LG V30 tipped to launch along with a Plus variant; pricing leaked

Now, we have come across some interesting information. According to the Korean publication ETNews, LG will also launch a Plus variant of the smartphone at the event. As it usually is, the Plus model will be a higher-end phone. So its features will be better than the LG V30. The report further suggests that the devices will differ in terms of inbuilt storage capacity.

Presumably, the LG V30 will carry 64GB of internal storage and the LG V30 Plus will have 128GB of storage space.

Other than that, the devices may also differ in their "audio system" and "wireless charging." Unfortunately, the report is not quite clear on what it implies by the audio system. Rumors have it, the LG V30 could arrive with a kind of Bang & Olufsen audio system.

However, this new report hints towards the possibility if the B&O system will only be present on the V30 Plus model. Or, both the smartphones will feature the B&O audio driver, but differ in their speakers. Well, we are just doing guesswork here.

The publication further claims that both LG V30 and V30 Plus will go on sale from September 15. As for the pricing, the former will be sold at around $700 (roughly Rs. 45,000), while the Plus variant will carry a price tag of $875 (approximately Rs. 56,000).

Now, the question is why the price difference between these two models is more than $100. We don' really think people will shell out so much more just for the extra storage space. The report clearly mentions that both the LG V30 and LG V30 Plus will feature the same display, processor, RAM, cameras, battery and IP68 rating.

In addition, previous rumors of 6GB of RAM, 16MP and 13MP dual-camera setup, and LG Pay support have been affirmed as well.

That being said, since it is not verified yet, you must take the information with a pinch of salt.
