Being slightly smaller than the Galaxy S8+ or upcoming Note 8 means it could be the ideal middle ground for most users. The company's next premier handset, the LG V30, will be made official on August 31 at IFA in Berlin, but LG's making sure everyone knows its biggest selling point today: the camera.

According to a report by ETNews, LG plans to announce a "Plus" variant of the V30 alongside the standard variant during the IFA 2017 event in August. What's the difference between the LG V30 and the LG V30 Plus?

Even though LG is planning to launch the V30 Plus a week after Samsung Galaxy Note 8's release, both phones will be available simultaneously in their home country South Korea.

The rear of the LG V30 camera phone will have a V branding of the phone. It's the first plus-size flagship from the tech giant trying to hit a home-run against the legendary Galaxy Note series. Well, we are just doing guesswork here. The Galaxy S8+, for comparison, is $849 Dollars, so it wouldn't be surprising to see LG's competing model parked around that price point. The V30 Plus will apparently only be launching in South Korea, with the report not indicating if an worldwide launch is even being considered. As it usually is, the Plus model will be a higher-end phone. Aimed for the South Korean market, it won't differ much from the LG V30: aside from basically sporting the same bezel-busting design, it will also have the same internals, as in a Snapdragon 835 chip, 6 gigs of RAM, and a 3,200mAh battery powering the lights. As for the pricing, the former will be sold at around $700 (roughly Rs. 45,000), while the Plus variant will carry a price tag of $875 (approximately Rs. 56,000). We believe the LG V30 will not have the secondary screen, although it could have a similar feature with a software based always-on display section that floats.
