LG Canada has announced that the Velvet 5G is coming to Canada on August 7th.
The Velvet will be available at Bell, Eastlink, Fido, Freedom Mobile, Koodo, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus, Vidéotron, Virgin, Best Buy, TBooth, Wireless Etc. (Costco), The Mobile Shop, The Source, Visions, Wal-Mart, Wireless Wave, WOW Mobile and Xplore Mobile.
If you pre-order the phone between July 16th and August 6th on LG.ca and with participating carriers, you’ll get a $200 CAD Visa gift card and a pair of LG Tone Free wireless earbuds.
A lot of the above retailers don’t have pricing for the Velvet on their sites yet, though on Bell’s website, the Velvet is listed as costing $750. Bell’s no-contract pricing has always been higher than other carriers. As more carrier pricing becomes available, this story will be updated.
The LG Velvet features a 6.8-inch P-OLED panel with a 2,460 x 1,080 pixel resolution. Additionally, the smartphone sports a Snapdragon 765 5G processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.

On the back, the handset features a waterdrop-style triple-camera setup with 48-megapixel primary shooter, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and 5-megapixel depth shooter. Flipping the device to its front, the Velvet sports a 16-megapixel camera and a waterdrop notch.
