LG V60 ThinQ 5G gets bigger screen and battery, keeps 3.5mm headphone jack

LG’s newest Android flagship is here.

Meet the LG V60 ThinQ 5G. LG’s newest V series phone features several upgrades over the V50 ThinQ, like a screen that’s nearly a half-inch larger but also has a smaller notch. The display on the LG V60 is a 6.8-inch P-OLED panel with 20.5:9 aspect ratio and 2460×1080 resolution. There’s also an in-display fingerprint sensor here rather than a rear fingerprint reader like on the V50.

LG is once again using the Dual Screen attachment with the V60, but this add-on’s display has also been upgraded to have a 6.8-inch P-OLED screen. The outside of the Dual Screen attachment has a 2.1-inch mono display that you can set to always show key info.

The cameras on the LG V60 ThinQ 5G have been upgraded, too. The main cam is a 64MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture with pixel binning to 16MP images, and there’s also a 13MP wide angle camera with f/1.9 aperture and 117-degree field of view. LG has added a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor on the V60 to help gather depth info.

LG has upgraded the V60 ThinQ to a Snapdragon 865 processor. There’s 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of storage packed in, too, and there’s microSD slot will let you add more storage if you need it. The battery on the V60 has been increased to 5000mAh, and Quick Charge 4+ will help you refill that big battery in a hurry.

The body of the LG V60 ThinQ is IP68 water and dust resistant and also meets the MIL-STD 810G standards for added toughness. There’s a USB-C port for charging, and unlike many other smartphones available nowadays, the LG V60 also includes a 3.5mm headphone jack. A 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC will get you higher quality audio with compatible headphones.

LG says that the V60 ThinQ 5G will be available from T-Mobile in the U.S. as well as AT&T, Verizon, and U.S. Celluar. Pricing and specific launch timing will be announced at a later date.

What do you think of the LG V60? Do the Dual Screen attachment, bigger 5000mAh battery, and 3.5mm headphone jack have you interested?

    What I’m curious about is why is lg downgrading on screen resolution maybe that’s why there phone sales are down

    • George Salcedo

      Might be more related to battery life at this point especially with the dual screen add on.

    • g2a5b0e

      Your comment makes very little sense. Their phone sales have been down for years. This phone isn’t out yet. Clearly, one has nothing to do with the other.

  • pda96

    I applaud LG for keeping the jack. As for the dual screen setup, this is a heavy phone. So I won’t be buying one.

    • Jon

      Yep, 3.5mm and a microSD slot = winners

  • Ver

    Does it have a memory slot?

    • Alex Wagner

      Yep, there is a microSD card slot. I forgot to mention that but have added it to the post.

      • Ver

        Very interested in this phone. Will be watching for reviews.

        • Jay Holm

          I am a current LG G7 owner, and I am interested in this phone also.

  • Jim Mill

    I use to love LG but slow on updates, always Samsung on something warranty issues are a nightmare I like the company I wanted to work but feel like I’m getting less I guess I’m a OnePlus guy now I hate it but they are so slow for new models. LG v60 should have come out November lgg9 should be coming out in one month they have lost there way.

  • Linx

    If LG prices this $800-$900 they could have a winner on their hands. I still have the V40 that I use as a media and content device & it’s still a great device…minus the fact that it hasn’t gotten the Android 10 update.

    I am disappointed that the wide angle camera will have 117 degree field of view up from 107 degrees. I personally prefer the 107 because is lessened the rounded look at the edges of pics & videos. The V40 was one of the only phones to offer that.

    Speaking of camera, I’m so glad that LG didn’t go the iphone & Galaxy route of hideous camera cluster on the back.

    • none

      They say it’s going to cost less than a base S20. And LGs improving their software update situation…

      • Linx

        They sure haven’t improved yet. And it needs to cost significantly less, no telephoto lens in 2020…really???

        • none

          Seeing as even Notebookcheck is reporting that they’ve seen updates being sent out to LG phones at a faster pace recently, I’d say they have improved. Nice try though.

  • Jay Holm

    I notice it doesn’t say Sprint when listing carriers that will carry it, I wonder if T-Mobile will get LG to make this variant Band 41 5GNR ready?

    • davianny

      According to both GSMarena and phonearena websites, it does.

