LG V50 ThinQ is a dual-screen phone with 5G connectivity
As the successor to V40, LG has launched the V50 ThinQ flagship with the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset, a total of five cameras, 5G support, and a bigger 4,000mAh battery. However, the highlight of the flagship phone is its Dual Screen accessory which adds to the device and serves as a secondary display - LG's practical answer to foldable phones. Here's our roundup.
Up front, the LG V50 ThinQ sports a notched display with a slim bottom bezel, IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, and a MIL-STD 810G certified build quality. On the back, the glass chassis houses a triple camera setup and a fingerprint sensor. Further, the V50 features a 6.4-inch QHD (1440x3120 pixels) OLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and HDR10 support.
The Dual Screen for the LG V50 comes with a 6.2-inch full-HD (2160x1080 pixels) OLED display and connects to the phone via three Pogo pin connectors. Notably, the add-on screen draws power from the phone as it lacks its own battery. Moreover, LG also offers a bunch of software features, allowing you to swap screens or use the dual screen as the main display.
The triple rear camera setup on the LG V50 comprises a 12MP (f/1.5) main sensor, paired with a 12MP (f/2.4) telephoto sensor and a 16MP (f/1.9) wide-angle sensor. Up front, the phone gets a dual camera setup with an 8MP (f/1.9) RGB sensor and a 5MP (f/2.2) wide-angle sensor.
The LG V50 ThinQ is powered the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 process, paired with Snapdragon X50 modem for 5G connectivity, Adreno 640 GPU, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage (expandable upto 2TB). Under the hood, it packs a 4,000mAh battery and runs Android Pie out-of-the-box. Further, the phone supports all standard connectivity options including Type-C port and a headphone jack with 32-bit DAC.
LG will launch the V50 ThinQ 5G in select markets later this year. However, the South Korean tech giant hasn't yet announced the pricing details of the flagship.
