A Very “Thin Line” Separates LG V30 & LG V30+

The new LG smartphone, LG V30, which has been on the news for a while now is set to be released on the 5th of October and the major carriers are prepared to sell this smartphone. However, if you follow LG closely, you will notice that there is also a V30+ model and the differences between the V30 and V30+ is on a “microscopic scale”.

A very thin line separates these two models and without a proper search, you may as well think that they are the same product with different nomenclature.  Here are the three major differences between these smartphones

  • The LG V30+ is equipped with 128 GB of internal memory, while the V30 sports 64 GB. The internal memory for both devices are expandable via microSD cards thus the latter can be expanded to meet up with the former.

  • At launch, Sprint has the exclusive right to sell LG V30+, other major US carriers such as Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile will sell the LG V30.
  • The  V30+ model has an LG QuadPlay earbuds in the box while the LG V30 doesn’t have any and you will have to purchase one if you need it.

The last two differences are not really a big deal because, with time, LG V30+ will probably be sold by other carriers and the presence of earbuds are not really a talking point for smartphones. That leaves us with only the first point been a major difference and it has a solution – microSD cards.

LG V30 and LG V30+ are identical in all ramifications and it is believed that their current Android 7.1.2 Nougat will be updated to Android 8 Oreo sometime in the future. In terms of colour,  these smartphones seem to have the same colour combination. Initially, it appeared like the black color variant will be exclusive to LG V30+, however, AT&T will offer a similar black version for the V30.
