LG hasn’t exactly kept its upcoming LG Velvet phone a secret, announcing the design, name and then the whole phone itself via a video trailer. We’re still not sure when it’s coming out, but it now seems the phone might release alongside an optional dual screen case like you’d find available for the recent LG V60.
That’s according to a report from MySmartPrice, who posted an image of the dual screen’s Korean certification with the model number LM-G905M. This is in line with the rumoured model number for the phone itself, LG-G900N.
It’s a report which should be taken with a pinch of salt, but given that LG included dual screen case options for its last three major phones the V60, G8X and V50, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Velvet also included the option.
LG’s dual screens are cases that are powered via the phone and offer an identical display on the inside of a folding case design, allowing you to use two apps at once, or play games in landscape much like a Nintendo DS. The panel on the V60’s even allows it and the phone to be used with a Wacom pen for Galaxy Note-style stylus input and note taking.
The Velvet will be a departure from previous LG phones with a Snapdragon 765G instead of the high-end 865 and will have a curved edge display and ‘raindrop’ camera array. It shows LG trying to recreate some of the allure around its brand, with the Velvet branding a call back to the days of its LG Chocolate phones.
