It's apparently LG's first phone lineup focusing mostly on design. Personally it looks like an Xperia, Note10, and a Chinese phone thrown in a blender with a little bit of Lumia mixed in.

Thoughts? Should HMD introduce a similar lineup as well? I would LOVE to see the Lumia design make a comeback...

This one's from Feng Feng at Behance:

Pretty, isn't it?

    It's always nice when companies try to play with the design to develop something unique.

    I like this SonLG phone, except for the front camera // notch. It's ugly dot there. Using a dewdrop like cutout is still more visually appealing than this straight dot.

    Reminds me more of Nokia fabula in some ways. "Life'sGoodSoNokia". The back of the phone looks like the front of the fabula design Nokias but LG curved the corners (Lumia 925 like). The back of the phone looks a bit tooo plain to look at. There's no WOW factor in the rear design. The camera setup looks more like old Sony phones. The front looks ugly because of that notch. I am doubtful of those thin side bezels. We will find out once the real device is launched.

    Here's the one I created maybe two years ago. The entire black portion at the front surrounding the display of Lumia 1020 now becomes a display. This is an old edit so ignore the front camera, earpiece and branding. To make it more 2020ish the bezels can be reduces from the top and bottom.

    Also, ignore that camera design. I made it when leaks of Nokia 9 PureView had started appearing.😅

    Nice work @Kartik Gada ! Better than Feng Feng's in my opinion.

    The LG Velvet looks nice and I think it's worth any company making a design-led product as there's definitely a market for that, so HMD should give it a shot. But they'll have to change the colours - I don't think the current colour palette looks snazzy enough, maybe some copper or metallic orange is needed.... 😉

    Cheers 🙂

    If the phone is not made of metal than I want it to be in pastel colours. If it is glass then it should be frosted with pastels. If it is metal they need to think of newer shades that give metallic feel. Additionally, all these should have some kind of texture which should be different and unique.

    They really need to make a design statement and all their products from top to bottom should follow the same design/idea/concept in some way.

    Thankyou for the kind words. The concept is very old and now I feel the front camera, proximity sensor are a big distraction. 😅
