Following the closure of LG’s cell phone division, discovered that the organization had been gearing up to release two additional gadgets, one of which is a successor to the LG Velvet. They’re both just accessible for LG employees to purchase, however the LG Velvet 2 Pro (which just had 3000 units) is currently already in the possession of YouTubers.
Korean YouTuber ITSub (H/T @FrontTron on Twitter) got their hands on the Velvet 2 Pro at a price equivalent to $175.94 at current exchange rates, making this an unfathomable cost to performance ratio. It makes sense however, as this gadget was obviously offered to representatives at a price some place in the ballpark of $176. While resale was restricted, realistically it was inescapable that somebody planned to get their hands on it who could show it off to the general public.
The LG Velvet 2 is a flagship cell phone completely, packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, a 6.8-inch FHD+ OLED 120Hz panel, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 4,500 mAh battery. It bears a strong resemblance to the original Velvet and obviously follows a comparable design language to the LG Wing too. The Velvet 2 Pro won’t get much in the method of software support and is offered to representatives pretty much with no guarantees.
However much individuals wanted to laugh at LG’s disappointments, it’s pitiful that things went the manner in which they accomplished for the organization. Their phones were creative and packed loaded with special features, and gadgets like the Wing have never been attempted by competitors. LG consistently attempted to focus on something other than what’s expected, similar to the dual screens of the G8X ThinQ, or the quad DAC of the V30. Losing a competitor that can push different organizations to accomplish more is never acceptable, and the LG Velvet 2 Pro so far appears as though it might have been perhaps the best gadget at any point released by LG. Despite the fact that ITSub’s video is in Korean, it’s an interesting watch on the off chance that you want to perceive what might have been.
