LG just officially announced its sixth V-series phone – the LG V60 ThinQ 5G. The phone come with the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset together with Qualcomm’s X55 modem which supports both flavours of 5G, mmWave (higher bandwidth) and sub-6GHz (better coverage). In addition, the phone has a new dual camera setup with a 64MP main sensor, a bigger 5000mAh battery and a revamped dual screen accessory.
LG V60 ThinQ Features
The LG V60 ThinQ comes with a large 6.8 inch FHD+ OLD panel with a tall 20.5:9 aspect ratio. It has the same waterdop notch like the LG V50S and now it holds a 10MP selfie camera. The display also houses a built-in fingerprint reader and is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
At the back of the V60 ThinQ, you will find a ToF sensor and a pair of cameras – a 64MP main shooter with OIS and 13MP ultrawide snapper with a 117 degree field of view. The phone is capable of 8K video recording with support for HDR10+ in manual mode.
The Snapdragon 865 chipset it came with is paired with a 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, which can be expanded further via the microSD slot. The V60 ThinQ is IP68 dust and water-resistant and MIL-STD 810G compliant.
On the software-front, the LG V60 ThinQ runs on Android 10 with LG UX 9.0 on top and sports a dedicated Google Assistant Key on the left-hand side. Keeping true to its roots, LG once again brought a 32-Bit Quad DAC, stereo speakers and a 4 microphone setup.
The massive 5,000 mAh battery supports Quick Charge 4+ as well as wireless charging. The V60 also supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 connectivity standard.
LG also updated its Dual Screen accessory which now boasts a 6.8-inch FHD+ OLED panel with a 360 Freestop Hinge which can be used in laptop, stand and tent modes. There is also a new 2.1-inch notification panel with convenient always-on functionality. The second screen now connects via the USB-C port and unlike the one from the V50 lacks its own power supply.
