The upcoming LG Velvet is an important device for the Korean tech giant. In recent years, LG’s smartphone arm hasn’t delivered the kind of critical or commercial success necessary to stay relevant. A confused lineup of flagships with similar designs and specs despite different names hasn’t helped move the needle, either.
All LG has confirmed up to this point is that the Velvet will carry that chipset silicon that’s less powerful than the 865 CPUs inside other leading Android phones, though it still includes 5G. In fact, in the 765’s case, the 5G modem is integrated into the chip .
Luckily, the same spec sheet that has tipped us off to the phone’s hardware also mentions a module consisting of a 48-megapixel primary shooter, flanked by an 8-MP ultrawide lens and 5-MP depth sensor. Though that doesn’t appear to be the case based on the leaks. The front-facing camera looks to be rated at 16 MP.
But the processor isn’t all we know about. An official-looking spec sheet that’s making the rounds suggests the Velvet will come equipped with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, pack IP68 water resistance and a 4,300-mAh battery. It also claims the Velvet will tip the scales at 6.35 ounces, which would make it a hair lighter than the 6.56-ounce>
