We have about a week left till the launch of LG's new flagship V30. It has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors till now.
A few days ago, Korean publication ETNews claimed that LG will also launch a Plus variant of the smartphone at the event. Now, popular leakster Evan Blass has also suggested that we will get to see the unveiling of both LG V30 and LG V30 Plus at the upcoming launch event. He has even posted the logo of LG V30 Plus on his Twitter account.
While both LG V30 and LG V30 Plus will look the same as far as the design is concerned, the latter is likely to have slightly better feature. It is speculated that the devices will mainly differ in terms of inbuilt storage capacity. According to the report by the Korean publication, the LG V30 will carry 64GB of internal storage and the LG V30 Plus will have 128GB of storage space.

The report gave out some additional information on the Plus model as well. For example, the smartphones may also differ in their "audio system" and "wireless charging." Unfortunately, the report was not quite clear on what it implies by the audio system.
Earlier it was believed that the LG V30 could feature a kind of Bang & Olufsen audio system. However, this report hinted 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, talking about the pricing, the LG V30 is expected to carry a price tag of $700 (roughly Rs. 45,000). Whereas the Plus model is will be sold at around $875 (approximately Rs. 56,000).
Well, the price difference of more than $100 between the two variants is bothering us. We don't really think people will shell out so much more just for the extra storage space. Considering, both the LG V30 and LG V30 Plus will probably feature the same display, processor, RAM, cameras, battery and IP68 rating.
