LG’s First 5G Phone is the V50 ThinQ 5G with Dual Displays

It's technically a folding phone..


We’re seeing the second flagship from LG, which is the V50 ThinQ 5G. As the name suggests, it is a 5G device which basically looks the same as the V40 from last year. Only this time, it contains a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor wand X50 5G modem, support for Wi-Fi 6, and a larger 4,000 mAh battery. The lit-up back also displays “5G” every time you touch the screen.

Unlike the G8, this one doesn’t have any of the features like depth-sensing Z cam or vibrating Crystal OLED display. Instead of that, it goes for a  pair of stereo speakers, a normal 6.4-inch OLED display, and dual cameras in the back – featuring one 12-MP main camera, and one 16-MP wide-angle camera.

LG also increased the size of the V50 5G’s vapor chamber cooling system by 40-percent to handle the extra heat generated by 5G modems.

But this phone also has something which the G8 ThinQ doesn’t – Dual Screen Displays! LG says the screen can be used to multitask. It also features a UI that makes it easy to move apps from one display to another quickly between screens quickly, and it can also be used as a dedicated controller for gaming, with touch controls on the lower display.

With Huawei and Samsung launching their own foldable phones, this might be LG’s way of not losing the game. There’s no official pricing or availability info for the V50 5G yet.
