The LG Velvet is coming to Europe, North America, and other regions soon

After LG teased the device for several weeks, the LG Velvet was finally announced last month. The device grabbed a lot of attention initially for marking a pretty drastic design shift for LG. It also signified the company’s possible shift away on flagship phones as it features the upper mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC. Today, LG announced wider availability for the Velvet.

The LG Velvet is currently only available in South Korea, but it will soon be coming to Europe and North America. Specifically, it will be coming to Germany, Italy, Spain, Hungary, and Poland in June. North America, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America will get it “in the weeks ahead.”

To recap the LG Velvet, it features a very simple design. Like the Galaxy A71 5G, it gets 5G support from the Snapdragon X52 modem in the Snapdragon 765G SoC. Other specifications include a 6.8-inch OLED display, triple rear cameras, 6GB of RAM, a 4,300mAh battery, microSD card slot, a headphone jack, stylus support, and LG’s Dual Screen accessory. Pricing for these new regions has not been revealed, but it should be around $700.
