Earlier this year, in May, the South Korean LG released the LG Velvet smartphone. It sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip. As you should know, the latter supports 5G network. Today, on October 28, 91Mobile reported that the new version of the LG Velvet was unveiled in India.
LG Velvet Indian Version Specs
Surprisingly, the Indian version of LG Velvet doesn’t come with the Snapdragon 765G processor. Instead, it is using Qualcomm’s 2018 flagship Snapdragon 845 processor. A couple of years ago, there was no equal to this chip. That time’s flagship phones were packed with the Snapdragon 845. Among them, we can mention the Xiaomi Mi 8, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, OPPO Find X, VIVO NEX, etc.
Anyway, we can’t say what is the main reason that this handset comes with an outdated chip, but one thing is clear – the new LG Velvet will yield the original model a lot.
