If there was ever a proof point that LG’s mobile division is in trouble or at the very least in disarray, look no further than the LG V30S ThinQ. The company announced this enhanced version of the LG V30 at Mobile World Congress and I use enhanced very liberally. Basically it is a V30 with 6GB of RAM (instead of 4GB) and has a base storage of 128GB (up from 64GB). Throw in a little Artificial Intelligence for improved photos and Android Oreo and badabing! You have a LG V30S.
Spec wise, the V30S is identical to the V30 so you aren’t going to get any improvements as far as the SoC is concerned. It is still running the Snapdragon 835. It has the same display, same chassis design… same everything. You get the idea.
