Get an unlocked LG V30 for just $250 on eBay

Although there have now been three successors to the LG V30 — V30S, V35, and V40 — the phone has only been out for a bit over a year. Thus, it's pretty surprising that an AT&T unlocked version can now be had for $249.99 new, which is a lot more appealing than its $799.99 MSRP.

Google confirms autofocus not working in ARCore for several LG phones

Thanks to its ARCore SDK, Google made developing augmented reality applications more accessible and streamlined. To guarantee a consistent experience across devices, the Californian giant has put a certification process in place, through which it ensures the camera, motion sensors, and CPU perform as expected. Among the list of officially supported handsets are the LG G7, V30, V35, and V40 series, which offer the same motion tracking as other certified products. Nevertheless, Google acknowledged autofocus is not correctly working on these phones for the time being, although that shouldn't alter the end user's experience.

AT&T starts rolling out updates with fake '5G Evolution' icon, just as promised

Most of you are probably familiar with AT&T's very misleading initiative to dub an enhanced version of 4G LTE "5G Evolution." As the top comment on that post predicted, the "5G E" icon has begun to roll out very quickly, already hitting both the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy S8 active less than two weeks after the announcement.

Verizon V30 update brings handful of new camera features, always-on display tweaks, and recent monthly patches

The V30 may be over a year old at this point, but the Verizon version was updated just yesterday with a handful of new features, including some camera functionality tweaks and additional always-on display modes inherited from the newer G7. The security patch level has also been bumped up to November 2018.

Unlocked LG V30+ falls to just $400 on Amazon for today only

LG's latest phones themselves haven't been horrible, but the bang for the buck they've been offering hasn't been great. The V30+, an upgraded V30 with more storage and earphones included, was released back in late 2017 at an MSRP of a whopping $929.99. This latest Amazon deal brings the price down to a much more reasonable $399.99, though it's only available for around 10.5 more hours as of publishing time.

LG's bootloader unlock tool now works on some international G7 and V30 models

Some smartphone manufacturers have their own bootloader unlock tools, and LG is one of them. It made its debut back in 2015 with the H815 G4, but it's since added plenty more phones to the roster. Two of the latest phones to join are the G7 and V30, though only the European models are currently supported.

T-Mobile resumes Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for LG V30 and V30+

 

T-Mobile has resumed its rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo for the LG V30 and V30+ almost three weeks after it was halted. You'll need to be running the latest version of the McAfee Security for T-Mobile app (version 4.9) to get your hands on it.

[Update x2: OTA halted] Android 8.0 Oreo now available for T-Mobile LG V30

It has taken a while for LG to update its 2017 ultra-flagship to the latest (major) release of Android. The Android Oreo OTA rolled out in South Korea at the end of last year, with a later update adding features from the V30 ThinQ. The Sprint V30 received Oreo in March, followed by AT&T a few days later and Verizon in April.

LG V30S ThinQ available for pre-order in the US at the astronomical price of $930

LG announced a new version of the V30 at Mobile World Congress this year called the V30S ThinQ. At the time, it wouldn't commit to launching the phone in the US. Now, pre-orders for the North American V30S ThinQ are live, and the price tag is bordering on insulting. The B&H product page lists this phone at $929.99. Yikes.

Verizon LG V30 update adds AI camera and ThinQ branding

At Mobile World Congress, LG announced a new version of the V30 called the V30S ThinQ, but it wasn't actually new. There were no hardware changes to enable the AI camera features (just more storage and RAM), so there was nothing stopping LG from rolling them out in an update. It did so in Korea last month, and now the same re-branding is coming to Verizon in the latest update.
