We get more live images of the upcoming LG Velvet.

A user of Naver (a South Korean site) posted photos and a video of the phone, giving us our clearest look at it yet, and listing numerous specs. That is a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 5MP depth sensor. Photos of the LG Velvet were taken in a Korean store and uploaded onto an internet forum, giving the rest of the world ample opportunity to pore over the full specifications. Storage space in this device could be taken up to 2TB via MicroSD card, so don't worry about running out of space.

Besides the lovely "raindrop" camera arrangement, we also get to see the white and grey color versions, and the teardrop notch housing the front camera.

While we would always take leaks with a pinch of salt, this is about as credible and convincing as they get, and completely lines up with what LG itself has already shown, so we'd say it's nearly certainly the real deal.

As reported by GSMArena, LG Velvet is powered by a 4,300 mAh battery, which can be charged wirelessly. It also has an IP68 water and dust resistance certification, AI-powered stereo loudspeakers and gimbal-like video stabilization.

And we'll know very soon, as the LG Velvet is being unveiled on Thursday May 7 - although other than pricing and availability we're not sure what LG has left to unveil.

A bunch of teasers, leaks and even a semi-official announcement already previewed the LG Velvet specs and the new "raindrop" rear-facing camera with three imaging sensors and an LED flash arranged vertically in descending order by size and a "symmetrical, flowing form factor" described as "both pleasing to the eye and pleasing to touch".
