At this price point, the LG Signature Edition (2018) smartphone is more expensive as compared to the iPhone X which is selling at Rs 1,02,425.

LG has unveiled the 2018 Signature Edition with some flagship specifications that comes much later after its announcement of its first Signature Edition smartphone in December 2017. Dubbed as LG Signature Edition 2018, the smartphone features a Zirconium ceramic back to avoid scratches.

Customers of the V35 ThinQ Signature Edition will also enjoy a live personal assistant along with premium tailor engravable tailor made leather case. Protecting the display is Corning's Gorilla Glass 5. The smartphone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU. The phone packs 256GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 2000GB via a microSD card. There is a 16MP primary sensor with f/1.6 aperture and 71-degree wide-angle lens.

LG has announced a high-end version of the V35. It has been created to meet the MIL-STD 810G standard. It measures 151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3mm and weighs 157 grams.

Connectivity-wise the smartphone offers 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n ac (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS, NFC (Near Field Communication), USB Type-C, 3.5mm audio jack and 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital-to-analog converter). The device boots Android 8.0 Oreo-based LG UX out of the box. The phone will have a 6-inch AMOLED display and a 3,300mAh battery. This year, LG's new top of the line special edition phone is a V35 ThinQ, but comes with a ceramic body that probably feels incredible to hold. It will be released for self-help and will be sold for 300 units. Chief among these is a set of Bang and Olufsen Beoplay H9i wireless headphones that normally retail separately for US$500. LG allows users to personalize the smartphone by engraving their desired text on to the smartphone. You also shouldn't pick this up even if you could, seeing as how it fetches a whopping 1,999,800 won, roughly equating to $1,780.
