The company revealed more than the final design but also key aspects that shape the phone
LG has embarked on a new adventure in hopes of re-imagining the company’s image. For the first time it will not only change the design of smartphones but also their designations. These changes will be materialized for the first time in LG Velvet, the next generation smartphone.
But LG Velvet resembles more of an LG attempt to capture the latest trends than a new design philosophy. What LG advertises as a “3D Arc” design is something other manufacturers have been doing for a long time, bending the screens toward the edges and creating an ergonomic design.
On the other side, the Waterdrop camera is a nice visual element. The published video shows in which segment LG Velvet will be placed. The company calls it “mass premium” which means it can be mid-range with processors like the Snapdragon 765 and 5G.
What this phone will have unlike today’s flagships is the 3.5mm headphone port.
Overall LG Velvet will be a charming smartphone for the masses but will it be enough to change the fate of the company in this industry?
