LG has just announced a new premium smartphone in its homeland, the LG Signature Edition. It is safe to say that this is LG’s most premium offering to date, the company will make only 300 units, and it will become available for purchase later this month, though LG did not share its price point nor exact release date just yet, What the company did share is the phone’s design and its spec sheet, so let’s take a look at all that, shall we.
The LG Signature Edition is a sleek-looking smartphone, which comes with really thin bezels, and it is made out of premium materials, it sports a zirconium ceramic back cover, which should repel scratches like a champ. On top of that, you also get the chance to engrave your name on the back of this phone, presuming you live in South Korea and get a chance to purchase one, of course. The phone sports a frame made out of metal, we’re presuming this is aluminum, though we cannot say for sure. A fingerprint scanner is placed on the back of this phone, along with a dual camera setup, an LED flash, and the laser autofocus sensor. The phone utilizes on-screen buttons, its power / lock key is placed on the right, while you will notice the volume up and volume down buttons on the left. This smartphone is fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor, while it sports a 6-inch QHD+ (2880 x 1440, 538 PPI) OLED panel, which means we’re looking at an 18:9 display here.
