"LG SIGNATURE EDITION will satisfy high-end consumers by providing them with totally new values", an LG official was quoted as saying. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845SoC with Adreno 630 GPU and 6GB of RAM. The primary 16MP camera has a f/1.6 aperture, 71-degree wide-angle lens, whereas the second 16MP sensor comes with a 107-degree super-wide-angle lens and a f/1.9 aperture. Customers can engrave their names on the back of the product and leather wallet case as well; similar to its predecessor. There is also the exclusivity of being one in only 300 to own the LG Signature Edition. Beoplay H9i wireless over-ear headphones, worth as much as 700,000 won, come with the phone.

LG has thrown heavily into audio with its last few phones, and while the Signature Edition (2018) won't be equipped with the LG G7 ThinQ's excellent Boombox Speaker, it will have the quad digital to analog converter (DAC) and AptX HD sound that made the LG V30 such an incredible phone for audiophiles. The device comes with a price tag of 1,999,800 won (Rs 1,22,820 approximately) and will be available for pre-order from today. Up front, it has an 8MP selfie camera with f/1.9 aperture and 80-degree wide-angle lens. It measures 151.70 x 75.40 x 7.30 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 157.00 grams. Notably, this smartphone is meant for the South Korean users alone. The phone has a fingerprint sensor and a B & O branding at the rear. Battery on board is 3300 mAh and it comes with IP68 certification for dust and water-resistance. Of course, as this is a limited edition, so there will be only a total of 300 units and the company will only sell in Korea.
