LG Launches The V50 5G, A Dual Screen Flex Phone

We've seen the release of foldable phones from Samsung, Huawei and Nubia, and still hope for more releases at the Mobile World Congress 2019. LG too has also joined the list of companies that have released a foldable smartphone.

LG's latest flagship, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G (yeah, i know the name is pretty long) comes with an optional case that has a second screen on it. The two identical screens will offer users split screen functionality that a complete foldable smartphone has to offer.


The LG device main screen is a 6.4-inch OLED 3120x1440 display with QHD+ resolution. Now, the second display is in the "LG DualScreen" accessory of the LG V50 ThinQ 5G. On the inside of the case, instead of a soft screen cover, there's an OLED 6.2-inch 2160x1080 display that has a stiff hinge in the middle to keep the two screens side by side.

The second screen uses an unspecified short-range Wi-Fi to connect to the device. There's also a triple pogo pin connector that allows the second screen to draw power from the main device internal battery
Design wise, there isn't much difference between the LG V50 ThinQ 5G and the V40. There are two cameras in the notches on the main display. These includes a standard 8MP one and a 5MP one wide-angle sensor.

At the back of the device, there's a triple rear camera setup though LG's engineers this time fit in the camera sensors into the device body, thereby eliminating the camera bumps that are on the V40.


The triple camera setup includes: a 12MP standard F1.5 camera, 12MP telephoto one wth F2.4 and a 16MP wide-angle one with F1.9. One new feature that LG added is the ability of users to take portrait-mode videos with the front facing camera and the ones at the back!

The device is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There's a 400mAh battery to power the LG device and a Quick Charge 3.0 to speed up charging time.

With a Snapdragon X50 5G modem that promises downloads of multiple gigabytes per second, LG added a new Vapor Chamber heat-dissipation to combat the heat that the 5G modem produces.


The LG V50 ThinQ 5G comes with Android 9.) Pie out of the box with LG's Android skin. Other specs includes a Boombox Speaker, IP68 water resistance, Al camera, Google Lens and 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Buetooth 5.0 and yeah, there's a 3.5mm headphone jack on the device.

For now, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G will be available in Astro Black at launch.
