Starting with a large 6.8-inch Full HD+ P-OLED screen, amazing military-grade IP68 and Gorilla Glass protection, HDR 10+ display, and the Dual Screen feature. It also features a design that seamlessly brings together metal and glass for a premium feel in hand.

Both the phone and the upgraded second screen accessory come with super sharp 20.5:9 ratio FHD+ P-OLED displays that are almost a half-inch larger than before. The Dual Screen in particular tips the scale at the same superbly portable weight as its predecessor, thanks to the thinner OLED panel. With a ribbed back for a more secure grip and the same-sized OLED panel found in the V60 ThinQ 5G, LG Dual Screen doubles the available screen real estate to make multitasking, productivity, gaming and entertainment more enjoyable than ever.

Under the hood of the V60 ThinQ 5G is the best of the best, with the Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with a speedy Octa-core Kryo processor, great graphics and 8GB RAM.

Camera-wise, the flagship features two rear cameras and time of flight (ToF) sensor array, including a 64MP primary camera lens for sharper, brighter images regardless of lighting conditions. Also available is a 13MP wide-angle lens for more agile and all-encompassing shots. For the first time on an LG device, it supports 8K video recording for capturing videos in stunning 8K quality and jaw-dropping detail. Then there’s the 10MP selfie camera completing the package.

In terms of storage, the 128GB internal storage found on the V60 ThinQ 5G is just enough. Thankfully, there’s the microSDXC expansion slot that allows you to add more space easily.

With 5000 mAh battery powering up the smartphone, there won’t be any problem for it to last for a good day or two in between charging. The fast battery charging feature will get it up to speed in no time at all.

Then we have the V60 ThinQ 5G sporting the latest Android 10.0 operating system. Finally, the 5G connectivity lets you get the fastest connection no matter where you are.
