LG unveiled its first 5G smartphone, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019. The V50 ThinQ 5G comes with a notable feature – specifically, a second screen.
The V50 ThinQ 5G has a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision Display (3120 x 1440). It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and includes the Snapdragon X50 5G modem. It has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage with expandable storage up to 2TB via microSD. The device also houses a large 4000 mAh battery that charges through USB-C port with Quick Charge 3.0.
In terms of optics, the V50 ThinQ 5G has a dual front-facing camera. This includes an 8MP lens and a 5MP wide-angle lens placed in the notch. On the rear, the device sports a triple camera setup with a 16MP super wide-angle lens followed by a 12MP standard lens and a 12MP telephoto lens.
The most notable feature of the V50 ThinQ 5G is the ability to attach a second screen. The second screen is a 6.2 inch FHD+ OLED display powered by the phone’s battery. The dual screens work independently, allowing users to multitask and run apps on both screens simultaneously. It could also become a dedicated controller for gaming scenarios.
As of now, LG has not released any information regarding pricing and availability for the device.
