LG Shows a Little More Velvet in New Video
LG has released a new teaser video for its next major phone, the Velvet. The video confirms several color options, and that the phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 chipset with 5G. The video shows the phone in white, black, dark green, and a color-shifting purple/pink/gold design with a gold metal frame. LG has been slowly teasing the new phone for several weeks. Previously, LG had revealed the phone's name, and shown design sketches. The new video provides a much clearer look at the Velvet.
