Folding is fashionable, having a larger screen size in a compact device is ideal. But this is not the only formula on the table. LG has moved away from this line of thought and has decided to present two screens on the same device. This secondary screen is integrated into a removable accessory, users can choose whether they want to have two or one screens depending on the moment. The latest addition to this design line is the LG V60 ThinQ 5G, which is the successor to the LG V50 ThinQ 5G and enhances many of its features. Here is a detailed description of all the features of this new LG device.

Ready to Compete with this year’s high-end device
LG has not yet taken the step towards folding phones, but that doesn’t mean they have rested on their laurels. The LG V60 ThinQ 5G is coming to compete with this year’s high-end. It does so in style and with the hope of winning over the hearts and pockets of users. To do so, they land with a careful and premium design, it is built in metal and glass. The front has a reduced frame, but we find a teardrop notch at the top. The front screen is 6.8 inches with Full HD+ resolution (2,460×1080), 20.5:9 format and OLED panel technology.
The screen is conservative compared to its direct rivals, both in resolution and in refresh rate. LG does not jump on the 120Hz bandwagon as its direct rivals do. The second screen of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G has the same technical specifications as the main one. In principle this is an advantage, it will offer the same level of brightness, colors, and sharpness. But at the same time, the LG Dual Screen has a notch on the top, even though it doesn’t house any cameras as the main screen of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G does. Both panels share pixel density, 395 pixels per inch.
5,000 mAh Battery and Snapdragon 865
The LG V60 ThinQ 5G’s internal design features Qualcomm’s latest innovations, along with plenty of RAM and storage. The processor is the Snapdragon 865 with the X55 Modem that lets the device support 5G networks. It has 8GB of RAM, but the storage has two versions: 128GB or 256GB, both expandable with microSD cards up to 2TB. The crown jewel of the specification is the battery capacity, it is 5,000mAh. It’s true that with this figure you have to power two screens, but it seems that LG has listened to the users and decided to expand the amperage of their batteries.
The LG V60 ThinQ 5G as a high-end model comes with connectivity that is expected and up to the task: WiFi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, USB type C 3.1, LTE, 5G, GPS and a headphone jack that integrates a Quad DAC Hi-Fi. LG also does not forget about security, the fingerprint reader is integrated into the display and the device has passed the military resistance test MIL-STD 810G so it can withstand shocks and falls, it also has IP68 certification for water and dust. It is almost a tank, but this also makes it somewhat heavy, 214 grams without the LG Dual Screen and with this accessory it reaches 348 grams in weight.
LG Doesn’t Join in Mounting Many Cameras
LG is going its own way, while the other manufacturers opt for multiple cameras for their devices, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G comes with only three on its rear and one of them is a ToF. The main one is 64 megapixels with a 1.8 focal, 0.8μm pixel size and 78 degrees of amplitude, has OIS optical stabilization, Dual Pixel PDAF autofocus and pixel grouping, four pixels in one, making the sensor a 16 megapixel one. The secondary is a wide-angle that remains at 13 megapixels with focal 1.9, a pixel size of 1.0μm and 117 degrees of amplitude, also has Dual Pixel PDAF focus. The one for the selfies is 10 megapixels with focal 1.9, a pixel size of 1.22μm and 72.5 degrees of amplitude.
We haven’t been able to get our hands on the LG V60 ThinQ 5G yet, so our opinions about the camera will have to wait. But it has some interesting features in both photo and video, notably its ability to record at 8K at 25 frames per second, looking directly at Samsung’s Galaxy S20 family. Although it’s not the only thing it can do, it also has 4K and 60fps recording, HDR10+ recording, 4K time-lapse, video portrait mode and electronic stabilization that supports optical stabilization of the main lens.
Price and Availability
The LG V60 ThinQ 5G does not have an exact date of arrival on the market. According to LG, this new device will be available from next month in the different markets. The price will depend on the version chosen, but remember that only the storage varies. The colors will be blue and white. We will update the article as soon as we have the official data of price and availability.
