The Velvet smartphone will be available on three different platforms

The LG Velvet smartphone really turned out to be quite original in appearance, but quite expensive. Despite the fact that it is based on the Snapdragon 765G SoC, the novelty started on the domestic market at a price of over $ 700. As it turned out, LG understood that the price is not the most competitive, so it decided to release another version. In Europe, you can already buy Velvet 4G for about 490 euros, and this model is based on the SoC Snapdragon 845.

Yes, LG likes to use the old top Qualcomm platforms, but for some it will be even a plus: you do not need to overpay for 5G, and the performance of the Snapdragon 845 is even higher than that of the Snapdragon 765G, albeit slightly.

Moreover, it seems that another modification of the current flagship LG may appear soon. The Google Play Console found a Velvet based on the MediaTek MT6883 SoC, better known as the Dimensity 800. This is a solution of about the same level as the Snapdragon 765G, only the MediaTek platform should be significantly cheaper. However, it is still unclear when such a smartphone will be released and how much it will actually cost.
