LG announces a $1,800 Zirconium Ceramic-clad smartphone for its home market

Late last year, LG released its ultra-premium smartphone under its Signature Edition line, costing a little over $1,800. Despite it costing an arm and leg, the handset proved to be quite popular, selling out in a relatively short time. Now, LG is back at it again, offering up the Signature Edition for 2018, this time, paired with Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones.

LG will begin selling the new Signature Edition smartphone starting on July 30, and will start delivery on August 13. Like its predecessor, the handset will have a limited run, with the firm only making 300 units available to the public, priced at 1,999,800 won or around $1,788 USD.

As far as features go, the handset will offer a design that looks similar to the V30 line, but the rear of the device will be made from Zirconium Ceramic. The material will look quite elegant, but at the same time will provide excellent durability from daily use. Those that want to get something a bit more unique will have the option of having their Signature Edition engraved with their name.

When it comes to specifications, the smartphone is no slouch, being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. The phone will have a 6-inch AMOLED display and a 3,300mAh battery. Unfortunately, it's exclusive to South Korea.
