Yesterday, we talked about LG launching a new series of smartphones to revamp its positioning in the Android market. Notably, the brand is going to ditch its LG G lineup of smartphones and launch an all-new LG Velvet series of smartphones, which will focus more on looks than performance. The official render video of the first-ever LG Velvet smartphone has already been teased by the company. Today, we were able to spot a new LG case on the Korean NRRA certification authority website, which is believed to be the secondary display of the LG Velvet smartphone. Take a look at the certification and find out what it has in store for us.
Alleged Secondary Display Cover for LG Velvet Certified by Korean NRRA
As seen in the certification image, the LG portable screen cover (with the model number LG LM-G905N) has received the NRRA certification on April 20, 2020, which happens to be today. The model number resonates with the LG-G900N smartphone, which is being rumoured to be the LG Velvet itself. This leads us to believe that the recently certified portable screen cover could be the dual-screen accessory for the LG Velvet.
The rumour mill is rife about the possibility of the LG Velvet making use of a dual-screen accessory. Previous reports suggest that the dual screen accessory will be sold separately and won’t be included in the box the LG Velvet will come with. All of this, however, is a set of rumours as of now, and we would request and suggest our readers to take things with a slight grain of salt as of now.
What’s official is what we are going to talk about now. LG posted a promotional video for the LG Velvet on its Korean YouTube channel. As seen in the images taken from the promotional video, the LG Velvet will feature a triple rear camera setup. The LG Velvet won’t rely on the traditional rectangular/square/circular modules that we are used to seeing lately. It will instead make use of a descending array of cameras, which the company has dubbed as Raindrop Camera. Furthermore, the LG Velvet will feature a symmetrically curved display and rear, which the company is calling a “3D Arc Design”.
At the bottom of the device, the LG Velvet will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, a speaker grille, and a USB Type-C charging port. The Type-C charging port is what will most likely be used to pair the primary display of the LG Velvet with the dual-screen protective case, which has allegedly received the certification today.
Powering the LG Velvet will be an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, which is Qualcomm’s upper mid-range 5G chipset. As far as the battery of the device is concerned, the LG Velvet will likely be fueled by a 4,000mAh battery with support for fast charging.
For now, this is pretty much all the information that we have surrounding the LG Velvet smartphone, but we are sure to receive more intel on the same in the coming days. Whenever we do, we will keep you posted on the same.
