The LG V30 is the smartphone manufacturer’s flagship device for markets around the world. Currently, the only variant available is a slightly upgraded LG V30+ that gets some extra onboard storage. LG has issued a press release indicating a new luxurious “LG Signature Edition” version of the V30 will be released in limited numbers to the South Korean market.
Externally, the new version will be distinguishable from the regular versions thanks to a new zirconium ceramic back cover that will replace the normal glass back. This ceramic cover should be much more scratch resistant than glass or metal. LG says the new version will come in either black or white.
Internally, the LG Signature Edition will be upgraded to 6GB of RAM and onboard storage gets pushed up to 256GB. LG also says the LG Signature Edition will ship with Android Oreo.
Besides the limit on the geographic market – only South Korea – LG is only planning to make 300 units. Along with the upgrades described above, buyers of this special version will be able to get their names engraved on the back plate and their will receive two Bang and Olufsen headsets – one wired and one Bluetooth – in the box. All of this will set buyers back 2 million won ($1,820 USD).
The LG Signature Edition is expected to go on sale before the end of the month, possibly December 27th if the image of the device is dropping a clue.
