LG Signature Edition phone is the super V30+ you can’t have

LG Signature Edition phone is the super V30+ you can’t have

LG has a rather odd product strategy with its V30 flagship. Just a month after it launched, it was followed immediately by a V30+, a slightly beefed up version that was available from limited carriers only. Although it now at least waited two months, LG has announced yet another “upgraded” model. The good news is that you might not be able to get your hands on this very limited LG Signature Edition phone just announced in Korea.

LG V30 finally launches in Europe via carriers

LG V30 finally launches in Europe via carriers

Manufacturers sometimes make the weirdest decisions in the name of business, citing market analysis and such. Samsung, for example, didn’t make the Galaxy Note 5 available in Europe because it believed the productivity-focused phablet would have no audience there. LG has made it V series similarly unavailable in the market for various other excuses. Fortunately, that was promised to change with the LG V30 and that promise has finally happened, months after the smartphone launched elsewhere.

LG V30+ is also coming to T-Mobile next week

T-Mobile will have a pretty big weekend next week. No, it won’t be launching a new flagship, since we’ve practically run out of flagships to launch at this point. It will be launching, instead, two flagship-level smartphones. Or in this case, a “flagship plus”. After being not so exclusively available on Sprint and US Cellular, the LG V30+ is coming to the T-Mobile, giving LG fans from the carrier grown a bit in disappointment. Then again, maybe not.

LG V30 boasts faster wireless charging thanks to IDT, Qi EPP

With Apple finally joining the fray, wireless charging technology is expected to get a rather significant boost in popularity and adoption in the months and years to come.

(IDT) are trying to do by claiming that the LG V30 is the fastest wireless charging smartphone in the market.

The most common issue seen in descriptions of the device seems to have to do with the device's coloring and/or texture. Our own review by Chris Davies said that the display on the Pixel 2 XL is "muted and blue-tinged off-axis."

LG V30 fingerprint scanner fails when heavily scratched

JerryRigEverything is back and he’s got his own LG V30 in his hands. The last time Zack Nelson was seen with the smartphone was when LG flew him over for a sponsored teardown and look into the V30’s prized cameras. Now the YouTuber has bought his own unit with no strings attached for the sole purpose of our entertainment education.

LG V30+ is also available on US Cellular

LG V30+ is also available on US Cellular

US carriers have redefined what the word "unlimited" means these days, and at least one seems to be redefining the word "only" as well. Two weeks ago, Sprint boasted that it was the "only major US carrier" to offer the LG V30+, but it naturally failed to mention other "minor" carriers that will offer it as well. And that is exactly the case when the LG V30+ unexpectedly popped up at US Cellular, and you won't even have to wait to buy one.

LG V30 now available from carriers, including T-Mobile

LG seems to have the worst timing this year, even, and especially, when it tried to actually steer clear of its competitors. It launched the LG G6 ahead of the Galaxy S8 but had to make do with last year's Snapdragon 820. And even when it had a month's time, it is launching the LG V30 just a day after Google made its big Pixel 2 splash. Nonetheless, LG fans and those that don't swing Google's way can now get the V30 from major US carriers. Yes, including from T-Mobile.

LG V30 US launch details you need to know

The time has finally come, and just in the nick of time. Or not. LG has just announced that its late 2017 flagship, the LG V30 will be hitting US shores in the next two weeks. Major US carriers have also put more specific dates on that promise, which all starts next week. But LG might have taken its sweet time far too long as those dates will inconveniently coincide with the Google Pixel 2 launch and the iPhone X pre-orders.
