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.
