LG Velvet Series Design is Official
The video, which is in Korean, shows off the design language of this upcoming mid-range smartphone. The video also confirms that the Velvet series will come equipped with Snapdragon 765 Mobile Platform from Qualcomm. This is not particularly about specifications but rather about design. LG smartphones had reached an end where every device had begun to look similar. Even the distinction between G-series and V-series was hard to figure out.

So, LG is answering those critics with a new design language. LG Velvet will come in four colors: white, black, red and green. It is also clear that the back is using glass. Like other smartphone makers, the glass seems to reflect light. The big selling point will be the form factor, which allows for a slim device. The contoured shape and chamfered edges make for a nice looking smartphone. The LG Velvet also features thin bezels surrounding the display and seems to sport a waterdrop notch.

There is not much to takeaway from this video but the 3.5mm headphone seems to have been retained by the company. With Velvet, LG is taking another bold step to challenge the Chinese smartphone makers. It has premium design, as confirmed in this video, and mid-range specifications. This should allow for a competitive device nonetheless. However, LG will need to get the price right in order to put the device in the hands of consumers.
