The Signature Edition looks a lot like LG's newest flagship, the V30, and has numerous same specifications, though there are a few upgrades to help justify that near $2000 price.

LG has also changed the glass at the back to Zirconium ceramic which is less prone to scratches. Ouchies! Don't worry, though, because LG says they will even engrave the device for you, so there's that. It will run the latest Android 8.0 Oreo system and be fitted with a 6-inch OLED FullVision screen.

First, the V30 Signature Edition has 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage rather than 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage like the standard variant. Perhaps as a bit of a surprise, the smartphone will make its debut with Android 8.0 Oreo, which is now not available as an official release for LG's other handsets. It packs a 3300mAh battery that supports Qi wireless charging. However, it is likely to be the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC that is powering the LG V30.

The South Korean tech giant said the LG Signature Edition smartphone will hit shelves later this month, with just 300 devices to be sold overall. But it is yet to see how these complimentary offerings would help to persuade customers opting the over-priced smartphone. If that wasn't enough of a hurdle, the smartphone will only be available in South Korea and will be priced at two million Won or around $1,820 Dollars.
