LG announced the device this morning, which is based on the LG V30 flagship device and will be sold locally in South Korea for 2 million won, according to The Verge.

The company said the zirconium ceramic material, which is resistance to abrasion and corrosion, will help the product maintain what it calls a "simple and delicate design" for a long period. Interestingly, LG will be selecting few lucky owners to have their names engraved on the back plate.

The 6-inch smartphone comes with a OLED FullVison display with thin bezels, along with the dual-lens rear camera that has a very bright F1.6 aperture, also adopted on the V30 smartphone. The phone also features LG Pay and already runs the latest Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

For pricing, LG is charging a $1,000 premium over a standard V30, totaling $1,800 in USA dollars.

The LG Signature Edition phone is the first smartphone in the LG Signature Edition line, which has released home electronics in the past.
