LG V35 Signature Edition reportedly coming soon with outlandish price point

LG V35 Signature Edition reportedly coming soon with outlandish price point
LG may have indirectly admitted yesterday its flagship smartphone release strategy is somewhat flawed, pointing the finger at “increased marketing investments” for another losing quarter in the mobile industry, but that still doesn’t mean the company is done launching high-end handsets this year.

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.

I double checked if it's not April fools day, I don't see people buying this thing for almost 2K

Idk but it doesn't seem like any LG phone is in great demand or even selling for MSRP. Seems like another quietly brilliant company that is so disconnected it's hard to believe they make smart phones. CEO should be grilled by shareholders as to wtf is their game plan as it's bleeding money profusely without any signs of slowing.

they are faltering like HTC... its sad... the V30 is a good phone, but having 4, 5, 6 different versions floods the market and gives people buyers remorse... let them enjoy their purchase without the feeling that 2 weeks later there is a better one coming out

I'd get a v30 over most flagship right now. I think the s8 is a garbage phone and the s9 is problem the same.
