LG Signature Edition (2018) Smartphone Announced, Costs $1790

LG Signature Edition 2018 white color

LG has announced the 2018 model of its Signature Edition smartphone in South Korea, the successor of its Signature Edition 2017 smartphone. It has identical design and nearly the same specs as the V35 ThinQ, but the body element is quite different.

One of the major highlight of the Signature Edition (2018) is the Zirconium metal the phone is made of, which is highly resistant to scratch and has a durable strength. The rear of the device is also made of ceramic, adding to the smooth premium feel.

Perhaps, what is most surprising is that LG is giving interested customers the opportunity to engrave their name at the back of the phone as a customization offer. And lastly, the Signature Edition (2018) comes with twice as much as storage found on the V35 ThinQ plus version, a total of 256GB. A MicroSD slot is provided to further expand the storage up to 2TB.

According to LG, only 300 units will be made, so only the fastest will get it first.

Besides these changes other specs remains the same.
