LG announces its first dual screen 5G smartphone

LG’s first 5G phone is the V50 ThinQ

LG G8 ThinQ announced with Hand ID palm unlock feature, coming soon to T-Mobile

On Feb. 15, Kwon Bong-seok, president of LG's home entertainment and mobile communications businesses, had said it was "too early" to bring to a smartphone the same concept of its iconic rollable OLED TV that had wowed the world during January's Consumer Electronics Show.

The LG V50 is equipped with 32-bit Hi-Fi Qual DAC, Google Lens, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 5.0 and few other connectivity options along with many handsfree gestures to operate the device.

The LG V50 ThinQ very much looks like the V40 from past year albeit a glowing yellow 5G logo that lights up whenever it hooks up with the 5G network. The only difference between the two devices, at least at the outset, is a 5G logo located on the rear of the smartphone. However, we expect them to arrive by Mid 2019. The LG V40 ThinQ did not have the best battery life and the G8 may suffer a similar fate.

This arrangement consists of a 12-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.5 aperture and 78-degree lens.

The LG G8 ThinQ will also get air gesture controls, something we're sure we've seen LG try before, though in this phone, it might be at its time.

But the deal was later challenged by the administration of President Donald Trump, which pulled America out of the accord. Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif gestures during a press conference in Tehran, Iran, February 13, 2019.

One of the highlight features of the LG G8 ThinQ is its Z Camera, which uses Time-of-Flight to enable some unique functions. But it does have some things that the G8 doesn't. The G8 ThinQ and G8s ThinQ come with 3,500mAh and 3550mAh batteries respectively supported by Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. It features a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display and features the usual notch.

The system is processed by Snapdragon's 855 CPU and Adreno 640 GPU. In the US, Sprint-which a 5G mmWave network-is calling the phone its. There is support for MicroSD. "LG's newest flagship, the (deep breath) ", is not a foldable smartphone, but it does have an optional case with a whole second screen on it.

On the front, the smartphone houses an 8MP camera.

Powering the LG V50 ThinQ 5G's "5G experience" is a 4,000 mAh battery. For the 5G phone's launch, LG has partnered with 10 major telcos in markets where 5G service will be launched this year, including the US, South Korea, Australia as well as several European countries.

The LG G8 ThinQ features facial biometric technology powered by Xperi Corporation subsidiary FotoNation's FaceSafe for device unlocking, which combines a low false acceptance rate (FAR) and low single-digit false recognition rate (FRR) with attention detection and anti-spoofing technologies to detect print, video, and 3D mask attacks, according to the announcement. This is the phone with nearly the same specifications with slight tweaks here and there.