  • George Salcedo

    Still have my V30 but the battery life isn’t what it used to be. I’m hoping the V60 is good in this department and they also offer a BOGO deal with adding a line.

    • marque2

      I would stick with the V30 and wait for the v70. If V70 offers something super compelling get it otherwise get this phone next year at half price and get most of the TMobile 5g capabilities.

      • George Salcedo

        Im ready for an upgrade now, battery life on the V30 ain’t too hot. The V60 looks legit so far.

      • Joe Marrow

        shucks… you still have a v 30… i’m still rocking an all original…game changer…back in 2015..LG..v 10 !!…..the very 1st LG foray into hybrid phones… to me this phone still is “light years” ahead of the rest of the pack… with it’s innovative dual screened front… that 2nd screen across the top works great if one ever wants to go “stealth”… be very secretive, not allow the whole phone to be seen as a call comes in. plus… that 2nd screen is so incredibly useful for a lot of phone functions… while keeping the main screen off / hidden with the optional and slick….fold open case i have for it. yes, it is incredibly old by today’s standards… in processor speed…(it was slow, behind the times when it was 1st launched in 2015)… only has 4gb upfront…(but 4gb back in 2015 was hot)….. 64gb on the phone…but it came with a FREE 200gb.. card…!!! it has a stainless steel frame… it’s hot… very sturdy… and it good looking with both side of the steel showing on either side of the phone. battery life compared to today’s standards sucks, yes… but… at least i can pop off the back and swap for a fully charged battery that i always keep with me. .. it has gorrila glass 4… (the highest available back in 2015)… but with the steel sides.. the rubbery pop off back… it is beyond incredible drop-proof… i have dropped it 50+ times in 5 years… and nothing ever happened to it…. 8ft onto asphalt, concrete… no screen break..ever… LG should make a “retro” v 10… using the same dual screened front as with the original v 10…. have 16gb.. a upcoming 865 plus processor…. and 1tb ram… like asus’s latest phone… so, while the s20 ultra is here.. the v60 is here… and every other hot phone made since my v 10… no other phone has impressed me enough yet to let go of this one. whoever reads this…. check out the original spec page on LG’s website on the v 10… and you will see true beauty in a hybrid phone…. any other v 10 warriors out there still..????

  • francob911 .

    Stereo Speakers or Boombox speakers?

  • Jay Holm

    The specs listing on GSM Arena website lists support for BOTH Band 71, and Band 41 NR5G…so the V60 should be able to take full advantage when T-Mobile gets to work on integrating the Sprint network.

  • Ver

    I just read somewhere that mmWave part of 5g will be exclusive to Verizon and everyone else gets the lower band 5g. I cannot express how stupid that is if it’s true.

    • Ver
    • Joe

      It’s because it’s difficult to fit all the band needed for LTE, 5G sub6, and 5G mmWave. Remember at one time LTE compatibility was different for every carrier so you had to buy carrier specific model. But now all phones have every LTE band for ever carrier. In a year or 2 the seam thing will happen with 5G and the same phone will have all bands.

      • Ver

        I hang onto my phones for a long time so I want it to be as future proof as possible. I’m getting ready to upgrade from a note 4. And the fact the phone is capable and only available to Verizon kinda pis*es me off.

  • riverhorse

    I applaud the continuing screen size increasing. Maybe someone can hit 7″.

    What happened to the G9?

  • marque2

    I don’t get why it is a problem that LG is not following the others by raising the refresh rate. That was important 25 years ago with CRTs with quick phosphors – higher refresh prevented flicker – but I have never seen flicker on a phone. Is it just a number for marketing purposes?

    • Joe

      So on phones having 60 hz refresh rate is quite noticable and great to have, more then that is not necessarily usfull are all that much better on a phone. On a tablet where you might be drawing and doing more professional work it can be very nice to have 120 hz and helpful for drawing, (I builive it also reduces eye strain). For gaming 120 or more is very obvious on big screen.

      • marque2

        Maybe I just can’t see it on my phone cuz my eyes are getting old. I remember flicker on my old CRTs though but couldn’t tell @ 80hz +

  • James Symmonds

    I want to love LG phones (had a V30 and still have my V20 as a just in case) but their updates are slow to non-existent.

  • AdamJaramillo

    Getting this as soon as it’s on T-Mobile.

  • Mark Craig

    It looks like. I found my next smartphone. LG V60
