It’s a pricing strategy designed to undercut Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8
We finally have a clear idea of LG’s pricing strategy for their upcoming phablet, the V30. According to a report in Korea, the other Korean firm is looking to undercut Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 by pricing their new flagship a thousand Won cheaper to make it more attractive to potential customers.
LG V30 Specs:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor
- 4GB LPDDR4 RAM
- 6.0-inch 18:9 QuadHD+ OLED FullVision Display (2880 x 1440 / 538ppi) with Corning Gorilla Glass 5
- 64GB UFS 2.0 internal storage (128GB for the V30+), expandable up to 2TB via microSD
- Standard 16-megapixel, f/1.6 and wide-angle 13-megapixel, f/1.9 rear cameras
- Wide-angle 5-megapixel, f/1.9 front camera
- 4G LTE
- WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, A-GPS, GLONASS
- USB Type-C port, Fingerprint sensor, Voice and Face Recognition
- 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC
- Android 7.1.2 Nougat (LG UX 6.0 UI)
- 3300mAh Li-Ion battery, with Quick Charge 3.0, wireless charging support
While Samsung is currently pricing the base 64GB model of the Galaxy Note 8 at ?1,090,000 (Php 49.2K) and the 256GB version at ?1,250,000 (Php 56K), LG’s pricing their new flagship V30 at ?998,000 (Php 45K) for the top-of-the-line 128GB version. The base 64GB model is set to be priced even lower, at ?949,300 (Php 42.8K).
That’s obviously far from the expected $749.99 pricing of the device that was rumored a week earlier, but it’s still palatable for people looking for a Galaxy Note 8 alternative.
Obviously that’s pricing in LG’s home country of Korea – Philippine pricing hasn’t been set as of yet and there’s no guarantee that local pricing will follow the one in Seoul.
