LG V30 Signature Edition unveiled with sleek ceramic body

Share

The LG Signature Edition sports a Zirconium Ceramic-made shell that is touted to be scratch-proof and comes in Black and White colour options.

The LG Signature Edition phone is the first smartphone in the LG Signature Edition line, which has released home electronics in the past. Now LG has upped the ante in the competition, unveiling a ceramic version of the V30 which will be sold in a very limited quantity, exclusively in South Korea. LG adds that buyers will be able to get their names engraved on the device. Among the specs that do remain the same from the regular version are the 6-inch P-OLED screen, the Snapdragon 835 processor, 256GB storage and the 16MP + 13MP dual camera setup. Perhaps as a bit of a surprise, the smartphone will make its debut with Android 8.0 Oreo, which is now not available as an official release for LG's other handsets.

Google to Launch New YouTube Music Service in March
The one major advantage YouTube could have over its rivals is a huge catalog of video content to complement its music library. In a new report, YouTube could introduce a brand new music streaming service sometime in March.

With only 300 units available, the "Signature Edition" will cost about W200 million (US$1=W1,095). It packs a 3300mAh battery that supports Qi wireless charging. The smartphone is also expected to have connectivity options such as 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0 with BLE, NFC, and USB Type-C 2.0 with compatibility for USB Type-C 3.1.

It now seems as if the luxury segment of the smartphone market is as much a reality in Asia as it is in the West. Take the LG V30 Signature edition, for example.
