The LG Velvet, a polished, midrange 5G phone that first launched in South Korea, is coming to the US on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. The new device, which will be priced starting at $599, will hit AT&T first and be available online at the carrier starting on July 22 before arriving in stores on Aug. 7.
Verizon and T-Mobile customers will be able to nab LG's latest as well, though neither carrier has yet announced pricing or availability information. LG says it will hit both "later this summer."
Compared to other premium 5G phones, such as the $1,000 , the LG Velvet is more affordable. But it still has a high-end look, a headphone jack and a sizable 6.8-inch display. Its closest rivals are the OnePlus 8, the and the Motorola Edge -- all of which also offer 5G connectivity, triple rear cameras and comparable hardware.
