LG V60 ThinQ goes official with massive battery, 5G support, 64MP camera
A huge display, three cameras, and 8K video support
Building upon the design language of previous-generation smartphones, the LG V60 ThinQ features a massive 6.8-inch OLED display complete with a tall 20:9 aspect ratio, a Full-HD+ (2460 x 1080p) resolution, slim bezels, and a waterdrop notch.
pixel binning technology to produce both more detailed and brighter 16-megapixel shots. For the first time ever on an LG smartphone, support for 8K video recording has also been included alongside a new feature dubbed Voice Bokeh, which boosts the user's voice and minimizes background noise to improve clarity.
Circling back to the camera setup, the aforementioned primary shooter is coupled with a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle alternative and a dedicated Time-of-Flight sensor for better portrait photos.
Snapdragon 865 paired with 5G support and massive battery
The LG V60 ThinQ's premium external packaged is joined by a long list of flagship-level specifications. The highlight of it all is undoubtedly Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with the Snapdragon X55 5G modem.
The new phone, as you'd expect from any other device in 2020, ships with Android 10 straight out of the box and, in this case, the brand's custom UI too. Also included is a ginormous 5,000mAh battery with fast charging support – 30 minutes will give you a 50% charge – which should minimize the impact of 5G network support on battery life.
Completing the list of specifications is a 10-megapixel selfie camera, IP68 water and dust resistance, stereo speakers, and an in-screen fingerprint scanner much like the one featured on last year’s models.

LG V60 ThinQ pricing, carrier availability, release date
The LG V60 ThinQ will be available in Classy Blue and Classy White over the coming weeks from AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. Verizon is planning to offer an updated version called the LG V60 ThinQ 5G UW later this year that’s compatible with its 5G Ultra Wideband network and 5G low-band network.
Specific pricing and availability details are yet to be shared, but LG says it will cost less than the existing LG V50 ThinQ 5G, which originally retailed at $999. Hopefully that means a price point in the region of $899 or lower is planned.
