    LG’s V30+ gets slated for November release in South Africa

    LG V30 South Africa

    LG South Africa has confirmed that the premium LG V30 will be making landfall in South Africa, and will only be available in the form of the LG V30+.

    We fell in love with the LG G6 following its release on our shores earlier this year, though it seems inevitable that the South Korean brand’s latest effort, the LG V30, would arrive on our shores sooner than later.

    In good news, then, LG South Africa has officially confirmed that the LG V30 will become available this November – and that South African consumers can expect to be pick up only the premium LG V30+ from local networks.

    The LG V30+, of course, brings with it Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of expandable storage up to 2TB.

    The handset packs in a 3,300mAh battery as well as a 16-megapixel standard shooter in tandem with a 13-megapixel wide-angle camera, while the handset houses a 5-megapixel selfie camera on its front panel.

    The V30+ is equipped with LG’s first OLED FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and arrives running Android 7.1.2 Nougat.

    The V30+ will be bundled with sibling smartphones when purchased through either Vodacom or MTN – the former will offer a free LG Stylus 3, while the latter will provide customers with a free LG K10 (2017).

    In terms of pricing, LG South Africa has confirmed that the V30+ will retail upwards of R15,469 ZAR, while MTN will offer the V30+ for R709pm on MTN Made for Me.

    We’ll update this story as networks announce contract pricing.

      Yes I am getting it. Can’t wait. Would rather take a free pair of LG tone infinim headphones rather. But if the box comes with B&O headphones I suppose it is not necessary. I am a bit upset that we are not getting the blue one though. I and 4 of my friends really want the blue one. But we are told we are not getting that version.
