Although the LG Velvet announcement is now just a few days away, the company is today introducing a new mid-range phone to South Africa.
Dubbed the LG K61, the phone was first announced in February and features a 6.53-inch display with a 2340×1080 resolution.

There’s also a punch hole selfie camera — which, for some reason, LG tries really hard to hide in glamour shots — with a 16MP sensor.
At the rear, the phone sports four snappers: a 48MP primary, an 8MP wide-angle, a 2MP macro and a 5MP depth sensor.
It’s powered by a Mediatek Helio P35 chipset with 4GB of RAM and a choice of 64 or 128GB of internal storage. There’s also a microSD card slot.
Other notable features includes a Google Assistant button, a headphone jack, NFC, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a USB-C port for data and charging.
The LG K61 is powered by a 4000mAh battery and runs on Android 9.0 Pie at launch.
It’ll be available to purchase from Vodacom from 8 May, and will roll out to Cell C and MTN in the “following weeks”.
