The LG V30 is easily one of the finest handsets of 2017. Bar none. It looks brilliant, performs brilliantly, and is packed with TONS of useful features and hardware. The net result of this was one of the most satisfying user experiences around in 2017.
I’d take an LG V30 over the iPhone X any day of the week, and twice on a Sunday. It delivered everything I wanted from a flagship phone in 2017 in buckets, was priced excellently, and delivered on almost all of its promises. But the LG V30 has just been usurped… Kinda, anyway.
Meet The LG Signature Phone
The Signature Phone is part of LG’s super-high-end lineup of products which include TVs and washing machines. The handset features the same 6in OLED panel, Snapdragon 835, dual-cameras, Qi charging, and 3,300 mAh battery, but adds in 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The LG Signature Phone has a slightly different design too; the glass back is gone, replaced with a zirconium ceramic back number that keeps more or less the same design as the V30’s.
LG says this material reduces scratches and scuffs. LG will also inscribe your name on the back of the phone too, providing you’re one of the lucky few that are A) able to afford one, and B) actually find one.
This phone will retail for $1800 and LG is apparently only making 300 of them, so they’re super-limited edition.
Interested? You better be in South Korea, as this is the only region where the LG Signature Phone will be available.
At least we still have the LG V30 🙂
