LG V30 Will Also Get A Second Year Promise warranty

The LG V30 hasn’t yet actually landed in US shores but it is already sweetening the pot, so to speak. In addition to possibly having one of the most accessible prices among this year’s top of the line smartphone, AT&T may have accidentally leaked another offer that could make LG’s 2017 champ even more desirable. Like the LG G6 before it, LG might offer the V30 with a two-year warranty instead of just one under its “Second Year Promise” program.

Despite OEMs and users getting used to two-year software updates, manufacturers, carriers, and retailers really only offer a one-year limited warranty for the hardware. Trying to buck that trend, LG announced its Second Year Promise last June to give the G6 an effective two-year limited warranty. And it seems that LG will be making the same offer for the V30 as well.

That clue came from a reputable source, which in this case is AT&T itself. It published what should have been a promotional video about the V30’s features. However, it may have accidentally included a small peek at the said Second Year Promise. AT&T already took down the video, but not before the Internet already saved it for posterity.

There are no details about the V30’s two-year warranty but it should be the same as the G6’s. That is, it would add another 12 months on top of the first 12 for absolutely free. The only requirement is to register within 90 days of purchase. However, buyers should also note that it only covers manufacturer defects and not accidental damages, including water ones.

US availability details are still unknown at this point, but now we do know that it will at least be available from AT&T. The LG V30 just launched in Korea last week, which starts off the global launch. We could be looking at an early October launch for the US, with a price that LG hints will definitely be lower than that of Korea’s.
