Hello to a New Era: Meet the LG Velvet

Adios G-series, hello Velvet

After several teasers, LG has officially unveiled the Velvet. The premium mid-range phone aims to replace the G-series and utilizes LG’s new design language. Key characteristics of the Velvet’s new include a triple rear camera setup that is arranged like raindrops and a curved 3D arch display to give it better ergonomics.

The curved display is a large 6.8-inch OLED panel with a tall 20.5:9 aspect ratio. The display has a waterdrop notch that is home to a 16-megapixel selfie snapper. The triple rear camera setup comprises a 48-megapixel main camera with OIS, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

Powering the Velvet is a Snapdragon 765G processor that is paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. A 4300mAh battery keeps the lights on, which supports fast wired charging and wireless charging. Aside from stereo speakers, the Velvet retains the much-beloved headphone jack.

Like the V60 ThinQ, the Velvet will have support for LG’s Dual Screen and Stylus Pen accessories.
