    Info for the H933 has been on the LG Canada site for more than a week already.

    Also, your article should link to this page:

    Its been on there for a while, the LG Mobile Canada page has been promoting it like crazy as well, just no price or dates.

  • Omar

    It’s probably going to end up $1100-1200 CAD unfortunately.

    • Will Maitner

      If it does they might as well not release it.

    • Elky64

      Does seem to be the trend though, tack on a few extra $$$ to keep pace with the rest. Guess at some point it’ll come to a head, people refusing to buy at inflated prices but don’t see that happening for a while.

      If it’s like recent LG devices the price might plummet not too long afterwards 😉

      I’m hoping it’s also like recent LG devices and gets LineageOS support swiftly; I like the hardware but can’t stand LG’s software.

    • Elky64

      It might but won’t hold my breath it will.

    • Elky64

      That’s definitely my guess too. Initial reports I saw stated $1000 and thought to myself “are they dreaming”, so no way that is happening.

      To get the Note 8 for $550 with TELUS, you have to add $10/month to whatever plan you choose. Without doing that, it’s $750. So, in essence, over the course of a 2 year term, you’re paying $240 to save $200 up front.

    • Elky64

      All I can say is “bend over” as its only going to get worse.

    • Whome

      Which is why I always end up getting the previous model year. Specs are still good and at a lot less money.

    • Elky64

      Nothing wrong with that, actually a smart move if you can resist temptations of the latest and greatest. Did that myself recently by purchasing the GS7 Edge, but I still want the V30 😉

      One problem I’m seeing though, soon we’ll have to go down several rungs if we are to distance ourselves from these insane pricing trends as I don’t see them getting any better… Of course, if people start hanging onto their devices for a bit longer that might have an impact.

    • Omar

      Well the V20 was (and is) $1000 so technically if the V20 was priced at $1000 that would be a “good thing.” Lol.

    • Elky64

      Good thing for LG maybe, now there’s justification in a price hike. I’ll wager the V30 will be in the $1150-$1250 range

  • milfou

    It has been on the site over 2 weeks.

    • Felix

      I came here to say that

    • will

      I saw it there since it launched. No LATE bands on spec sheet.

    • Whome

      And your point is?

  • Ernie

    Please koodo carry this!!

  • dirtyKIMCHI

    Well, the H933 variant of the LG V30 received ISED Certification on Friday (just checked the equipment search). Its Certification number is 2703C-H933.

    Blue is the best color !!! Bell mobility… I hope !

    This is the biggest problem with LG. They announce a phone, then take months to put it out on the market, particularly in Canada. My excitement of the phone has dropped to zero as I’m now ready to see next year’s flagship devices. If LG were to release their phones in all markets within a month of their announcement, they would sell many more phones. Smarten up LG!!!

    • Jas Kamoh

      Agreed, I’ve contacted LG Canada and their reply has been “Details coming soon” for last several weeks. It was just made available in the U.S. through carriers late last week. Why put the effort into a product if you cannot get it out to consumers in a timely manner.

    • tvguy

      Yes, if you launch the B&H app on a mobile device, it shows the unlocked version is coming Oct 27. This is probably the best choice since lg will likely allow for an unlocked bootloader. I think, however, I’ll wait until the new year to purchase the phone as LG generally discounts heavily after several months.

    • Jas Kamoh

      Just received a reply back from LG Canada Customer Service rep, Dave H. Saying “The V30 should be available by the end of October.”

    • Francis Taquin

      I just called LG, and the lady told me that the LG V30 would not be available in Canada for a few months. Each person does not say the same thing … 🙁

    • Jas Kamoh

      Guess LG doesn’t need the sales. Maybe the Mate 10 Pro will come to Canada.

    • Francis Taquin

      LG V30 october 20 🙂

    • jay

      they had no choice because of all the other phones that came after. iphone note 8 and pixel…

    • tvguy

      That makes no sense. Of course they had a choice. They need to drastically improve their distribution system.

    • The Finder

      it doesn’t matter, that’s their competition. The consumer is what matters and they shouldn’t have to endure a massive lag.

    LG V30 — october 20 in Canada.
