Last month, LG announced its plan to introduce a new minimalistic design language for its upcoming Velvet smartphone. The company also showcased the design of the smartphone in late April, giving us a closer look at what the upcoming smartphone looks like.
The LG Velvet features a what it calls a ‘3D arc design’ and has a Waterdrop Camera design at the back. It also features a 6.8-inch Cinema FullVision display with an aspect ratio of 20.5: 9. The smartphone is equipped with a Snapdragon 765 5G processor and is powered by a 4,300mAh battery.
Talking about the camera, LG Velvet packs 48MP (Main) + 8MP (ultra wide) + and 5MP (depth) camera setup organized in such a way that it resembles the falling raindrops. The smartphone also has support for features like Time Lapse and Voice Out Focus. The smartphone is capable of capturing photos at low light, thanks to the quad binning technology, which essentially combines 4 pixels into a single picture in a low-light environment.
