The new LG V50 ThinQ is the company's 5G handset with a foldable twist


At MWC 2019, LG announced a new 5G phone, much like most other Android phone makers. The company's new V50 ThinQ is its first 5G phone that will be available in the coming months.

The LG V50 ThinQ looks a lot like the company's existing V40, which means that much of the design of the device is the same. LG has nevertheless introduced a series of upgrades to support 5G and offer more power required for 5G, however. The device is now bundled with the Snapdragon 855 platform with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem, a larger 4000 mAh battery and a new steam chamber heat sink system for better cooling. The camera comes with a fullVision QHD + OLED display of 6.4 inches and has a thickness of 8.3 mm, which is a bit thicker than the standard V40.

Oh, and the device apparently carries a brilliant 5G logo on the back to inform you that it actually has a 5G connectivity.

And then there is one more thing – LG presents the foldable phone with an accessory that you can buy separately for the V50 ThinQ. The accessory adds a second 6.2-inch OLED display to the V50 ThinQ, thus enabling a foldable phone feature and allowing you to use two apps at once. You can only use the dual monitor from two different angles – 104 ° and 180 ° and use the phone's battery to power the display. This is nothing like some of the other folding phones we saw at MWC this year, but it's certainly an interesting point of view.

The ThinQ V50 will be available exclusively at Sprint in the US, and later at Verizon. The device will also be available in other regions, especially in some European countries, later this year. As for the Dual Screen accessory, you will not be able to buy it in the United States and it is not clear in which regions the accessory will go on sale.
