The LG V30+ is the latest premium flagship smartphone that the South Korean company has unveiled in India today to take on the likes of the Apple iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 duo, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 and OnePlus 5T. LG will be not selling the LG V30 phone that features 64 GB of storage in India. Hence, the LG V30+ that has been launched in the country features a larger internal storage of 128 GB.
According to LG, the LG V30+ that has a thickness of 7.3mm and weight of 158 grams is the lightest 6-inch smartphone available in the market. The LG V10 and V20 smartphones that were respectively launched in 2015 and 2016 featured a secondary ticker screen. Since LG has switched to OLED panel on LG V30+ instead of LCD panel, the smartphone does not feature a secondary ticker screen. The purpose of the secondary screen is fulfilled by a new floating bar that gives access to frequently used apps, contacts, camera and notifications.
