LG has already revealed the entire specs and official renders of the LG VELVET 5G phone that is scheduled to debut on May 7 through an online event. The South Korean company is expected to begin the sales of the LG VELVET smartphone on May 15. A Vietnamese leakster has shared live shots of the smartphone ahead of it unveil event.
The live shots seem to showcase the Aurora White and Aurora Grey versions of the LG VELVET smartphone. The rear side of the phone is made out glass. It features the ‘raindrop camera’ setup at the upper-left corner.
The triple setup of the LG VELVET includes a 48-megapixel primary shooter, an ultrawide sensor of 8-megapixel and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The front image shows that waterdrop notch screen of the device. LG has confirmed that it has a massive display of 6.8 inches. The OLED panel offers 20.5:9 aspect ratio and it is integrated with a fingerprint sensor. The display notch houses a 16-megapixel lens.
One of the leaked images reveals the innards of the LG VELVET. A 4,300mAh battery is present inside the device. Apart from fast charging, the handset will carry support for 10W wireless charging. The wireless charging can be seen in the image.
The LG VELVET is a 5G-ready phone that is driven by the Snapdragon 765G chipset. The Android 10 OS coupled with LG’s latest UI will come preloaded on the device. The other features that will be available on the LG VELVET include 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, microSD card slot, 3.5mm audio jack, stereo speakers, NFC, USB-C, Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and dual-SIM support. Aurora Green and Illusion Sunset are the other color variants of the LG VELVET.
LG Velvet – What to expect?
LG’s all-new phone might not be a powerful smartphone as compared to other flagships in the market. But it most certainly will be a stunning looking handset. These days the rear part of the smartphones looks more or less similar. But LG’s Velvet doesn’t take a queue from the existing triple rear camera setup handsets. You can see a unique arrangement of the sensors in a vertical fashion.
The company’s new mass-market smartphone is said to be powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 processor instead of Snapdragon 865. This venture into a premium mid-range could allow the brand to look at things differently. LG will be playing in a new field starting this year. As far as the further specifications are concerned, there’s not much shared by the brand.
The video teases only about its design, where it’s supposed to pack a slim and sleek look. We know how it will look on the rear. Talking about the front, it will be packing a tiny notch design. Plus, there will be a tall boy design, which means to expect a wider aspect ratio as compared to industry-standard these days.
Earlier rumors suggest the LG Velvet will have a 48MP main camera, a 4,000mAh battery, and support LG’s Dual Screen attachment. The screen size will supposedly be between 6.7 to 6.9-inches diagonally, making this a rather large smartphone. We also expect this phone to support 5G network connectivity given Snapdragon 765’s integrated Snapdragon X52 modem is 5G-capable. We’ll know more next month hopefully.
