T-Mobile intros the LG V30+, 128 GB of storage space and premium headsets included


Previously sold only by Sprint and US Cellular, the LG V30+
(or V30 Plus) is now ready to be released on T-Mobile – which, of course, is

– that’s also the day when the carrier starts selling the rugged Samsung Galaxy
S8 Active. According to T-Mobile, the V30+ will be available in limited
quantities, costing $850 outright, or $130 down and $30 per month over 24
months. This makes the new handset $50 more expensive than the regular V30.

 

There are only two differences between the LG …

Back in March, HMD Global (the new company that’s in charge
of selling Nokia-branded phones) unveiled a special edition of the mid-range

months after the regular version of the phone was released stateside.

 

The Nokia 6 Arte Black is now listed on Amazon, HMD’s
official retail partner for the US. Unfortunately, the handset is

(though soon is probably a good guess). 

 

Amazon will sell the Nokia 6 Arte Black …

The LG V30+ (likely with 128 GB of storage space) is launching on Sprint

Sprint today became the first US carrier to confirm the upcoming release of the LG V30+, which is expected to be a slightly upgraded version of the V30 that LG announced hours ago at IFA 2017.

Sprint hasn’t mentioned this, but the LG V30+ probably offers 128 GB of storage space, instead of the 64 GB found inside the regular V30. That aside, the two smartphones should be similar – though we’re still waiting for a confirmation on this.

Other US carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, only revealed plans to release the regular V30, so Sprint could …
