LG V35 Signature Edition reportedly coming soon with outlandish price point
In addition to the oft-rumored V40 ThinQ, a V35 Signature Edition is also reportedly in the pipeline, although the latter ultra-premium model might not require a very aggressive advertising campaign. That’s because we fully expect it to only go on sale in Korea in extremely limited numbers.
We’re likely talking a few hundred units, at least based on the first-ever LG Signature Edition phone. Closely related to the V30, that overpriced zirconium ceramic beaut was merely sold in 300 copies back in December, all of which were swiftly pre-ordered by “high-income earners and signature enthusiasts.”
As the name suggests, the LG V35 Signature Edition should borrow most of its key specs from the “regular” V35 ThinQ, including a beautiful 2:1 6-inch OLED screen, powerful Snapdragon 845 processor, and AI-enhanced dual rear-facing cameras.
Obviously, in order to justify a price point of around 2 million Korean won, equating to almost $1,800, the exclusivist phone is expected to upgrade a couple of standard V35 features, starting with hefty 256GB internal storage. The already sleek design is likely to get some sort of a luxury makeover, competing against the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS or Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition. LG is reportedly aiming for an August release, but something tells us this isn’t going to show up at IFA Berlin or anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere.
