LG Velvet arrived in India today. It is the first smartphone that brings the company’s new design to smartphones. The main changes are the water drop design on the rear cameras and a sleek body. LG Velvet offers flagship features, such as dual-screen accessory support and stylus. But the processor used on LG Velvet is not the fastest on the market. It uses a two-year-old Snapdragon 845 processor to make up for the lack of Snapdragon 765G originally used on the top variant. LG has chosen not to launch the 5G variant of Velvet in India.
