The V30, LG 's most premium phone of the season, will be available on the country's three largest carriers starting Thursday, Oct. 5. 

The phone will be available online and in retail stores for  Verizon  right on Oct. 5, without pre-order. On AT&T, you can purchase the phone online that day too, or buy it in retail stores when it will be available the next day (Oct. 6). You can also buy one V30 and get another free if you add another line and put both  phones  on the AT&T Next upgrade program. Neither carriers have announced pricing.

For T-Mobile customers, pre-orders begin on Oct. 5 and customers can get it online and in stores the next week on Friday, Oct. 13. The phone will cost $800 (or $80 down and $30 a month for 24 months).

As a high-end LG phone, the V30 features a 6-inch OLED display, dual rear cameras (which includes a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens) and a top-tier Snapdragon 835 processor. It's also waterproof and has wireless charging.

When we checked it out, we were impressed with its slick design and thin bezels in addition to its powerful hardware. But as one of the most promising phones of LG this year, it faces stiff competition from the Samsung Galaxy S8 , Motorola Moto Z2 Force and HTC U11 , all of which have comparable specs and a price range from $650-$750.
