LG Velvet price

In a post on its newsroom website, LG revealed the price for LG Velvet to be KRW 899,800 (roughly Rs. 55,700). Presumably, this will be the starting price for the phone that may be available in multiple RAM and storage configurations. However, as mentioned above, there is no information on the Indian pricing as of now so it may or may not cost around the estimated price if and when it comes to the country.

Along with the price, the company also shared that the LG Velvet will go on sale in South Korea starting May 15 with pre-sale starting from May 8 till May 14. LG is also providing prizes to customers who participate in the pre-sale. The company has also worked with three South Korean mobile communication companies for offering discounts on plans, as well as for the pre-sale of the phone. The LG Velvet will be launched on Thursday, May 7 - so we don't have long to wait for all details to emerge.
