LG Velvet Android 5G Smartphone Released – Specs, Price and Release Date

LG’s new Velvet is said to be a mid-range phone but features high-end specs.

LG recently announced their new Android smartphone, the LG Velvet. There are been several leaks and teasers that surfaced these past few days or weeks; and now the Velvet is official. LG officially launched the Velvet in South Korea, and will be available in the (same) country starting May 15th. So, we may be seeing the Velvet on other parts of the world starting June or July. This new phone is actually very interesting. It features a refreshing design and several features that are not inherent on the V and G series. Check out more details below.

LG Velvet Features and Specs – “Something Different with a Strong Personality”

Right off the bat, the LG Velvet features a new and refreshing design. It is a 5G smartphone that isn’t really a flagship device; but some of its specifications can be considered as a high-end smartphone. According to Senior Vice President of product strategy of LG Mobile Communications Company Chang Ma: “Our new branding reflects current trends of addressing the unique personal tastes and emotions of the individual with a greater emphasis on design,”.

The key point here is the design, and that’s what make the LG Velvet stands out from the myriad of smartphones in the market. This is probably the company’s best-looking smartphone or perhaps one of the best-looking smartphones currently released in the market.

LG Velvet specs price release date

The LG Velvet features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 with 8GB of memory and an Adreno 620 as its GPU. It also has a 128GB built-in internal storage and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. It has a large 6.8”-inch Cinema FullVision OLED display with a 2460×1080 resolution and an aspect ratio of 20.5:9. There is a U-shape notch on the top-front portion for the front-facing camera.

Speaking of camera, the front facing camera is a 16MP shooter; and at the back are three different cameras arranged in a “Raindrop design”. The rear camera features a 48MP main sensor, followed by an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera, and a 5MP for depth. Aside from the camera, the LG Velvet has a feature called “Voice Bokeh” or “Voice Out Focus” that emphasizes the main voice; and an “ASMR mode” that allows the user to capture every minute sound.

LG Velvet Aurora Gray LG Velvet Aurora White

LG didn’t remove the 3.5mm headphone jack, but I’m not sure if this will feature a Quad DAC like the V series. For connectivity, there is a USB 2.0 Type-C; Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 for wireless connectivity. It is also reported that the LG Velvet may support dual screen and stylus support, just the like LG V60 ThinQ.

The LG Velvet measures 167.2mm in height, 74.1mm in width and is about 7.9mm thick. It also weighs around 180 grams. It is powered by a 4,300mAh battery that features fast charging and Qi wireless charging as well. When it comes to protection, the Velvet is rated to have an IP68 splash, water, dust resistance. Interestingly, it is reported to have a MIL-STD 810G certification as well.
