LG V30+

LG has introduced its high-end flagship phone, the V30+ in India. The phone is said to be the successor of the V20, the V30 that comes with a premium design and premium hardware specs. However the V30+ aims at three aspects: audio, video and photography. The V30+ is the phone that comes with a big bezel-less display, Hi-Fi Quad DAC, and dual rear cameras.
