Everyone got excited after LG made a surprise move with the V30. With all the good things we could say about the V30, the guys from South Korea made another surprise when it comes to its pricing.

The rumor mill started when LG posted a retweet contest for US residents, where they will be giving away their V30s to three lucky Twitter users

A quick peek at the terms and conditions of the contest revealed that the alleged retail value (ARV) of the V30 is $749.99 (~Php38.4k):

ARVs give more or less the possible pricing of a unit, and if the V30 is valued at around $750, that makes the V30 priced $180 cheaper than its closest rival: Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, which is priced at $930. Considering they come head-to-head specs-wise, the pricing should entice people to go for the V30 over the Note 8.
