LG Velvet teasers are pouring in abundantly, revealing its key features, specifications, and the design. There have also been major leaks that claim to offer insights into what we can expect from the upcoming smartphone. Now, a fresh piece of information about LG Velvet's wireless charging has emerged, revealing more about the smartphone ahead of its launch scheduled for May 7. The Wireless Power Consortium has listed the LG Velvet on its certification website, confirming the smartphone will indeed have wireless charging support.
A previous leak suggested wireless charging capability of LG Velvet, however, without specifics. The certification website has revealed the LG Velvet will support 10W wireless charging. It is a Power Class 0 receiver, which is usually the standard for up to 30W wireless charging. Since the LG Velvet will be a sub-premium smartphone, 10W is what the company is apparently going for. The listing was put up on the Wireless Power Consortium website on April 27.
Besides, the listing of LG Velvet on the certification website has also confirmed what the smartphone will look like. LG Velvet has been teased in official video clips with its design and full look. The teasers have also confirmed there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC and that the smartphone will feature rainbow-style cameras at the back. The design on the LG Velvet is a major departure from the company's existing premium and sub-premium smartphones -- something LG believes would give it an edge over its rivals' offerings.
A major leak earlier this week claimed there will be a 4300mAh battery with support for wireless charging on the LG Velvet. It further suggested a 48-megapixel main sensor, a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor on the LG Velvet's rear. The triple-camera setup has already been confirmed by LG. in fact, the camera style on the smartphone is considered the biggest change that would tell Velvet and its rivals apart, not only on the basis of specifications but their design. The LG Velvet will have a 16-megapixel front camera, as per the report.
For its pricing, the LG Velvet will cost KRW 899,800 in its home market, per the report. This pricing translates to approximately $730 and Rs 56,000. It is also being said the smartphone will be launched in its home market first. According to the leak, the LG Velvet could debut in stores in mid-May in Korea.
