That’s not exactly cheap, but it makes the phone more affordable than many recent flagships — but the LG Velvet has a mix of mid-range and high-end features.
It has an attractive new design and support for a Wacom stylus, LG’s optional Dual Screen case accessory, a 6.8 inch OLED display and 8GB of RAM. But it also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor rather than an 800-series chip.
Here’s a run-down of the phone’s key specs:
- 6.8 inch, 2460 x 1080 pixel P-OLED display with 20.5:9 aspect ratio
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor
- 8GB RAM
- 128GB UFS 2.1 storage + microSD card reader (up to 2TB)
- 48MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide + 5MP depth cameras
- 16MP front camera
- 4,3000 mAh battery
- Qi wireless charging
- IP68 water resistance
- Headphone jack
The phone supports 5G connectivity and also features Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC support. The three cameras on the back of the phone are lined up in a row and offer support for time lapse photography, ASMR-mode recording, and “voice out-of-focus” noise reduction to help improve vocals during a video recording session.
There’s no word on if or when the phone will be available outside of South Korea.
