Not one to miss out on the 5G race, LG unveils one of its groundbreaking smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2019, the V series flagship LG V50 ThinQ. Succeeding the usual 4G performance, the gadget assures that users get to experience high-quality content at 5G speeds.
In order to facilitate a seamless 5G connectivity, the device is powered by the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem along with LG’s optimized software. It’s also equipped with a 4,000mAh-strong battery and features a new Vapor Chamber heat-dissipation system to keep the smartphone’s internal temperatures low—ideal for multitasking in between heavy apps and games.
Perhaps the LG V50 ThinQ’s most distinct feature is its Dual Screen capability. Its main display flaunts a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display while its second display features a 6.2 OLED screen for an ultimate viewing and multitasking experience. Intense mobile gamers will be glad to know the Dual Screen can be utilized as a dedicated controller and that users can switch in between screens effortlessly.
In terms of audio performance, the V50 ThinQ does not disappoint. With the DTS:X technology at its helm, audiophiles get to experience surround sound and a seamless, realistic soundscape. It also supports Qualcomm aptX and aptX HD audio technology for superior Bluetooth audio quality when listening over headphones or earbuds.
Information about the V50 ThinQ’s camera is scarce, but LG effected a Video Depth Control to the front and rear camera system so that images come in sharp detail and professional-grade. It features a 16MP super wide, 12MP standard, and 12MP telephoto lens in the back and an 8MP standard and 5MP dual-camera in the front.
As for its price and availability, LG has yet to announce its specifications, but is partnering with 10 major carriers where 5G service will be dispatched this year including the United States, South Korea, Australia, and selected EU countries.
