LG Velvet goes on sale in the U.S. this week for $599

The LG Velvet was announced back in May and it’s one of the few LG devices that has seen pretty good buzz from the press around it. The company massively changed up the design and put more care into the smaller details, which is something that has been missing in the past. As mentioned last month, the LG Velvet is coming to North America, starting with the U.S. this week.

LG has launched the Velvet in South Korea and a few European countries so far, but starting tomorrow (July 22) it will be available in the U.S. as well. AT&T will have it first, starting tomorrow, but Verizon (as expected) and T-Mobile will be getting it “later this summer.” Pricing starts at $599 and AT&T will have four colors available: Aurora Gray, Aurora Silver, Aurora Red, and Pink White.
