LG Officially Reveals Price Of The Mid-Range Velvet Smartphone Online
LG has revealed the price of the Velvet mid-range smartphone in South Korea after several weeks of speculations and announcements. Since it had been discovered to be in the pipeline, tech enthusiasts have been following the device keenly.
One of the major reasons why people are interested in the LG Velvet was that it was rumoured to be coming at an affordable price while bringing high-end specifications. Thus, it would give the best of both worlds.
The launch had been at a virtual event in South Korea on 6th May 2020, but the company says that it would make an English language announcement later in May.
At its launch, LG revealed the price for the Velvet (the last detail that had not been released before that day). According to the makers, the LG Velvet will cost about $700 in South Korea.
However, there is no information yet to ascertain if the price will be the same for international markets. Likely, it will not be. This is because, generally, smartphones are sold cheaper in their home country than abroad.
