LG Velvet now official in South Korea

Reimagining its flagship smartphone line

LG’s newest flagship phone, the LG Velvet, is now official, and it packs some neat features for avid users and creative professionals alike.

Ditching its once-popular G-series, the company has put its efforts towards a new phone called the LG Velvet with creative-focused features and phone-wide redesigns. The phone now sports a new design with its triple rear cameras designed to look like falling raindrops. There’s also a 6.8-inch display upfront that curves to the sides, with a U-shaped notch for the selfie camera. A 4,300mAh battery with fast charging via USB Type-C is also present.

The Velvet is clearly for creatives with its stylus support, not to mention that it ships out of the box with a Wacom stylus. The device is said to support up to 4,096 pen pressure for more optimal handwriting. Unfortunately, you’ll have to purchase that separately.

There’s also support for 5G and has features present in its phone since the G6 such as IP68 dust and water resistance rating, as well as MIL-STD 810G toughness certification.
