The Coronavirus outbreak made LG pull out of the MWC 2020 event. But it seems that the company is still in works to unveil the next flagship smartphone that is rumored to be the LG V60 ThinQ in Dubai. In 2019, we hardly saw any LG smartphone in the market. Even at CES 2020, the company focused mostly on home entertainment, which includes TVs, speakers, kitchen appliances, and others. The South Korean manufacturer also submitted a patent for the foldable OLED case, but there was no mention about the name of the handset, It is alleged to be the LG V60 ThinQ. Also, we have two leaked promotional pictures with significant specifications of the upcoming LG flagship.
Regardless of LG attending the MWC 2020 event or not, but the company is likely to unfold the LG V50 ThinQ successor with some attractive specifications. Rumored to be the LG V60 ThinQ in Dubai, the device is depicted to have a quad-rear camera setup. We have already seen the LG V40 and LG V50 with the triple camera system, and adding an extra sensor is a progression. And the additional lens is likely to be a ToF or macro sensor.
It is not only the Quad camera, but the device also sports four microphones. LG prides itself to elaborate the mic setup, thus enhancing the video and audio recording capability. Not to forget! The LG current phones are also the class-leading phones in this aspect. And, the LG V60 ThinQ retains the 3.5mm headphone jack which was removed from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 smartphones.
According to the reports, the LG V60 ThinQ gets a 6.7-inches display coupled with 5G support. Thankfully! LG equips the handset with a 5000mAh battery and adopts a fast charging technology. The leaked renders showcase the device with a quad-camera module aligned horizontally. It is quite interesting to find that the new V60 ThinQ looks similar to the LG G9 ThinQ. This means that the device could get a dewdrop notch on the front to house a selfie sensor. You could also count upon having a top-tier chipset. It is likely to get the support for the 5G chipset, which could be the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC for 5G connectivity.
From the transparent rear cover, we could also see a single secondary sensor on the front. Few rumors claim that LG is planning to merge both the V-series and G-series. New information points that instead of merging, LG could ditch G-series.
Another notable fact is that the upcoming LG V60 ThinQ in Dubai will not be a foldable smartphone. But the rumors suggest that LG is working on a Dual screen display with a redesigned hinge. Last year we saw a Dual Screen accessory for the LG V50 ThinQ offering 360-degree hinge. It allows users to play video games in the landscape using the top screen. The bottom screen displays the virtual controls. And, there is a difference between the foldable phone and dual-screen phones.
Of course! The company confirms none of the details of the upcoming LG V60 ThinQ. However, the specifications leaked suggests that the company is looking ahead to reveal something extraordinary. Well! It is even a bit early to predict LG V60 ThinQ price in Dubai. It is worth to wait for a specific period to get to know the exact details of the LG flagship.
