Looking for a new smartphone that’s going to be suitable for virtual reality (VR). Well if you’re in the US then LG will be launching its flagship device, the V30, in the next couple of weeks and to sweeten the deal it’ll be running a national promotion where you’ll be able to secure a free Google Daydream headset as well.
Daydream support was only rumoured until LG officially unveiled the smartphone last month. Available in two models, the V30 (64GB) and V30+ (128GB), it’ll feature a 6-inch QHD+ FullVision OLED display and Hi-Fi Quad Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the V30 weights in at 158g, has an IP68 water and dust resistance rating, an f/1.6 on its 16MP c lens with an additional a 13Mp wide-angle camera and it’ll be available in Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet depending on the carrier.
As for the VR side of things, not only will the promotion gift owners a new headset, they’ll also receive a ‘Top VR Content Bundle’ states LG’s press release, which is worth $40 USD. It’ll include five videogames for owners to dive right into VR, although the company hasn’t yet confirmed which titles the bundle may include.
The V30 will be available for pre-order/purchase at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon. At present AT&T will offer the V30 in-store from 6th October, for $810, while T-Mobile’s pre-orders begin on 5th October with in-store/online sales starting 30th October for $800.
