Despite MWC’s rejection, LG has presented its new top model for the current year. The LG V60 ThinQ is characterized above all by its attachable second display. The so-called “dual screen” works like a predecessor as a kind of folding bag with a display. It can be purchased optionally, but so far LG has neither mentioned the price for the actual cell phone nor for the accessories.

When looking at the LG V60 ThinQ, what is particularly striking is the redesigned display recess compared to the predecessor. In the LG V50, LG had built a bar at the top in the iPhone style, in the new device there is a teardrop-shaped notch. LG is therefore not following the trend in the industry to either accommodate the notch in the display or replace it with a pop-up camera, at least for high-end models.

Another trend that LG is opposing: The V60 ThinQ still has a headphone jack. In addition to Sony, LG is one of the few manufacturers who still install the 3.5mm jack. Sony is another such manufacturer, the Xperia 1 II also comes with a socket . Samsung has dropped the jack on its new S20 smartphones.

The V60 has three camera modules: the main camera has 64 megapixels (F1.8), next to it is an ultra wide-angle camera (F1.9). The third module is a “Time of Flight” camera (ToF), which is responsible for depth measurements. With the main camera you can record 8K videos. In the front is a selfie camera with 10 megapixels.

The hardware of the V60 ThinQ lives up to its status as a top model. The mobile phone is powered by a Snapdragon 865, which is equipped with a 5G modem – you can also use the V60 in the 5G network if you have a corresponding contract. The working memory is also at the flagship level with 8 GB, with the storage space you can choose between 128 and 256 GB. The OLED display is 6.8 inches in size and has a resolution of 2,460 x 1,080 pixels.ALSO READLG V50 ThinQ: dual screen instead of folding display

A highlight is the 5000 mAh battery, which is powerful enough to supply the cell phone and display module with power. Especially when the second display is not plugged in, the LG V60 ThinQ should hold out for a long time before it has to be plugged in. The V60 ThinQ runs on Android 10 and is expected to be launched in March. ( there
