It seems LG has dropped all pretense of keeping its upcoming premium mid-ranger, the Velvet, under wraps until its May 2020 launch. It has been spotted in one of this OEM's physical stores in South Korea. This new leak may confirm a build quality to match its looks, and also how it looks with its Dual Screen cover.

The LG Velvet, a novel phone to be launched on May 7, 2020, has surfaced prior to this event. It has been spotted live in a brick-and-mortar store in South Korea. One of its patrons has snapped several photos of the device in question, which were then uploaded to a forum on the entertainment website Naver.com.

This user has also logged some observations on the Velvet's apparently high build quality and appealing finish along with these images. Then again, this new leak does not reveal anything new about this phone, only serving to re-affirm earlier reports on its specs, most of which have been corroborated by LG itself.

On the other hand, they do at least show how 2 of this new phone's colorways may look in real life. In addition, the Velvet's Dual Screen accessory is also shown in 1 of the images, revealing that this case has a waterdrop-notched second display that mirrors that of the actual device. However, no hint of either product's price is given in this new set of snaps.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
