LG may have a sleeper hit on its hands the consensus from last weeks poll is that the LG Velvet can have a bright future, though very few people think that the company got the pricing right. KRW 900,000 ($735/680) is what the LG G9 should cost and this is lacking a few too many features to be a G-series device.
And at this point were not sure that people would pay G9 money for an actual G9 (if it ever comes out), LG really needs a win here. And it can have it, but it needs to drop the price.
The rugged (yet sleek) body, roomy AMOLED display, 5G connectivity and optional Dual Screen accessory create a solid foundation for this phone. The 48MP camera with OIS and battery with 30W fast charging are great too, but they are not the best features on the phone.
The Wacom stylus support is unique in LGs lineup and the only proper alternative to Samsungs Note phones. But none of the Notes have a MIL-STD-810G certification, few phones do. These can be the features that propel the Velvet to a successful launch.
However, LG needs to remind itself that it isnt Apple and few would pay $700+ for a phone without a flagship chipset and a run-of-the-mill 1080p 60Hz display.
