After weeks of teasers, leaks, and announcements, LG has finally officially unveiled its newest phone, the Velvet.
Since there have been many earlier published details about the new device, the big news is that it's finally going on sale, at least in South Korea. LG is expected to share details about the international launch later this month.
As previously announced, the stylish mid-range phone has a Snapdragon 765 processor, a 6.8-inch OLED display and a 4,300 mAh battery with fast and wireless charging support. Inside there is 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of permanent memory, and on the body there is a switch for the photoflash and the now scarce 3.5 mm headphone jack.
One of his most interesting tendrils in the appearance of the phone, and LG really loves original solutions, this is the "rain drop" style camera design. The triple camera array includes a main camera with a 48-megapixel sensor, as well as an extra-wide 8-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. On the front is a 16-megapixel camera.
LG has yet to announce pricing for the device outside of South Korea, although the official launch gives an idea of what to expect.
Most likely the price at the start of sales will be around $700, which is certainly at the upper end of the price range for a mid-range phone.
The English-enabled phone is scheduled to premiere in the coming weeks, which means a release in the U.S. and Europe is likely not far off.
