Specifications about LG G9 ThinQ
LG has finally killed off its G series lineup, and is replacing what would have been the G9 ThinQ with an entirely new phone. The LG Velvet is LG’s latest attempt at getting the world’s attention, but how effective a gambit it will be, remains to be seen.
The LG Velvet sports a 6.8-inch P-OLED display. It’s a super-long phone, too, as it uses a 20.5:9 aspect ratio. Like LG’s flagship V60, it’s a FHD+ 60 Hz panel, which is rather disappointing. A fingerprint reader is baked into the display.
Under the hood is a Snapdragon 765, not a Snapdragon 765G like we’ve seen on most phones. The difference in performance is unlikely to be substantial either way. RAM clocks in at 8 GB, while storage sits at 128 GB of UFS 2.1-type. There’s expandable storage, however, as is typical with LG phones.
The main camera is a 48 MP sensor—likely a Sony IMX586— with OIS. It’s joined by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a 5 MP depth sensor. Like the LG V60 ThinQ, there’s no telephoto camera. The selfie camera is a 16 MP shooter housed within a waterdrop notch.
Also like the V60 ThinQ, the LG Velvet supports stylus usage. It gets its power from a 4300 mAh battery. There’s support for wireless charging, and an official IP68 rating. Interestingly, though, there’s no mention of a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, even though the product page goes through the hassle of highlighting aptX support. We doubt LG has kept its revered Quad-DAC on the Velvet; it wouldn’t be the first time either, as the LG G8S also missed it. Thankfully, LG still maintains an 810G rating for the Velvet.
The LG Velvet carries an MSP of 899,800 KRW($734.23), although word on the grapevine claims buyers may be eligible for a 50% rebate if it’s returned after two years of usage. Hardly useful, we must say.
According to the source, the G9 will be quite a bit bigger than the G8. We’re not sure how that will be received by LG fans, as the G-series has traditionally offered devices with smaller physical footprints than the V-series. The leak touts the G9 to measure in at 6.7″ to 6.9″. That’s massive. The G8 is just 6.1″, for example. The V40 ThinQ and V50 ThinQ are both just 6.4″ phones too, so the G9 would be a leap in size.

The listed dimensions of the phone make that jump even more obvious, as the G9 is said to have a length of 169.4mm, making it 18mm longer than its predecessor.
The back of the G9 plays host to a horizontally aligned quad-rear camera setup. We expect the traditional triple-lens configuration and, perhaps, a ToF sensor to complete the lineup. LG has forsaken the rear capacitive sensor here, too, which means we’ll be getting an under-display reader at the front.
Speaking of the front of the phone, gone is the huge rectangular notch from the G8, V40, and V50. In place of that is a smaller, teardrop notch. That, of course, means that LG has done away with secondary front-facing sensors ultra-wide-angle selfie camera, ToF, etc.
Thankfully, though, the 3.5mm headphone jack makes an appearance on the G9, likely powered by the OEM’s renowned Hi-Fi Quad DAC. LG knows its a major selling point of its phones and will be keeping the feature for one more generation at least.
