LG recently made a splash with the unveiling of its new Velvet series of 5G-enabled phones. Initially slated for release in the U.S. and a few other markets, the sub-premium flagship devices are now being made available to Canadian customers as well, according to an official press release.

Starting today, customers in Canada can pre-order the device from and at participating carriers. LG says the Velvet will be available from the following retailers: Bell, Eastlink, Fido, Freedom Mobile, Koodo, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus, Videotron, Virgin, Best Buy, TBooth, Wireless Etc. (Costco), The Mobile Shop, The Source, Visions, Wal-Mart, Wireless Wave, WOW Mobile, and Xplore Mobile. Canadian customers who pre-order will receive a $200 Visa gift card and a pair of LG Tone Free (FN6) wireless earbuds, while supplies last.

Alex Dobie recently reviewed the LG Velvet for Android Central and gave it a mediocre grade thanks to some initial quirks with its camera processing. But if you're someone who is clamoring for a fresh new look from LG, who is excited by the Dual Screen case option, and who wants good battery and a headphone jack, then this is a great option to consider.
