LG is attempting to take on Apple in a rather peculiar way: It’s releasing a variant of the V30 that’s even more expensive than the iPhone X. Seriously. The all-new Signature Edition is priced at a more than £1,300.
The base model of the iPhone X, for comparison, retails for a not-so-meagre £999, while pricing for the elusive 128GB model tops out at £1,149. Those wanting to bump up the cost, however, can slap on AppleCare+ for £199 outright.

Now for the mad part. An LG V30 Signature Edition carries an eye-watering price tag of £1,370. That’s £22 more than a 128GB variant of the iPhone X complete with an AppleCare+ warranty – and £571 more than the standard V30.
The Signature Edition is near-identical to the V30, with the main differences being that it ships with Android 8.0, 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage as standard. It’s also constructed from the same ceramic as boutique watches.
V30 Signature Edition won’t be easy to come by
LG will launch the V30 Signature Edition later this month exclusively in South Korea, where only 300 units will be available. Those who decide to pick one up will be entitled to an array of premium services, including personal engraving.
