The LG V30 will be available for purchase in Canada starting next week Friday, October 20th. This will come about a week after the last of U.S. carriers, which begin selling the phone as from this week.
According to LG Canada, those who can’t wait to get their hands on the new multimedia powerhouse will be able to do so through a number of carriers that include Bell, Rogers, TELUS, Freedom Mobile, Koodo, and Fido. To get your hands on the LG V30 through any of these carriers, you will need a whopping $1100 CAD, but this cost can drop to as little as $400 CAD if you choose to go with a 2-year contract.
One little problem, though, is that fans of the LG V30 in Canada will be limited to just one color variant of the phone – Cloud Silver. Other markets will also get Moroccan Blue, which makes up the second of only two color options available. In terms of other specs, the V30 ships with a 6-inch POLED display screen with a QHD+ resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 on top.
The phone’s body comes with IP68 certification as well as MIL-STD-810G compliance, just like the LG V20. Under the hood, there’s a Snapdragon 835 SoC mated with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Even though there’s a 128GB LG V30+ version, it’s not yet confirmed for the Canadian market. The camera on the back is a dual 16MP+13MP shooter with the largest aperture in a smartphone camera (f/1.6), OIS and a 5MP selfie shooter.
The phone is kept alive by a decent 3300mAh battery unit that is not removable like the LG V20, but still supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. You also get features such as a 3.5mm audio jack, USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.0 and QDAC for enhanced audio performance.
