On the camera front, the LG Velvet is loaded with a triple-camera setup with a combination of 48-megapixel primary lens, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.
The phone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G chipset that should hopefully mean it is less expensive than competing phones with the high-end Snapdragon 865.
Starting off with the display, the LG Velvet features a 6.8-inch Cinema Fullvision OLED display with a 20.5:9 aspect ratio.
As of now, LG has not revealed the configuration and pricing for the Velvet. That earmarks the phone as a "mass premium", a.k.a. mid-range handset but the latest leaks about the Velvet's specs and partner accessory could at least increase its appeal among LG fans. Its dimensions are 167.1 x 74 x 7.85 mm, and it weighs 180 grams. Based on the official renders, the display has prominent top and bottom bezels along with a centered notch housing the front camera. From the image that was previously shared, it was seen that the LG Velvet sports a metal-glass design and a water drop-notch that houses the front camera with nearly no bezels on the left and right sides of the display and very thin bezels at the top and bottom.
According to the blog post, videography on the phone is bolstered by a voice-background separation feature that can filter out noise like wind, and more to make the subjects voice clearer. There are Stereo speakers and AI Sound for a better audio listening experience. "The LG Velvet was designed to be clean-cut, with the aim that its external features will create the urge to touch".
LG Velvet will come with a 4,300 mAh battery and 10 W of wireless charging. The phone will be available in four color options: white, grey, green, and "Illusion Sunset", which features warm, bright color gradient. LG Korea posted an invitation and teaser video for the said launch event - a "fashion show that boasts innovative designs" - on the morning of May 7th at 10 AM KT (if it's a global launch, then that would be 9 PM ET on May 6th for those in the U.S.).
Dual screen and stylus pen accessories will be available for the new smartphone, the company added.
