While the first half of the year is traditionally a bit more fast-paced for mobile launches, the second half of the year isn't left wanting; Apple usually announce their phones in September, and in the Android space, manufacturers usually use the second-half of the year to launch their second-tier phones. Fresh information suggests that the LG V30 would be available in the United States nearly one month after its official unveiling.
After launching a day before the IFA 2017, LG V30 will reportedly go on sale in the S.Korean markets starting September 15. The source has shared some internal documents which contain LG's plans for its new flagship.
As with the company's previous generation smartphones, LG V30 is expected to get dual rear cameras, glass back, rear-fingerprint scanner, and a built-in headphone DAC. Those in the United States can pre-order the phone on September 17 and it will be officially on sale via various retailers eleven days after. The sale is expected to begin from 28 September in the country. As of this writing, there is no information on the pricing of the LG V30.
As for the latest release updates about the Note 8, it looks like the Samsung phone has now been certified by the Federal Communications Commission. However, the LG V30 that will be debuting a week later could be the biggest rivaling for the Note 8. It is expected to feature 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Early renders include a slide-out secondary display, although it's not clear if LG has any intention to go with the same designs. When it comes to the phone's SoC, the V30 could be powered by the Snapdragon 835.
