US Cellular started selling both variants of the newly released LG V30 earlier today, offering the regular V30 and V30 Plus on its prepaid plans and with installment pricing. The V30 can be purchased from the company for $28.32 per month for two and a half years with a new Retail Installment contract and a Total Plan, whereas the V30 Plus will set you back $30.20 per month over the same period, subject to identical conditions. Those willing to sign up for a Simple Connect prepaid plan can purchase the LG V30 and V30 Plus for $299.99 and $349.99, respectively, US Cellular revealed.
The Chicago, Illinois-based mobile service provider is only the second wireless carrier in the United States to sell the LG V30 Plus after Sprint announced the same model as its temporary stateside exclusive in late September. The two handsets are relatively similar and only differ in regards to their internal storage and accessories; the LG V30 Plus ships with 128GB of flash memory and LG QuadPlay earbuds, whereas the regular V30 has 64B of native storage and comes with a pair of headphones that weren't specifically designed to utilize the smartphone's Hi-Fi digital-to-audio converter (DAC). The Seoul-based tech giant equipped both models with a 6-inch P-OLED panel boasting a QHD+ resolution and a tall aspect ratio of 18:9, with the two flagships also featuring Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC and 4GB of RAM. The rear panel of the LG V30 accommodates a dual-camera setup comprising a 16-megapixel sensor and a 13-megapixel one, with the former being mounted behind the brightest mobile lens in the industry boasting an aperture of f/1.6. The slim top bezel of the phablet has a 5-megapixel (f/2.2) sensor, with the device itself being powered by a 3,300mAh non-removable battery and featuring IP68 elements resistance.
Consumers who purchase either the LG V30 or V30 Plus from US Cellular will be eligible to receive a free unit of the second-generation Google Daydream View headset, as well as a virtual reality content bundle. The same offer extends to users who buy the device from other companies and requires you to register your purchase with the South Korean OEM. Doing so will also allow you to extend your limited warranty by an additional year free of charge, while the VR games and experiences included in the promo bundle will be redeemable on the Google Play Store with a promo code that you'll receive from LG.
