As 5G services starts rolling out across Australia smartphone manufacturers continue to launch new devices in anticipation of consumers upgrading their phone. LG has joined the festivities with the roll out of its dual screen V50 ThinQ 5G. If you are looking at this device carefully then you should be aware that it is certainly not a device that is supposed to be foldable without actually being foldable. If you are wondering what else there is to know, then here is everything you could ever want to know about the LG V50 ThinQ 5G.
The display and camera
The LG V50 comes with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision Display and features an aspect ratio of 19:5:9. It is light as a feather weighing in at just 183 grams. On the rear of the device are a pair of cameras one with a 12MP lens and the other a wide angle 16MP lens. On the front of the phone are another couple of cameras, an 8MP primary camera and a secondary 5MP wide-angle lens. In terms of security there is the obligatory biometrics in the form of both facial recognition and fingerprint scanner.
The LG V50 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage and the 5G model also supports Wi-Fi 6 plus a 4,000mAh battery. LG has chosen to focus on audio quality and the device supports Qualcomm aptX and aptXHaudio tech for low-latency bluetooth audio performance. LG has adopted its Boombox speaker from its G7 model which allows the device to take advantage of an internal resonance feature to amplify the bass when it is placed on a solid surface.
The second screen
The most important selling point when it comes to the LG V50 is without question its dual screen, which is optional. Buyers can choose to add a second 6.2-inch OLED display to the side of the device, which doesn’t make it completely foldable and also drains the battery from the primary device and must therefore be charged separately. Aside from multi-tasking, the idea behind the second screen is to cater to mobile gamers. The second display can be used as a dedicated touch controller which is particularly nice in a low latency 5G world.
