LG Velvet goes on sale in Italy for €649 with pre-order benefits of up to €400

The LG Velvet was announced last month with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC and stylus support. This phone is significant because it marks a shift for LG, turning around the focus from the spec sheet to the design and greater general availability of the phone. The idea with the LG Velvet is to bring a good experience to a greater number of people, a strategy that makes sense seeing how 5G has made flagships very expensive this year. LG recently announced wider availability for the device, indicating that the phone is coming to more international markets. Today, the LG Velvet has launched in Italy, coming in at a price of €649, giving us the first pricing information for the product.
