Multimedia capture remains in line with what LG brand: an off-road main sensor, wide angle and a third rear ToF camera designed to capture the depth of the scene. And this is also a guarantee for video recording, an aspect that the brand does not neglect in the ‘V’ range: complete application, great audio capture and professional recording tools.

The second screen as a distinction

Given that folding mobiles are a trend, and that they do not yet offer a clear way to differentiate themselves beyond the flexible screen, LG introduced in the previous V50 the accessory of the double screen, a cover with a secondary panel where you can from using another application to making this screen serve as a game controller. And the best part is that it is enough to remove it when not in use; thereby reducing the thickness and weight of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G.

The characteristics of the second screen are as follows:

  • 6.8 inches of P-OLED screen with FHD + resolution.
  • Display on deck: 2.1 inches monochrome.
  • Size: 175.9 x 86 x 14.9mm.
  • Weight: 134 grams.

In essence, It is as if a second mobile were added to the first while both are held together by hinges. After our experience with previous models, we can say that the sensations are varied: although it is useful for depending on what use (games, productivity apps), having an extra thickness and weight continuously tends to be uncomfortable. It can be removed and put on when necessary, yes.
