LG Announces V50 ThinQ 5G Flagship with Optional Second Screen

LG G8 ThinQ hands-on Palm-reading Android adopts smarter sensors

LG’s first 5G phone is the V50 ThinQ

LG had flagged back in August 2018 that it was working with Sprint on delivering the first 5G smartphone in the United States in the first half of 2019, following the launch of the carrier's 5G network. LG has also added a real-time video portrait mode to the device as well.

Still, the V50 misses out on the LG G8 ThinQ's real party piece: its 3D-sensing, time-of-flight-enabled front-facing Z Camera, that enables Air Motion gesture controls and Hand ID authentication.

The 4G LG G8 ThinQ, meanwhile, is the first G series device from LG to feature an OLED display, sporting a 6.1in QHD+ FullVision screen. It also emits sounds, together with the Boombox Speaker (LG introduced on the G7 ThinQ) which turns the entire phone's housing into a resonance chamber.

Three months ago they were singing "attack, attack, attack" and today they were singing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's name for all of the second half. "Luckily we've got two days recovery".

The LG V50 ThinQ is a 6.4-inch phone with Qualcomm's latest and greatest chip, the Snapdragon 855.

The LG G8 ThinQ will be available in three colour variants including Carmine Red, New Aurora Black, and New Moroccan Blue.

The Z Camera is responsible for 3D Face Unlock and Air Motion too, the latter allowing owners to perform functions - such as answering the phone or adjusting playback volume - without touching the phone, simply by using hand gestures.

On the front, the smartphone houses an 8MP camera. It runs Android 9 Pie out of the box, retains the headphone jack with the high-fidelity 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC built-in, and a USB Type-C charging port. The accessory comes with a 6.2-inch OLED FHD+ display with 1080x2160 pixel resolution for multitasking and gaming experience.

The V50 inherits the triple-lens rear camera LG introduced with the V40 late previous year.

LG mobile this evening at its MWC event in Barcelona showed the World what its plans for the future of mobile. Since it is equipped with support for 5G, it is expected to hit the market a bit later than its flagship siblings LG G8 ThinQ and LG G8s ThinQ. The smartphone comes with IP68 rating which makes it dust and water resistant and it also has military grade certification. Then again, LG did cut out a few features from the V50 ThinQ perhaps to bring the price down to a more acceptable level. The smartphone includes a 12MP (f/1.5) primary sensor, 16MP (f/1.9) super-wide angle lens, and another 12MP telephoto lens to help you get close to subjects.

Trump met earlier with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, who joined him in the Oval Office for an informal press conference afterwards. Trump said that he is willing to extend the March 1 deadline, if he sees substantial progress in the trade talks.

LG has essentially stuffed the V50's 5G running gear and new silicon into the body of the V40, while also bumping up the battery size from 3,300 mAh to 4,000 mAh.
