LG is not releasing the Velvet 2 Pro to the public, but it has sold up to 3,000 units to its South Korean employees for equivalent to under US$200. Unsurprisingly, hands-on photos and videos showcasing the device have appeared online, as you can see below. According to posts on the Naver Blog, LG has been generous with its bundled accessories, which includes two 25 W chargers, two silicone cases, a pair of 3.5 mm headphones, and a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm jack adapter.
The front of the Velvet 2 Pro is nothing to write home about, in our opinion. LG has equipped the device with a punch-hole display, which is only a moderate improvement on the notches it used in the Velvet and V60 ThinQ. Similarly, the back of the Velvet 2 Pro resembles its predecessor, albeit with larger camera housings.
However, the Velvet 2 Pro has unusual-looking buttons, as one photo shows. LG has positioned these flush with the Velvet 2 Pro's chassis, giving it a button-less look. Accordingly, LG has added UI elements to remind you where the buttons are. You can watch a full unboxing video below, which also goes through the Velvet 2 Pro's software. Please note that this video is in Korean, and there are no English subtitles.
