LG to release premium Signature smartphone

LG launches V30

The LG Signature Edition phone is the first smartphone in the LG Signature Edition line, which has released home electronics in the past. While there is no word on pricing, there will be only 300 models made for the LG Signature Edition, said LG Korea Newsroom.

It now seems as if the luxury segment of the smartphone market is as much a reality in Asia as it is in the West. Take the LG V30 Signature edition, for example.

Cominng to optics, the device comes with a 16MP (regular lens, f/1.6) + 13MP (wide angle lens, f/1.9) dual rear cameras. The device will pack 6GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 2TB using a microSD card.

It features a 6-inch wide OLED screen with a minimal bezel and has a memory capacity of 256 GB.

What's premium about the Signature Edition?

LG announced the device this morning, which is based on the LG V30 flagship device and will be sold locally in South Korea for 2 million won, according to The Verge. If you were to buy one, you could even get your name engraved on the back, and all of this will set you back a whopping $1,800. It also supports LG Pay and Qi Wireless Charging, ships with Android 8.0, and comes with Bang & Olufsen wired earphones and LG's H5 Bluetooth earphones.
