South Korean electronics company, LG has announced its flagship smartphone, the LG V30+ in India today. Priced at Rs 44,990, the LG V30+ gives a run for other flagship smartphones from companies such as Samsung, Google, and Apple. It seems like LG has learnt its mistakes from the past and priced the V30+ affordably in the country. The device will be up for sale in India starting December 18 as an Amazon Exclusive.
LG also announced an early bird offer, under which it is offering free one-time screen replacement and wireless charger. The V30+ was originally unveiled at the IFA 2017 event in September 2017, and the company took a long time to launch it in India. In the next three months or so, the LG G7 will land in the country, and it’s expected to feature Snapdragon 845 SoC.
