- LG is planning to launch its new flagship on May 15
- The flagship is said to be called the LG Velvet
- Ahead of the launch, key specs and design has leaked online
LG's next flagship, called the LG Velvet, has been shown off by the company in full in a video. Apart from showing off a new modern design, the teaser video also reveals the specs of the smartphone.
The phone has been announced to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 5G chipset and bring with itself a headphone jack. Apart from this, the phone has been shown to bring with itself thin bezels and small teardrop notch on the front, and the triple-lens camera (plus flash) on the back.
As far as the teaser goes, the phone has been shown in white, black, red and green color options, and looks likely to use premium materials for finish. As such, the design of the device could be one of the LG Velvet's main selling points.
The teaser video which is 35 seconds long as is currently available on the company's YouTube page confirms the presence of the 3.5mm jack and Snapdragon 765G on the phone. However, it does not confirm much else.
The LG Velvet could very likely be much like the LG G9, but LG could be scrapping the G naming scheme to give its phones more meaningful names and highlight their core features -- which in this case happens to be the device's velvety design. The phone is tipped for a May 15 launch, so it shouldn't be too long before we finally get to know more about the new LG smartphone.
