While most of the smartphone companies keep their upcoming phone’s specs and features as a secret, LG seems to be happy to just reveal details about its upcoming devices before they actually launch. Today, the company unveiled the full specifications for its new flagship smartphone, the LG Velvet ahead of its launch scheduled to next week.
Until now, we knew some of the key specs of the phone, but with this announcement, we have a complete overview of what we are going to have with the LG Velvet smartphone which will launch on May 7.
The upcoming LG Velvet will feature a 6.8-inch OLED display with a 20.5:9 aspect ratio. The display and back cover of the phone will have curved sides with a width of 74.1mm, which LG said would make it easy for consumers to handle the device.
Under the hood, the phone will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G SoC which will be paired with 8GB of RAM. For media and storage, the phone will be packed with 128GB onboard storage that can be expanded up to 2TB via a microSD card.
In the imaging department, LG Velvet will sport a “raindrop design” on its back that features a triple camera setup that includes a 48-megapixel main primary lens, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, this phone will have a 16-megapixel sensor that sits inside the notch. According to LG, the cameras support ASMR recording to provide consumers with better sound quality when recording videos.
Apart from this, LG will be fuelled by a 4,300mAh battery. Connectivity options on the phone include 5G, WiFi 6, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. LG also mentioned that the upcoming Velvet phone will also have “stereo speakers” that balance sound along with artificial intelligence software that controls the volume and optimizes the sound. In terms of accessories, a dual-screen and stylus will be available, however, they will be sold separately.
The flagship device will be available for purchase in South Korea on May 15. As of now, pricing details are still not shared by the company which we expect to hear on the launch event of LG Velvet. The phone will be launched via an online event on May 7. So, don’t forget to visit us to get in-depth detail of the phone and its pricing.
