LG’s new smartphone in their V series – The v50 ThinQ was announced at the G8 ThinQ at MWC 2019. The v50 is the first 5G smartphone from LG and is expected to release later this year. For all those patiently waiting for the smartphone, we bring you all the latest updates on the smartphone today, so let’s dig in!
The LG v50 ThinQ hasn’t been given an official release date, but according to the company the phone won’t be released globally. LG has confirmed that the phone will only be available in the UK. It’s surely disappointing for all those waiting for the phone. The phone will be released in the US too, but there’s no confirmed release date for that too.
LG in the past released its G series phones in the first half of the year and G series in the latter half of the year. Going by the release dates, V50 should be released in October 2019. But this all is just speculation; we’ll have to wait for the official confirmation.
Coming to the specifications, as said before the main highlight of the phone is that it supports the 5G technology. That means you’ll be getting a boost of 20% on the existing 4G speeds.
Other than that, v50 is a much bigger than its predecessors because of the bigger Snapdragon X50 chipset and a bigger 4000 mAh battery to get it going through the day. The screen is a notch, thin bezels, and a 6.4in OLED sporting dual front cameras. It also comes with IP68 water resistance and a rear fingerprint sensor. The rear cameras are the same three camera setup with the addition of wide-angle and 2x optical zoom upgrades.
The Snapdragon 855 runs the things under the hood with 128 GB storage and 6 GB RAM. The v50 also provides an optional Dual Screen accessory. It comes in a hinged case with a 6.2in OLED which can turn 360 degrees. The phone also comes with LG’s world-famous headphones.
