goes on sale there on September 28. There’s no word on launch plans for Europe just yet.
“As for Europe, this document doesn’t show us when the handset will go on sale, but does state that the V30 will launch globally on September 28 suggesting European users won’t have to wait long to get their hands on it,” reads the report.
In addition to a Snapdragon 835 processor, the V30 is expected to be LG’s first phone with an OLED display. Recent rumors have promised up to 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, plus dual rear-facing cameras, a 3,300mAh battery with wireless charging, a dedicated DAC for high-quality audio, and lots more.
