The LG V30 looks to be the first device in LG's V series to move away from the content creator-cum-enthusiast demographic. While the device looks incredibly good, issues with its display have marred its success commercially.

LG released the V30 and V30 Plus months ago, with the flagship—singular in this case, as the only difference between the two devices is increased internal storage memory—getting mostly positive reviews. While the V30 is considered to be a solid offering by LG, it's marred by a sub-standard display, the same issue that also troubles the Pixel 2 XL. 

In spite of that, the device stands at the peak of high-feature flagships in the market but it just doesn't seem to be making the commercial headway it should, perhaps due to LG's poor marketing or a series of non-optimal business decisions. One of those decisions has to be LG's snubbing of the Indian market. The LG V30 has been unavailable in India since launch, with prospective buyers having to import one. While the Indian market is undoubtedly geared towards budget devices, it's still telling that a company on the scale of LG ignored a market that's now ranked second globally.

The company only just released unlocked versions of the device, which is sure to also detract from commercial successes—an occurrence that's become the norm with LG in the recent past. Better late than never, in any case, and LG fans in India will finally get the flagship they want. Not until December 13, though.

Pricing details are unknown at the moment but all will be revealed at the launch event next week.

We'll be sure to keep you updated.
