UPDATE: LG says that customers that buy the V30 will get a free Daydream View virtual reality headset.
ORIGINAL: One month after its official debut, T-Mobile has finally revealed when the LG V30 will arrive on its shelves.
The LG V30 will launch at T-Mobile on October 13th for $80 down and $30 per month for 24 months, which works work to a full retail price of $800. JUMP! On Demand pricing will be set at $0 down and $33 per month. T-Mo will begin taking pre-orders for the LG V30 at 5:00 am PT/8:00 am ET on October 5th.
One of the most notable features of the LG V30, at least when it comes to T-Mobile, is that it’s the first smartphone with support for T-Mo’s new 600MHz LTE coverage. 600MHz LTE is currently only live in Cheyenne, Wyo., and Scarborough, Maine, but T-Mobile has said that it plans to deploy 600MHz LTE in several other parts of the U.S. before the end of 2017.
Other features of the LG V30 are flagship-tier. It’s packing a 6-inch 2880×1440 OLED display with slim bezels and a dual rear camera setup that includes one standard 16-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization as well as a 13-megapixel wide angle camera. There’s also a fingerprint reader on the back of the V30 and a 5-megapixel wide angle camera on the front of it.
Inside the LG V30’s IP68 water and dust resistant body lives a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a microSD slot for adding more storage if you’d like. There’s also a Hi-Fi Quad DAC for improved audio and a 3,300mAh battery with wireless charging support.
On the software side, LG V30 comes with Android 7.1.2. LG has loaded some custom software features onto the V30 as well, like an Always On Display that’ll give you shortcuts to Quick Tools and Music Player features without you turning on the display. And because the V30 ditches the secondary display found on previous LG V series phones, it’s got the Floating Bar, a semi-transparent strip that appears on your home screen and can be customized with up to five apps that you want quick access to.
So now that we know the launch date and price of the LG V30, will you be picking one up?
