LG’s premium Signature series targeted at niche consumers has announced an update to the LG Signature Edition smartphone in its home market, South Korea. The signature series claims to provide an exclusive and unique living experience through its products. The previous edition was released in December 2017 and similarly this new variant also packs superior specifications, dual rear camera setup, and a sleek design.

LG offers buyers the option of engraving their names on the back, if they so desire. Additionally, the phone comes bundled with Bang & Olufsen (B & O) Beoplay H9i headphones. The LG Signature Edition 2018 price has been set as KRW 1,999,800. It will be opened for pre-orders from today, and will be sold in the country from August 13th, NDTV Gadgets reported.

The prime offering from LG sports metal edges and a Zirconium Ceramic back that prevents scratches and improves durability. There are notable bezels on the top and bottom of the display, and the fingerprint scanner is located on the back. The camera sports two lenses horizontally, with the flash sitting beside it.

The previous version of LG’s signature phone was not sold in India, something that is unlikely to change with the new version. The higher price point puts the phone somewhere around Rs.1,23,000 on conversion, which makes it extremely expensive with no distinctive elements on board.
