Original article: The Korean manufacturer is still not ready to give up its smart device business and is planning a renewed attack with a new brand that has inherited the G series
LG manufactures Smartphones Worthy and interesting in its flagship series, but even that does not help its businesses in the field to continue to shuffle - and this can be evidenced by the fact that the competitive V60 ThinQ that the market two months ago can still not be purchased in any store in Israel. However, surrender is not an option for this veteran actress, at least at this point, and it seems that the current plan of action is to start anew with a different approach.
A video uploaded on Korea's official YouTube channel shows us half a minute of the smartphoneLG Velvet yet to be officially announced - a new device destined to be unveiled on May 7 and be the successor to the company's G series of devices, which began at the beginning of the decade under the Optimus G brand.
The updated design includes a square body with rounded cladding on the sides both front and back - the display panel offers rounded edges (next to a slightly old-fashioned 'drop' recess for the selfie camera) and also the back color cladding curves at the edges and reveals a bit of the metal frame. There’s also a 3.5mm slot for headphones to our delight, and a triangular rear photo array that is symmetrically arranged (along with the flash) on the top left. This is a clean and likable design that can definitely be considered an improvement over the company's current visual language that we last saw inLG G8s andLG G8X last year.
The video reveals four different shades in which the Velvet will be offered to consumers (white, black, green and orange-red-purple in a combined gradient), as well as confirming the expected use of Qualcomm's octagonal Snapdragon 765 - with 5G connectivity support then reduced performance compared to The leading Snapdragon 865, which probably indicates that we see lower pricing than that of the flagship models from home סמסונג, Dark, Motorola, Sony andHuawei.
Reports coming to us from South Korea add more detail to our expected technical data, with 8GB dynamic memory, 128GB built-in storage, stereo speakers (and perhaps the company's familiar Quad DAC technology), built-in fingerprint scanner under the display panel, camera 16 megapixel selfie, 48 megapixel head rear sensor סמסונג Plus an 8-megapixel secondary sensor for wide-angle photography and an additional 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor, a built-in 4,300mAh battery with wired and wireless charging - and IP68 protection from water and dust plus MIL-STD-810G standard for shock and fall resistance that are familiar to us. of LG.
The size of the display panel is not yet known for sure, but an expected thickness of 74 millimeters plus a length of 167.1 millimeters indicates the use of a relatively large display of 6.5 inches or more - although a weight of 180 grams and a thickness of less than 8 millimeters are definitely good news. Especially when you take into account the unique military resilience we mentioned in the previous paragraph.
In Korea it is estimated that LG Offer the Velvet for sale for $ 900,000, which is $ 732 and $ 2,580 in direct conversion. How much would you expect to see this device sold in Israel, if any? Let's talk about it in the comments.
updating: New reports tell us that the Velvet will offer a large 6.8-inch screen, a 4,300mAh battery that will not prevent it from boasting a profile with a thickness of less than 7 millimeters (contrary to what was reported earlier), a 48-megapixel main photo sensor - and additions of Cover with secondary screen and also a dedicated touch pen which will be marketed separately.
