LG’s new raindrop camera design will bring a breath of fresh air to its smartphone segment.
Over the years, the designs of LG phones have not changed much and are quite similar to each other, including G7, G8, and V40, V50. Recognizing that, it seems that LG is cherishing an entirely new design language, with many accents and differences compared to the past.
LG has described the design language as “a nod to the natural world with a visual form factor that differs from the industry trend.” Inspired by the shape of the raindrops, the new camera cluster is designed vertically and has a smaller size similar to the water droplets. This design is completely different from the design of a “super huge” camera cluster recently. They also named their design “Raindrop”. Definitely, LG’s new raindrop camera design will bring a breath of fresh air to its smartphone segment.
For the rest, LG says it uses the new 3D Arc design language, including symmetrical curves on the screen and the back of the phone. This design will soon be available on LG products in the near future and promises to blow new wind into the world of phones according to the confirmation of Cha Yong-Duk, head of LG’s design department.
No other details of the phone itself are available, but it sounds like LG will apply this design language throughout its range. “Our upcoming smartphone will draw on the rich history of classic LG designs which have always been distinctive at first touch,” says VP and mobile design lab head Cha Yong-duk in a statement. “This handset will be a first-look at the competitive edge we will be bringing to every LG smartphone going forward.”
South Korean portal Naver said LG will launch a new product phone on May 15 to recreate the success of their iconic Chocolate line. This phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 765 chip along with integrated 5G and a more affordable price. LG is putting great expectations for this design and its upcoming product line.
