LG have taken a lesser-known path and launched two premium but eccentric smartphones, namely: the LG Wing and the LG Velvet. LG Velvet is available now whereas the LG Wing will sell from next week.
We’ve written about the LG Wing which is a unique 5G smartphone, unlike any other in the market, primarily because it consists of the ‘Swivel Mode’ where the entire 6.8” front FHD+ screen rotates by 90 degrees, thereby revealing a new 3.9” G-OLED screen at the bottom which unveils new possibilities and enables seamless multi-tasking as well. It is priced at Rs. 69,990. You can read more about the LG Wing here.
The LG Velvet is also an impressive dual-screened smartphone that boasts of two 6.8” FHD+ P-OLED screens. The 4G phone is equipped with a free stop hinge, that allows users to ‘fold it like a laptop, use it in stand mode or do a full 360° flip and place it in tent mode for a versatile viewing experience’. The second screen can be bought as an accessory and the phone is available with a single screen as well.
The LG Velvet is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with a 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage space which is expandable to 2TB through microSD card. The phone runs on the Q OS which is built on Android 10 and has a 4300mAh battery. The LG Velvet sports a three camera setup in the rear with a main 48MP f/1.8 camera, an 8MP f/2.2 wide lens, and a 5MP f/2.4 depth sensor. It also has a 16MP f/1.9 front camera.
The LG Velvet weighs just 180g and in addition to an in-display fingerprint sensor, it also has features such as the Google Lens, Google Assistant, Stereo Speaker, LG 3D sound engine, LG Pay, FM Radio, and the Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ technology. The LG Velvet supports HDR10 and is also IP68 rated i.e. it is water and dust resistant.
The LG Velvet (single screen) is priced at Rs. 36,990 and the second screen can be purchased for Rs. 13,000 bringing the total cost of the bundle to Rs. 49,990.
