LG V30 Raspberry Rose Edition

LG has struggled recently with their mobile division. Despite innovating in other areas such as with the world’s first 8K TV and a more affordable 4K projector, they’ve seen low sales overall with a number of their smartphone lines. The LG V30 Raspberry Rose Edition announced at CES 2018 hopes to revitalize sales with a beautiful and vibrant new color variation.

Release Date: Will soon be available in South Korea, Asia, and parts of Europe; no current plans for a North American release

Price: $800 to $840

Vivo X20 Plus UD

Vivo X20 Plus UD

The Vivo X20 Plus UD is very similar to the already released Vivo X20 Plus model with one major difference: the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint scanner. This is a technology we haven’t seen much of thus far, and may be the alternative we need to avoid awkwardly placed rear scanners as screen sizes increase and bezels become non-existant.

Release Date: Early 2018

Price: TBA
