LG is starting manufacturing smartphones you could attach secondary screens to get a little extra room to work with. The company hopes this wide-eyed idea enough to convince people to buy its new V60 ThinQ 5G. You can set a full-screen keyboard on one display while watching your words fill an email window on the other. Its 6.8-inch P-OLED screen is decently handsome but runs at 2,460 x 1,080. There’s a 5,000mAh battery inside these lightly redesigned bodies. The V60 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and 8GB of RAM. The company’s press statement says AT&T, T-Mobile, U.S Cellular, and Verizon have all committed to selling the phone, but it appears only Verizon’s with support both 5G network types.
It is noteworthy that the major change is a reduction in the number of cameras. The V60 ThinQ 5G has three cameras, a 10-megapixel front-facing, a 13-megapixel rear ultra-wide with a 117-degree field of view, and the 64-megapixel main wide sensor. The V60 has a dedicated telephoto camera like its last two V-series phones and it can capture 8K footage at 24 fps. The company decided that we’re all better off using this main camera for zoom photos. So, people will be able to push in up to 10X without a significant reduction in quality and the V-series camera setups are all about flexibility.
The V60 uses a time-of-flight sensor around back to determine the level of separation between your subject and its background. There are some good things about the V60 about fairness to LG. It is amazingly fast with its high-end processor. LG’s custom skin doesn’t clutter things up much and still has a 32-bit Quad DAC. The V60 ThinQ 5G is considered to be one of the best smartphone choices for people who care about audio quality. The dual-screen gimmick was already plenty finicky, isn’t any less confusing to use than before. The camera setup lacks the charm and flexibility of its earlier models.
