With the OnePlus Eight proving to be fairly a soar over earlier OnePlus telephones by way of specs and value, it is left a spot within the ‘sturdy specs at a mid-range value’ part of the market the corporate as soon as occupied – and a brand new leak means that hole could possibly be crammed by the upcoming LG Velvet.
This data comes from Korean discussion board web site ‘Meeco‘ the place a person posted a screenshot of a lineup of the telephones, full with most of the key specs.
It is not clear who the leaker is, or the place the data was sourced from, however there are some shade variants on present right here that we have not seen in LG’s personal teases, and which look credible – though as with all leaks we might advocate taking this one with a pinch of salt.
The leak suggests the LG Velvet can have the mid-range Snapdragon 765G chipset, which will not return quick processing speeds just like the top-end 865 within the OnePlus 8, though individuals who do not want the quickest speeds could be unlikely to note. It appears the cellphone is ready to be a 5G system too.
The leak additionally suggests the chipset will likely be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, which might a reasonably normal setup for a mid-range system. In keeping with the leak, there is a 4,300mAh battery, which once more could be a reasonably normal spec.
Apparently the cameras will likely be a 48MP foremost snapper, joined by a 5MP depth sensor and a 3rd, 8MP, digicam, though it isn’t clear if this has a telephoto, ultra-wide angle, macro or another lens, whereas on the entrance there’s mentioned to be a 16MP digicam.
We’re anticipating the cellphone to be priced squarely in mid-range territory – and probably near the £499 (about $640, AU$930) value of the OnePlus 7, which might make it a tempting choice for followers of that cellphone who cannot fairly stretch to the price of the OnePlus 8.
What’s the LG Velvet?
The LG Velvet is reportedly a substitute for the deliberate LG G9, which is claimed to have been scrapped (though it isn’t clear why), and LG is banking on the brand new cellphone being successful.
Its current gadgets have not been notably profitable, and if the Velvet proves to a well-liked inexpensive mid-range system – which leaks, together with this newest one, recommend it might be – it may herald a change within the model’s fortunes.
We all know the cellphone is touchdown on Might 7, and TechRadar will convey you all of the information when that occurs, and we’ll be hoping to get our fingers on the cellphone to evaluate it, so keep tuned.
