LG's upcoming Velvet smartphone isn't officially launching until May 7, but the company decided to cut the suspense and reveal its complete specs. 

The specs themselves aren't revolutionary, but they aren't bad either: a 6.8-inch display with a waterdrop notch, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G chipset, a triple, 48/8/5-megapixel rear camera and a 4,300mAh battery. Stereo speakers and AI-enhanced sound, which sets optimal audio quality depending on the content you're listening, are also on board.

LG also emphasizes that the phone is very thin (just 6.8 millimetres) and fairly narrow, at 74.1 millimetres — compare that to the iPhone 11 Pro Max which is 8.1 millimetres thick and 77.8 millimetres wide. The phone is offered in four colors: white, green, grey and sunset.
