LG Velvet is the first phone to take advantage of LG's rebranding initiative. Velvet was announced to be released on May 7 and now the company has confirmed its launch through an official Korean blog post. So, what's new about this phone? We know some detail on its specs due to its official teasers, but now the specs have been confirmed as well. LG velvet features a very minimalistic design. It has a large 6.8-inch OLED FHD+ display with a 20.5:9 aspect ratio. LG called their display Cinema Full vision display.
For the rear-side camera, the company decided to skip the latest trend of adding huge rectangular camera modules as Samsung and iPhone 11 are using. Instead, the camera features a new waterdrop triple camera design, which is inspired by the natural representation of the falling droplets of rain. The three camera lenses are placed vertically stack in descending order of size, with the flash at the bottom of the pile. The phone has display curves at the edges, which are rounded off and give an impression of a bigger display area. LG calls this the 3D arc design, which you may find similar to already existing designs.
LG Velvet rear camera system is pretty much standard and consist of primary, ultra-wide, and depth-sensor lens combination. The front side camera is 16MP and the rear cameras consist of ultra-wide, 8MP ultra-wide-lens, and standard primary camera. LG's phones mostly contain Sony's image sensors, so there's like a Sony IMX586. For video, the LG velvet includes a voice out a feature that can distinguish the ambient and background noises from videos.
The phone is powered by Snapdragon 765. The phone accessory includes a stylus pen that can be bought separately and doesn't come with the phone. To keep the phone running, LG put a 4,300mAh battery that is enough for whole day usage. It also comes with a low-power software algorithm that minimizes any unnecessary power consumption by shutting down background apps, not in use.
