The LG V50 ThinQ has a couple of highlight features. First is 5G connectivity, making the V50 ThinQ LG's first 5G-capable smartphone. LG is partnering with 10 carriers around the world who plan to launch 5G this year, including Sprint in the U.S., who will begin selling the LG V50 ThinQ this spring. Verizon has confirmed that it'll carry the LG V50 ThinQ, too, complete with 5G support. A launch on Verizon is planned for this summer.
Besides its 5G support, the LG V50 ThinQ's other major feature is its Dual Screen attachment. This optional accessory looks like a cover case, but when opened will give you a second 6.2-inch 2160x1080 OLED screen. The two screens can run two separate apps, letting you multitask with two large displays, or you can use a multi-window feature to divide each screen in two. The Dual Screen can also function as a game controller for mobile gaming. The attachment is powered by the LG V50 ThinQ, so there's no need to charge the Dual Screen case. There's no word yet on how much the Dual Screen attachment will cost.
The LG V50 ThinQ's spec list includes a 6.4-inch 3120x1440 OLED display with a notch that houses a dual front camera setup that includes an 8MP standard camera and a 5MP wide angle snapper. Around back there's a triple camera setup with a 16MP super wide angle camera with a 107-degree field of view, a 12MP standard camera, and a 12MP telephoto sensor. There's a fingerprint reader on the back of the device, too.
Inside the V50 ThinQ's 8.3mm body is a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 4000mAh battery. There's NFC and Bluetooth 5 in there, too, along with stereo speakers, a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The LG V50 ThinQ's body is IP68 water and dust resistant and is also MIL-STD 810G compliant for added durability.
