LG's Answer to Foldable Smartphone Is a Dual Screen Sandwich

LG’s first 5G phone is the V50 ThinQ

"This is because it offers the functionality that comes with more screen real estate, the Dual Screen is 6.2" (FullHD+), and on the demo devices on display, LG showed it working in conjunction with visual-heavy apps like Google Maps and Gmail. It has a slightly larger 6.4-inch OLED QHD+ display, a 4000mAh battery, and comes with numerous same specs as the G8, though it lacks the Z-camera and the Crystal Sound OLED.

As such their foldable display technology is out of reach for many consumers, but there could be an alternative for users on the hunt for phones with multiple form factors. With the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, however, nearly the opposite has happened.

In line with the V series thin design, the V50 is just 8.33m thick, while still meeting United States military MIL-STD 810G standards for durability.

"This has been made possible by the combination of the Z Camera technology and infrared sensors". The phone sports a ToF (time-of-flight) camera up front that recognizes the shape as well as the movement of your hand and allows you to control certain aspects of the device - like taking a screenshot - without touching it.

LG's other G8 feature is called the "Z Camera". The earpiece has also been eliminated from the phone and in place LG has introduced Crystal Sound OLED display. It will come in red, black, and blue. A 6.2 inch display functions like a cover but also provides the user with a second screen. While the dual camera variant LG G8 ThinQ boasts of a wide angle lens and primary sensor. To start off, the G8 comes with an interesting camera system called the Z Camera.

Furlong further said that the ICC is "likely to discuss this at the ICC Board meetings this week and we will be monitoring the situation with our members".

It packs a 6.2-inch Full-HD+ display as opposed to the QHD+ on the G8 ThinQ. The case draws power from the phone's battery and, thus, does not need to be charged separately.

To help the hardware endure the increased data processing derived from 5G connectivity, its CPU, developed by Qualcomm, has been upgraded to the latest Snapdragon 855 and the battery capacity has been increased by 20 percent compared to the predecessor V40. Users can further expand the storage by adding a microSD card. The LG G8 is likely to feature 6GB RAM and will run on the Android 9.0 Pie OS. For selfies, there's a dual camera set up consisting of an 8MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture + 5 MP wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture.

The G8 also retains a headphone jack using LG's always great 32-bit Hi-Fi quad DAC for awesome wired audio.

Frankly, the feature I'm most interested in is the new, 4,000mAh battery.

It is still unknown if and when these devices will be launched in India. The company's new V50 ThinQ is its first 5G phone that will be available in the coming months.
