LG V60 ThinQ 5G has finally been launched after one too many leaks and renders. The smartphone borrows the design from its predecessor the V50 ThinQ and blends it with the LG G8X ThinQ so as to mimic the foldables we have in the market. Essentially, the V60 ThinQ 5G is a single-screen smartphone with some top-notch specifications – which are on par with rival flagships – but what makes it interesting is the second screen that can be attached to it via a case. You get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor under the hood, in addition to a notched OLED display and a Google Assistant button. The smartphone will be made available in the US, Canada, Europe, and some Asian markets next month. Pricing will be announced at the same time.
Much like its predecessor, the LG V60 ThinQ is the company’s non-attempt to play safe – the design is similar. The LG V60 ThinQ 5G has a blend of metal and glass with chamfered edges. It comes in Classy Black and Classy White colours. The smartphone comes with a 6.8-inch FHD+ pOLED waterdrop-notch display, contrary to the QHD+ display on the V50 ThinQ. It also does not compete with its rivals that have higher refresh rates on the display – LG V60 ThinQ has a 60Hz display – but it has HDR10+ support. The aspect ratio has, however, been changed to 20.5:9. LG V50 ThinQ also has an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The LG V60 ThinQ 5G is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory. You can expand the storage via microSD card by up to 2TB. The smartphone supports 5G networks, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem. It also has the Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+, which ensures fast charging on the 5000mAh battery under the hood. There is wireless charging available as well. The smartphone runs Android 10 with the company’s skin on top and has features such as 3D Sound Engine, LG Pay, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DC, and four-channel microphones.
There is a 64-megapixel f/1.8 main sensor, a 13-megapixel f/1.9 super-wide-angle sensor with a field-of-view of 117 degrees, and a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor on the LG V60 ThinQ 5G. LG is offering 2x optical zoom on the cameras. For selfies, the LG V60 ThinQ houses a 10-megapixel sensor inside the notch on the display. The cameras are capable of recording 8K videos and offer HDR10+ to the videos. LG has not done away with the 3.5mm Hi-Fi headphone jack on the V60 ThinQ 5G while all its rivals have bidden farewell to it. The smartphone also has stereo speakers and comes with a USB-C 3.1 port as well.
