LG’s latest addition to its flagship smartphone lineup, the LG Signature Edition 2018, has successfully taken down the mighty iPhone X in terms of pricing.

Introduced with a price tag of KWN1,999,800 or around $1795 or Rs 1,23,000 in the Indian currency, the new Signature Edition 2018 from the Korean giant has now become the most expensive smartphone available in the market.

The new LG Signature Edition that is said to be based on the previous years’ flagship launches by LG – the LG V30 and the V35 ThinQ – is almost $800 more expensive than the former most expensive iPhone X.


To know the latest specification additions and upgrade in the new Signature Edition by LG, let us now move on to a quick comparison between the previous years’ V35 ThinQ and the new Signature Edition 2018.

LG V35 to The new Signature Edition 2018: the Upgrades

To talk about the V35 first, it comes with a screen size of 6.0 inches (QHD +OLED) with a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels. The phone sports dual rear cameras of 16 megapixels each, 3300 mAh non-removable battery, a 6GB RAM with the latest Snapdragon 845 processor; altogether with an internal storage of 64 GB which is again expandable up to 2 TB.

On the other hand, the new Signature Edition 2018 by LG happens to be noticeably based on the V35, as far as the design and built is a concern. Sporting the recognisable Zirconium Ceramic Back, the new Signature Edition 2018 has the same 16 megapixels  dual rear camera, an 8 megapixels of front camera, a 6 inches of QHD+ OLED display with 2880×1440 pixels, 6GB of RAM with the latest Snapdragon 845 Octa-Core processor; all of it with an internal storage of 256 GB which is again expandable up to 2TB. However, there are two available colour options to choose from: white and black. Besides, customers can have their names written on the device, if it adds up to an extra feature.

The New Signature Edition 2018 comes with a ‘free’ set of premium Bang and Olufson( B&O) H9i headphones.

Though the specification of LG Signature Edition 2018 looks promising, is the device worthy enough of being the most expensive smartphone? Let us compare the iPhone X with the Signature Edition 2018.


iPhone X vs. LG Signature Edition 2018

The former most expensive smartphone, the iPhone X, is still $800 cheaper than the new Signature Edition 2018 by LG.

The iPhone X flaunts a 5.8 inches Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels against the 6-inches QHD+ OLED display with 2880×1440 pixels resolution equipped the LG Signature Edition 2018. The iPhone X also lags behind with the A11 Bionic Hexacore processor with a 3 GB RAM against LG Signature Edition 2018. having faster Octacore Snapdragon 845 processor with a 6 GB RAM under the hood.

Nowadays camera is playing a vital role in a success of any smartphones. And that’s the reason almost every smartphone manufacturer has started unprecedented attention to camera output. The LG Signature Edition has 16MP dual rear cameras and 8 MP front camera against the 12MP dual camera and a 7MP front camera in the iPhone X.

The iPhone X comes with an internal storage of 64 GB which expandable up to 256 GB. Whereas, the LG variant supports 256 GB internal storage that is expandable up to 2 TB.

Clearly, on paper, the new flagship model by the Korean electronics giant LG, the Signature Edition 2018, seems to justify the hefty price with the enhanced features when compared against the formerly most expensive, iPhone X. However, the sales in the coming quarters would tell whether people see Signatureire Edition 2018 as a value for money. More importantly, can the device match – if not beat – the sales figure of Apple iPhone X?
