Apart from its much awaited V30 phablet, there is talk that LG is also planning to release a V30 Plus variant. According to a report recently published by ETNews, a high ranking official from the South Korean tech giant has apparently offered information that an upgraded edition is also coming besides the regular V30.
“Plus” devices, like Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Plus or Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, typically are physical size upgrade versions of their respective regular base models. In the case of the V30 Plus, the upgrades will be more on the boosted memory configuration (for example, 128 gigabytes instead of the usual 64 gigabytes), as well as an upgraded sound system, and the addition of support for wireless charging.
LG actually has done something like this before. Some may remember that back in June earlier this year, the South Korean phone maker formally introduced the G6 Plus, a few months after the official launch of the G6 flagship offering. When comparing the two, the G6 Plus featured a higher storage capacity than the regular G6, and it also came with a better quality sound support, B&O headphone included in the box, and new color options. Although the G6 Plus was a cool idea in terms of providing an upgraded option for its G6 model, its release may have something to do with injecting some life into the company’s somewhat lethargic sales numbers for its latest flagship device.
As for the V30 Plus, LG may decide to unveil the Plus variant together with the V30 this coming August 31st. The ETNews report indicated that both V30 editions will be released in South Korea on September 15th. The V30 will reportedly be priced at $700, while the V30 Plus will fetch for $875.
In other related news, there are recent rumors that LG might, at long last, activate FM radios in US devices. The mobile manufacturer is said to be joining forces with NextRadio in order to provide American users access to FM radio, free of charge, through its next upcoming smartphone releases.
Activating FM radios in US devices should be straightforward for LG. It is only a matter of enabling FM chips in its future handsets, and if mobile operators are okay with the idea, LG can have the NextRadio mobile app preloaded in those devices, so that the owners of the phones can instantly enjoy listening to local FM stations.
