The latest smartphones from Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics have officially hit the shelves in Korea.
LG's latest offering is the V30, while Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 goes on sale after logging domestic pre-orders of 850-thousand units.
Attention is focused on whether the V30 can compete with the Note 8, which has already outstripped expectations with its pre-orders.
Apple's iPhone 8, that may be released in Korea next month,is adding extra spice to the premium smartphone competition.
With its relatively affordable price tag and impressive features, LG hopes the V30 can turn the company's fortunes around after sluggish smartphone sales in recent years.
