LG has just announced its latest flagship, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G. In recent years, LG has changed its update schedule a little and the line that was usually announced in late summer has now moved to the beginning of the year.
Calendars aside. the LG V60 ThinQ 5G has the arduous task of making the South Korean again relevant in the market. However, this new top of the range was the victim of some choices that put it at a disadvantage compared to its main competitors.
One of the points that disadvantages the LG V60 ThinQ 5G is the presence of only three lenses on its rear, but with a stark absence. The rear camera of this model consists of a main lens of 64MP, a wide angle of 13MP and a ToF. When almost all of the current top-of-the-range products on the market still have a telephoto lens, LG thought that would not be necessary.
Second, we have a huge 5000mAh battery, however, without decent fast charging technology. When we already see some models with speeds up to 65W, this LG V60 ThinQ 5G comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0+ technology.
LG V60 ThinQ 5G specifications
- 6.8-inch Full-HD + P-OLED display with 20.5: 9 ratio
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor
- 8GB RAM
- 128GB internal memory expandable up to 2TB via microSD card
- 64MP + 13MP + ToF rear camera
- 10MP front camera
- 5000mAh battery
- On-screen fingerprint sensor
- Wireless charging
- 3.5mm Jack
- IP68 certified
- Android 10
Removing the points I mentioned above, this LG V60 ThinQ 5G has specifications that clearly classify it as a top of the range. That is, its performance will not disappoint those who buy it. It also has the advantage of having the 3.5mm jack, something that many of its competitors no longer have.
Audio is once again one of the assets of the new top of the range from South Korea. In addition to having the usual Quad DAC and stereo speakers, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G also has four built-in microphones.
These will make it possible to reduce background noise in your videos. This is because, thanks to this set, the user will be able to isolate the sound emitted by what he wants to record from the background sound.
Cover with a second screen is back
As with the LG G8X, this LG V60 ThinQ 5G will also have an accessory that will allow you to add a second screen. This will have a secondary screen of 6.8 inches and a smaller one on the outside to display some notifications.
This option is intended to rival folding smartphones, allowing the user more space to be used in an economical and resistant way. However, there is a physical separation between the screens that does not make the experience more elegant.
LG V60 ThinQ 5G price will be important for your success
LG has announced that the LG V60 ThinQ 5G will hit stores in the coming weeks. It is possible that this model will arrive in mid-March, but if it is as usual, we will not see it in UK anytime soon.
In contrast, LG did not mention what the smartphone price will be. I believe that for it to be an option, it will have to have a value well below the Galaxy S20. However, this may not happen.
