LG Velvet is all set to be unveiled in Korea on May 7 in an online event. Ahead of the launch event, an alleged LG Velvet specs sheet has surfaced online.
LG hasn’t found much success in the high-end smartphone arena in the last few years, constantly bleeding money as a direct result of a convoluted product portfolio lacking a wow factor, not to mention a clear and practical way of distinguishing itself from the competition.
LG has already shown off the design of its Velvet smartphone. It will feature a punch-hole camera for selfies and a curved body. It looks quite premium and a major leap from LG’s G series.
The company also confirmed that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 chipset with 5G support will power the new LG Velvet. A new leak now reveals the full spec sheet for the upcoming phone.
LG Velvet Specifications
What the company has yet to confirm is the freshly leaked 167.1 x 74 x 7.85mm dimensions and 180 grams weight, which would make the LG Velvet 5G significantly thinner and lighter, as well as slightly shorter and narrower than the 6.8-inch V60 ThinQ.
While the display size is not etched in stone right now, these overall measurements and that small waterdrop-style notch and razor-thin bezels confirmed by LG make us confident the usable screen real estate will circle the 6.7–inch mark.
The extra-tall 21:9 panel is rumored to use high-quality OLED technology and could well match the 2460 x 1080 resolution of the V60 flagship, while the battery will naturally be downgraded from an impressive 5,000mAh capacity to a pretty solid 4,300mAh size.
That’s actually quite impressive when you consider the aforementioned profile and weight of the LG Velvet 5G, not to mention both fast charging and wireless charging features are also expected to be supported.
The smartphone’s triple camera setup will house a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide angle lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. Upfront, the smartphone will house a 16-megapixel selfie camera. Along with the punch-hole camera, LG Velvet will also house an in-display fingerprint sensor.
LG Velvet is also said to pack 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. It will have a microSD card slot for further storage expansion. More details on the LG Velvet include the IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.
It will also support fast wired charging and wireless charging. LG already revealed the color options for Velvet but its official names will be Aurora White, Aurora Green, Aurora Gray, and Illusion Sunset.
LG Velvet will launch in South Korea first but there’s no word on the global availability for the phone as yet.
