We expect the formal announcement of the LG Velvet to happen on May 7, which is just a few days from now. However, a YouTube channel published a video today that shows the new flagship smartphone from pretty much every angle.
The video, which weâ€™ve embedded above, is unlike most early hands-on YouTube fodder in that it doesnâ€™t have 20 seconds of low-light portrait mode footage of the phone. Instead, weâ€™re treated to bright, long shots of the LG Velvet in multiple colorways. We even get a look at the official specs sheet (in Korean) and see the phone in use.
We also see some sort of stylus that looks quite a bit like the Apple Pencil. Itâ€™s unclear if this is a product LG will launch with the Velvet or if itâ€™s a Korea-exclusive product weâ€™ve just never seen before. Either way, the person operating the camera in the video uses the stylus on the Velvet for a bit.
Overall, the video makes the LG Velvet seem like a real flagship phone. Itâ€™s got a unique design, some great colors, a good display, a unique camera system, and premium specs.
As mentioned earlier, we expect the LG Velvet to officially land on May 7. Weâ€™ll find out everything we need to know about the phone then, including how much it will cost, when youâ€™ll be able to get it, and where it will land throughout the world.
