Rather focused on the launch of new midrangers than on the biannual launch of new flagships of premium hierarchy, LG surprised many by presenting a new series of flagship devices: the Velvet series. A series that could be its foundation stone as it seems that LG will distribute Velvet UI to other smartphones.
What started as a new series of luxury phones, little by little, it seems that it will be transformed into the main series of LG smartphones. At least, that’s what we can deduce from the new interface updates that other famous devices from the South Korean company receive.
List of LG smartphones that will receive Velvet UI
The LG Velvet was able to debut with a unique design language compared to other LG devices. Its curved side display and the discreet shape of its front notch joined the unique way LG decided to arrange its rear camera lenses: vertically and floating on their own, without a compartment to contain them.
Sony had been doing the same with the design of its rear cameras for years but LG introduced an additional twist: in addition to the aesthetic characteristics that differentiated it from other flagships of the company, the different models of the LG Velvet had a beautiful and personalized exclusive interface.
But at present there are more than the LG Velvet that can be updated to Velvet UI: this interface is also available, at this time, for the LG Q60 , LG Q7 , LG G7 ThinQ , LG G8 ThinQ , LG V40 ThinQ , LG V50 ThinQ and LG V50S ThinQ . And the list will only grow in the days to come.
In the coming days Velvet UI is also expected to arrive on the LG Q51 , LG Q61 and LG V35 ThinQ . You can see that with the exception of a few cheap midrangers , LG seems to be transforming Velvet UI into the official interface of its main premium phones.
LG will distribute Velvet UI to other smartphones of similar hierarchy or premium hierarchy from previous years. Little by little we can see how LG places its Velvet series at the top of its priority scale for mobile devices and thus increases the chances that we will see a new LG Velvet in 2021 with a Snapdragon 775G on board .
