The LG Velvet has support for a Wacom stylus and it comes pre-loaded with a Nebo note-taking app that converts your handwriting to text. The 'Stylus Pen' as well as the 'LG Dual Screen' accessories are sold separately.
The device packs an ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) recording mode, which maximizes the sensitivity of the two high-performance microphones in order to capture more vivid sound during video shooting.In addition, a steady cam mode uses AI to compensate for your hand shaking when you’re holding the phone while recording. It also features speed controls for timelapse recording and voice focus to adjust out-of-focus audio recording while shooting a video.
