LG is introducing two new flagship phones — the LG V8 ThinQ smartphone with a front-facing Time of Flight camera for capturing depth and detecting touchless gestures, and the new LG V50 ThinQ 5G, which, as the name suggests, is the company’s first 5G-ready smartphone.
But aside from the 5G modem, the new V50 ThinQ has a bunch of other attractive specs including a big, high-res display, a speedy processor, plenty of memory and storage, and… a microSD card reader. It’s nice to see they’re not dead yet.
Here’s a run-down of the specs for the new LG V50 ThinQ:
- 6.4 inch, 3120 x 1440 pixel (564 ppi) display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor + Snapdragon X50 5G modem
- 6GB of RAM
- 128GB of storage
- microSD card slot (up to 2TB)
- Fingerprint scanner (rear)
- 3G/4G/5G support
- 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC
- USB 3.1 Type-C
- Stereo speakers
- 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC
- HDR10 support
- 4,000 mAh battery and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0
The phone also has three cameras on the back and two on the front:
- 12MP f/1.5 standard camera
- 16MP f/1.9 super-wide rear camera
- 12MP f/2.4 telephoto zoom read camera
- 8MP standard front camera
- 5MP wide-angle front camera
The LG V50 ThinQ 5G is also sorta/kinda LG’s first dual-display smartphone, thanks to an optional Dual Screen case accessory that adds a secondary 6.2 inch touchscreen display to the phone.
