LG to release premium Signature smartphone

The LG V30 Signature Edition phone's specs are nearly similar to the standard variant.

Another notable change from the LG V30 is the build. "Signature" ditches the standard glass back for a zirconium ceramic back with essentially the same design.

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. The Signature Edition phone is a first and we have yet to see how the market will respond to it. LG Signature products actually do well but we're curious how the phone will perform.

The 6-inch smartphone comes with a OLED FullVison display with thin bezels, along with the dual-lens rear camera that has a very bright F1.6 aperture, also adopted on the V30 smartphone.

Ed Sheeran tops Apple and Spotify lists
This year Spotify has also launched a personalised 2017 Wrapped feature to compare your individual taste with that of the nation. According to the streaming service, the " Wild Thoughts " singer is the most streamed female artist for the third year in a row.

Those things aside, the LG Signature Edition matches the V30 Snapdragon 835, but has 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and Android 8.0 out of the box. LG also says that this reduces scratches, and customers will have the option to have their names engraved on the phone.

As per the company, LG will produce only 300 Signature Edition units.

Buyers will also be getting two Bang & Olufsen headsets along with the handset - a Bluetooth one, and a wired one.
