As you may know, OnePlus unveiled a premium mid-range smartphone today. But wait, LG has one of those too. Sure, the Korean company may have already fully presented the Velvet, but today it decided to announce availability details for the US.
The LG Velvet will be out in the States on July 22, aka tomorrow, for $599, from AT&T. T-Mobile and Verizon will both offer it “later this summer”. The Velvet will be offered in Aurora Gray, Aurora Silver, Aurora Red, and Pink White.
Verizon’s model will unsurprisingly support that carrier’s mmWave 5G network, thus being named LG Velvet 5G UW (it’s not the first time we’ve seen this).
LG’s marketing campaign for the Velvet in the US includes Jason Derulo, with additional celebrities lined up for the near future.
The Velvet is LG’s latest attempt to win over the mobile world, by focusing on design and usability and not so much on raw specs. If you’re intrigued, don’t miss our full in-depth review of it, where we also talk about the Dual Screen accessory.
