LG Velvet 4G edition will arrive soon with Snapdragon 845 and 6GB RAM
It is worth to mention that recently, LG has presented its new Velvet smartphone last month. The Velvet model stands out from other devices by its simple and good looking design. But the good impression was spoiled by the high price, which Koreans want to fix by releasing a version without a 5G modem.
Recall: the basic version of LG Velvet has a Snapdragon 765 processor on board, which has an integrated 5G modem. However, as not everyone will be able to connect to the new generation of networks, LG decided to launch a 4G LTE edition. To this end, the newer processor was abandoned in favor of a SoC of two years ago.
Yes, LG Velvet will arrive with Snapdragon 845, which is the chipset that was present in the flagships of 2018. It has similar capabilities to the mid-range Snapdragon 765 SoC but has one big advantage. It is noticeably cheaper to buy. In this way, LG can significantly reduce the price of this version of the smartphone.
