While rivals like Samsung and HMD Global were busy at the MWC making a big splash with the Samsung Galaxy S9, and the Nokia 8 sirocco, LG decided to announce the LG V30S ThinQ – an interim device that showcases its move towards AI. Today, LG has again introduced a new variant of the flagship LG V30+ based on the manga series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.
The limited edition LG V30+ which is been marketed under the name JOJO L-02K is meant to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the manga series. The device is sadly exclusive to Japan (via NTT DoCoMo) and only 10,000 units of the device are available.
The device features a distinct white paint job on the rear engraved with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure logo, pre-loaded with show-themed wallpapers, UI themes, an augmented reality camera app and JoJo manga editor.
