In July, LG announced that is Velvet was coming to the United States on all major carriers, except it promised the T-Mobile model for later in the summer. It's here now, and what's interesting is that this is actually a different phone than what everyone else is offering.
Rather than using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G like we're seeing in the unlocked, Verizon, and AT&T models, the T-Mobile SKU actually has a MediaTek processor, the Dimensity 800. It's the first Media-Tek-powered 5G phone to be launched in the United States, supporting T-Mobile's 600MHz low-band frequency and the 2.5GHz mid-band frequency that it got from Sprint.
T-Mobile is also boasting that it has the lowest price for an LG Velvet at $588, and it comes in Aurora Gray and Pink White. The rest of the specs are the same, with 128GB of internal storage, 6GB RAM, and a triple-lens camera system with a 48MP main sensor. It also includes the raindrop camera design that LG boasted in the Velvet, where it tried to think outside the box in terms of design.
Update: While T-Mobile's website says that the handset includes a MediaTek Dimensity 800, T-Mobile has confirmed to us that it actually has a Dimensity 1000C, a new chipset that was announced today.
