LG Velvet product description

The LG Velvet is a totally new designed smartphone from LG. The device saw the light of day on May 7th and it has a particularly exciting appearance. For example, it has a new design with natural curves and a drop-shaped camera design on the back. It is a 5G phone and comes with a 2nd screen accessory

New design

LG's past smartphones didn't look exciting enough. At least that's what they found at LG itself and that's why they designed the Velvet. A phone with not only an unprecedented high finish but also with an exciting new design. Altho it still looks unmistakeably like a phone. The design of the Velvet is characterised by clean lines, symmetry and a naturally inspired layout. This can be seen in the camera, for example. The lenses and flash are placed in such a way that they look like a drop of water. Nice but we are of course especially curious about what you can do with them.

Video functions for vloggers

The main camera of the Velvet 5G counts 48 megapixels and that's not very high anymore when it came out. Especially in the dark, the Velvet has trouble taking clear pictures. During the day, photos are of a much higher quality. You can also shoot widescreen thanks to an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, or portraits with background blur thanks to the 5MP depth of field camera. There's no telephoto lens to zoom with. Video can be shot in up to 4K and there's an extra-smooth image stabilisation mode called Steady Cam. This works with the slightly less sharp wide-angle lens but is very good at stabilising images. With the 16MP selfie camera you can add stickers and it does Voice Bokeh. This is especially interesting for vloggers. It mutes background noise and amplifies speech

Main LG Velvet specifications

  • New design with 3D Arc Edges
  • 6.8 inch FullVision screen with cinema aspect ratio
  • Triple camera: 48+8+5MP with steady 4K video
  • Waterproof IP68 housing
  • Snapdragon 765G processor with 6GB RAM memory and 5G support
  • 4300 mAh large battery with 25W fast charging and 9W wireless charging

Waterproof 5G phone

The screen of the Velvet 5G measures a fairly large 6.8 inches and has a fairly narrow 20.5:9 ratio. According to LG ideal for watching movies, especially because there are speakers on both sides for stereo sound. LG uses a bright OLED panel which makes colours come into their own. The housing is water and dust resistant (IP68) and should even take a beating. The built-in 4300 mAh battery should last for at least a day, can be recharged quickly with 25W and even runs on wireless charging. LG uses a Snapdragon 765G processor for the Velvet and that's the same as in the OnePlus Nord and the Google Pixel 5. These phones are known to feel smooth, so we assume that the Velvet is too. Moreover, makes it suitable for 5G and so you are already ready for the future.


LG Velvet in the news

LG V70 Rainbow

Never-released LG Rollable and LG V70 seen in photos

Rumours ·

LG's decision to leave the smartphone market was taken rather abruptly it seems. There were still a few phones in development, including a rollable and a new model from the V-series. Today we have photos of these phones that will never be released.

LG has just said quit the smartphone market but already it feels nostalgic talking about it. The fact is that we are going to miss a very important player, one that at least tried to do something new every now and then.

LG Rollable
The LG Rollable (LM-R910N)

This LG Rollable, for example, is something we would loved to try out. We knew LG was working on it, they even showed it once. But it will never reach the stores. The project has been shut down and all we have now are these pictures. The Rollable would certainly have been an asset in the still young foldable market. It has a design we haven't seen before.

LG V70 (Rainbow)

Another device that is going straight to the trash is the LG V70 (ThinQ). We have a picture of its back where we recognise the teardrop-shaped camera layout of the Velvet. The 3 camera modules just protrude a bit more than they do on the LG Velvet

LG V70
And the LG V70

It is unknown what specifications the LG V70 has. LG used the series for some larger models with very high-specs. We can only guess at what the V70 should have been. For now, the LG book is closed; no new phones will be released. However, LG did announce that it will still support existing models from the popular G and V series from 2019 and later with 3 software updates. Some Stylo and K models will get 2 Android updates.

LG Velvet 5g

LG Velvet 5G comes to Europe and the US

Phone news ·

After being launched in South Korea, the LG Velvet will soon be available elsewhere. The phone already appeared on several European websites and an American launch is also expected.

Possibly LG aims at a gradual roll-out of the Velvet along Europe. For the time being we only see the model on the Italian, Spanish, German, Slovakian and Turkish site of LG. It didn't go very well with LG the last couple of years so that might explain a cautious roll-out.

LG Velvet
Soon in a shop near you; the LG Velvet

The LG Velvet was announced as a 5G phone with large 6.8 inch screen, triple camera including a 48 MP sensor and wireless charging. However, LG mainly emphasised its looks during the announcement. For example, the cameras on the back are placed like a falling drop and numerous natural curves are used. The introduction of an extra LG phone would be extra welcome. There are very few LG phones available at the moment. The company has been struggling to find success for some time now. Especially when it comes to the expensive high-end phones, things are not going well at the moment. The Velvet should have a somewhat friendlier price tag. Exactly how much it should cost is still unclear.


Velvet LG

LG's next 5G phone is called "Velvet"

Rumours ·

Sometimes, just sometimes, we think we've unravelled LG's phone strategy. But then the company surprises us and punches us back on our feed. And that's exactly what they've done right now.

Because apparently in Seoul they figured out how to market mobile phones; by giving them a sexy name! Yeah, you read it right. The name of LG's next phone has been announced. No specs, no exciting new design, stunning camera features but a name. The LG Velvet should regain the hearts of consumers worldwide.

LG Velvet

We're laughing about it, and rightly so. If you want to achieve positive headlines, rave reviews and sales success, you have to do more than pure marketing. Innovate, improve, renew. Things we haven't seen so far from LG's new phone strategy. However, LG does promise a 5G phone with a "raindrop shaped camera layout and a design that looks both pleasing to the eye and pleasant to hold". Not things we think you'll win the war with, but who are we to judge? With the LG Velvet, LG is breaking new ground in terms of design. When we will have the Velvet in our hands is still unclear, but we can't wait.

Lowering expectations

And then without sarcasm, it's obviously not going very well with LG's phone division. The G-series is said to have ended and never broke thru. Which is a shame because LG tried very hard and came up with some really cool ideas. So LG moved the LG G2 buttons to the back so that more screen space was created. The LG G3 was one of the first with fast and reliable phase detection autofocus for sharper images. The LG G4 experimented with different materials and the G5 was even partly modular and therefore expandable. Apparently the consumer could not bother it very much, huge sales successes were never achieved.

LG has to go back to the base and build up from there. From something simple and a new design philosophy can be a good fit. We sincerely hope that the phone world can use some stubborn participants.
