LG V60 ThinQ 5G arrives with 5,000mAh battery & Snapdragon 865
LG V60 ThinQ 5G is the latest premium flagship from the company & as the name suggests, it is the successor to the last year’s LG V50 ThinQ. The V50 ThinQ made headlines due to the fact that users could attach a secondary display to it, thanks to the connectors present on the right side of the phone. The V60 ThinQ keeps that feature but makes it better this time. Moreover, the specs get bumped up as well.
Design-wise, there is nothing unique as the phone has a display with U-shaped notch on the front & a horizontally placed camera setup that has dual cameras & the ToF sensor. The fingerprint scanner is there under the display, so this makes it the third LG device after the G8X & V50S ThinQ to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The LG V60 ThinQ keeps the headphone jack, something that most of the brands have already done away with. Also, a headphone jack means the phone has Hi-Fi Quad DAC, one of the best things about LG flagships. The phone is IP68 dust & water-resistant, has stereo speakers & four microphones.
Talking about the specs, there is a 6.8-inch P-OLED Full-HD+ display with 20.5:9 aspect ratio & Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Under the hood, the V60 ThinQ features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SOC with X55 5G Modem to support both mmWave & sub6GHz 5G. There is 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage that is expandable via microSD card up to 2 Terabytes.
On the rear, there are dual cameras that include a primary 64 Megapixel unit with f/1.8 aperture & a secondary 13 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with 117-degree FOV. The two cameras are placed alongside the Time of Flight sensor (Z Camera). There is a 10 Megapixel selfie camera with f/1.9 aperture.
As mentioned in the beginning, just like its predecessor, the LG V60 ThinQ comes with Dual Screen functionality so you can attach a secondary 6.8-inch 20.5:9 P-OLED FHD+ display via a cover that has a 360 Freestop Hinge & a 2.1-inch cover display.
The V60 ThinQ comes with a big 5,000mAh battery and is pretty heavy at 214g. Android 10 runs out of the box.
The phone comes in two colors – Classy Blue, Classy White. There is no word on the pricing yet, but LG has said that the phone would be available in key markets in North America, Europe, and Asia from next month.
