Update: LG has officially launched the LG V30 Plus in India. The handset arrives in Aurora Black and Cloud Silver color options — though others may be available later — priced at ₹44,990 (~$699), and it will be sold exclusively through Amazon.in.

The LG flagship, which bears a striking, 6-inch QHD+ display, is set to be released in the region on December 18, but pre-orders for it will go live from tomorrow.

Check it out over at Amazon here and head below for our previous coverage on its release in India.

LG released two versions of its LG V30 flagship this year… kind of. The LG V30 Plus is the same phone as the LG V30, but it has 128 GB of storage instead of 64. It’s common for manufacturers like LG and Samsung to offer a few storage options for their devices, but somewhat uncommon to give them different names when that is the only difference.

Up until now, fans in India had been unable to get their hands on the LG V30 Plus unless they imported it from another country. Importing a device is less than ideal because it can lead to issues with cellular bands and warranties. Luckily, those issues will be a thing of the past as of December 13 when LG officially unveils the V30 Plus in the country.

As a reminder, the LG V30 and LG V30 Plus have a 6-inch, 2880 x 1440 pOLED display. The processor of choice is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. It’s paired with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage that can be expanded via a microSD card. The battery has a capacity of 3,330 mAh and supports Quick Charge 3.0.

The LG V30 is one of the last phones to not only have a headphone jack, but push its functionality. It has a Hi-Fi quad DAC designed to make your music sound even better with wired headphones. The phone also has water and dust resistance, wireless charging, Bluetooth 5.0, and a dual 16 MP + 13 MP rear camera setup.

While we don’t have pricing details right now, LG is holding an event next week to officially launch the phone. We expect to find out then how much it’ll cost and will bring you those details once we get them.
