LG’s Velvet will be available in the US starting tomorrow, July 22nd, following its launch in South Korea and several European countries. The midrange phone will debut online at AT&T with support for its 5G network, costing $20 per month for 30 months (totaling $600). For a limited time, the carrier is offering the phone for half that monthly cost if you buy one on an installment plan with a new line of service. AT&T will carry the Velvet in stores starting on August 7th.
T-Mobile and Verizon will support it later this summer. LG noted in its press release that the Velvet is compatible with Verizon’s mmWave ultrawide band 5G network as well as its sub-600Hz network, which Verizon currently plans to have ready later this year.
