With the V60 ThinQ 5G, LG today introduced its new flagship model, which is delivered with the current Snapdragon 865 and a 5000mAH battery. In contrast to other top devices, the smartphone lacks some features.
After many specifications of LG’s new flagship smartphone have already leaked in the past few weeks, the manufacturer has finally launched its new V60 ThinQ 5G today. The smartphone has features similar to many other current top models. LG uses the Snapdragon 865 from Qualcomm, the 8 GB RAM and either 128 or 256 GB internal storage as a processor, whereby the latter can be expanded by up to 2 TB using a microSD card. Thanks to the new chipset, 5G support is also on board.
The 6.8-inch display, however, comes with a resolution of 2460 x 1080 pixels, whereby the panel has a waterdrop notch in the top center, which hides the 10 MP selfie camera. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not follow the trend and only uses a 60 Hz panel, while other companies in the price range can often already offer at least 90 Hz. After all, the fingerprint scanner can be found here under the display. LG installs a triple camera setup on the back, in which the main sensor has a resolution of 64 MP and the wide-angle camera has a resolution of 13 MP. The third sensor is responsible for the calculation of depth information. Videos can also be recorded in 8k with the main sensor. The battery is relatively large with a capacity of 5000mAH and should ensure adequate battery life. Android 10 is preinstalled as the operating system.
As with the predecessor, you can also buy an extra display cover for the V60 ThinQ 5G, which also has a resolution of 2460 x 1080 pixels. The case represents LG’s answer to the trend towards foldable smartphones.
Overall, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G looks like a balanced device, but the model with its 60 Hz display and camera setup lacks some features that would be appropriate in a flagship smartphone in early 2020 and that would help the model to differentiate itself from the competition. The V60 ThinQ 5G is expected to be available worldwide in the next few months.
