With a rumored price of over US$900, the upcoming LG V30s is expected to fit in the same niche of the market as the iPhone X and Note 8 (at least price-wise), while its new camera is rumored to provide AI capabilities similar to Samsung's Bixby Vision camera feature.

Although many bad things can be said about some of its older siblings, the LG V30 is one of the most underrated smartphones currently on the market, as shown in our in-depth review. Sadly, it looks like the sins of the past are still following LG, but the upcoming V30s might help this brand's mobile division finally get the recognition it deserves for its efforts.

Last month, LG's CEO Cho Seong-jin talked about the company's plans for the future, revealing the plans to "retain existing models longer by, for instance, unveiling more variant models of the G series or V series." The LG V30s would be such a model, so we can expect at least some of its specs to remain unchanged when compared to the LG V30. However, the rumors about the upcoming flagship's specs and features mention two key elements:

  • 256 GB of internal storage (compared to 64 GB on the V30 and 128 GB on the V30 Plus)
  • LG Lens (AI features similar to Bixby Vision)

Since the price of the LG V30s is expected to be higher than US$900, it will have to fight the Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone X in terms of value. However, it should be noted that the LG V30 Signature Edition, a limited edition flagship with 256 GB storage that only launched in South Korea, had a price tag of almost US$2,000.

The LG V30s is rumored to arrive in early March, around the same time as the Samsung Galaxy S9. Considering this, it would not be surprising to see the upcoming LG flagship unveiled later this month in Barcelona, at the MWC 2018 trade show.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
