Although Mobile World Congress has been cancelled, companies still have their product cycles and have to reveal new devices ahead of launch in the coming months. LG today announced its new high-end smartphone, the V60 ThinQ 5G, which is based on Qualcomm’s newest flagship platform, features a new camera setup, and has one of the largest displays on the market.

As one would expect from a premium 2020 Google Android smartphone, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC alongside the Snapdragon X55 modem as well as the FastConnect 6800 subsystem that supports Wi-Fi 6. Meanwhile, the device also has 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM as well as 128 GB of NAND flash storage (expandable with a microSD card).

The LG V60 ThinQ 5G comes equipped with a 6.8-inch FullVision P-OLED display featuring a 2460×1080 resolution along with a 20.5:9 aspect ratio (which reminds us of Sony’s Xperia 1 with its distinguished 21:9 screen), one of the largest smartphone display around as far as high-end handsets are concerned. It's a bit odd to see LG use a lower resolution screen than the V50 last year, even at such a large device size and certainly won't be optimal for some users.

Meanwhile, for those who feel that one monitor is not enough, LG will offer a new Dual Screen accessory (featuring a similar size and resolution) for the new phone.

One of the key improvements that the LG V60 ThinQ 5G has over its predecessor is without any doubts its new main camera setup comprising of a 64 MP main sensor, a 13 MP module with a 117º super-wide-angle lens, a 3D time-of-flight (ToF) sensor, and a dual-LED flash. The main camera supports 8K (and 4K60) with HDR10+ video recording, along with various modes to make proper photographs in various conditions. On the front, the smartphone has a 10 MP camera housed inside a dewdrop notch design.

On the audio side of matters, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G comes equipped with stereo speakers, 32-bit quad DACs, and a quad-microphone array. Meanwhile the handset has a 3.5-mm audio jack, making this one of the last Android flagships with the feature, as well as a dedicated Google Assistant button.

Yet another prominent advantage of the new V60 ThinQ 5G is its massive 5000 mAh battery that promises a 21-hour talk time as well as a 590-hour standby time on one charge. The battery can be charged using a Qi wireless charger supporting Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0+ or a USB-C wired charger.

Traditionally for numerous modern high-end handsets, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G features an aluminum frame with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as Gorilla Glass 6 on the back. Meanwhile, the device is MIL-STD-810G tested as well as IP68 dust and water resistant (up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes). The product weighs a quite heavy 219 grams (7.72 ounces) and will be available in Classy Blue as well as Classy White finishes.

Other notable hardware features of LG’s latest smartphone are Bluetooth 5.1, an under-display fingerprint reader, and a host of sensors.

    I have had the v20, v30, V40 & now cup. All have been great phones in their own way. All have done things better in some ways than Samsung & worse in others. In tired of people denigrating LG based on past boot loop issues. Samsung has had their issues in case anyone has forgotten about the note seven battery fire fiasco, a far more dangerous issue than a boot looping phone. LG is doing quite well considering & have made some wise choices with the V60 compared to Samsung. This is not really being marketed as a gaming phone & 120Hz refresh is a real battery hog. The V60 can still play games & can do it longer than others can if using one screen.

    The dual screen is a much more reliable option than folding display phones not to mention less expensive. The second screen is of the same quality as the main screen which can be used for multitasking or gaming should counteract the loss of hi refresh rates or screen resolution. Screen resolution to me in unnoticeable between 1440 & 1080 on screens of this size. To be able to offer the second screen of equal quality as main screen at a price below Samsungs cheapest S20 is a solid feat on & of itself. The cameras trade blows in terms of which is better so I consider them of equal quality in spite of not having an optical zoom. Reports have some people liking the V60's zoomed pictures better than the S20's.
