The series of shadow launches in the wake of the cancellation of MWC continues this morning with LG unveiling their latest flagship phone, the V60 ThinQ 5G.

Preview(opens in a new tab)

The LG V60 ThinQ 5G – I’ll just call it the V60 from now on – is early this year, with LG skipping the G-series phone launch normally set for this time of year, but we’ll apparently hear more about it later in the year.

The V60 is gorgeous, with a 6.8-inch FHD+ (2,460 x 1,080) resolution screen, which is duplicated with a dual-screen accessory that adds another 6.8-inch display to expand your working area if you want. Both the main display, and the add-on features a tiny tear-drop notch to house a 10MP selfie-camera which offers a nice f/1.9 aperture.

Under the hood, the V60 spec sheet reads like a flagship – which it is – offering a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor with an X55 modem for 5G coverage. You also get a 5,000mAh battery, dual rear cameras (64 MP main sensor + 13MP with Super Wide angle lens) and a ToF sensor. There’s an in-display fingerprint reader instead of one on the rear like last years V50.

The device itself is tough, wth IP68 dust and water resistance and it also includes MIL-STD 810G Compliance.

For audio lovers LG has again included a Quad DAC, so you’ll love the sound and you also get a headphone jack.
