LG VELVET with Snapdragon 765, curved design, Raindrop triple rear cameras to be announced on May 7

LG has finally confirmed its VELVET smartphone in an online event in Korea on May 7th before it goes on sale mid-May. The company posted a  15-second video invitation that visually shows the colours of the phone using four colour drops highlighting the ‘waterdrop camera’.

The company already confirmed Snapdragon 765 with 5G support, water drop notch, 3D arc design where the edges of the display and rear are symmetrically curved and “Raindrop” camera.

LG already said that the name “velvet” is intended to evoke images of lustrous smoothness and premium softness, two key characteristics of the new phone. On the upper-left corner of the back there are three cameras and an LED flash in descending order by size that is similar to falling raindrops.  The phone has less sharp edges and angles that makes the phone pleasing to touch and look.

The LG Velvet comes in Aurora White, Aurora Gray, Aurora Green, and Illusion Sunset colours. We should know the price when it goes official in a couple of weeks.
