The V50 is available in black, and will be launching with 10 major carrier partners across the US, South Korea, Australia, and Europe. However, there had been no official statement regarding the price and availability of both Smartphones.
But if you want that taste of unusual, LG will have a "Dual Screen" cover case accessory, allowing you to add a second LG V50 ThinQ 5G for a multi-screen device.
It all sounds impressive but after the sexy unveilings from the other aforementioned manufacturers, I've got to say the phone comes across as incredibly underwhelming. There is a Video Portrait mode that lets users control the bokeh while shooting videos from the rear camera.
The latest LG flagship smartphone is confirmed to come out with a "time-of-flight" front-facing camera, as confirmed by LG.

And that's a big issue, because the LG G8 is fronted by one large screen, even killing the slim speaker grills, adopting a screen-basef speaker technology, something LG announced ahead of Mobile World Congress.
This can be used to unlock the phone with your face, which should in theory be faster and more consistent than Apple's Face ID. Adddtionally, LG's G8s, which has fewer features and lower specs than the G8, is also skipping the American market. This model has a Full HD+ OLED FullVision display rather than Quad HD+, though it has the same hardware as the standard G8 model including the processor and front camera arrangement. According to Verizon, G8 ThinQ pre-orders will start "very soon", but no pricing was announced. Then, all one has to do is to hover their hands over the phone's camera to unlock it, without actually touching it.
The LG V50 ThinQ is a 6.4-inch phone with Qualcomm's latest and greatest chip, the Snapdragon 855. It's powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
In line with the V series thin design, the V50 is just 8.33m thick, while still meeting USA military MIL-STD 810G standards for durability. The triple camera configuration has a 12MP standard camera, a 16MP wide-angle lens, and a 12MP telephoto lens while the dual camera variant won't feature a telephoto lens, as reported by The Verge.
This arrangement consists of a 12-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.5 aperture and 78-degree lens. Apart from 5G, the handset offers 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C for connectivity. There are pogo pins on the backside of the V50 ThinQ for attaching the phone. The phone also has a neat light up 5G logo on the back of the phone that flashes yellow (signifying LG's partnership with Sprint for 5G service) anytime you touch the screen. The touchscreen case sports a conventional smartphone design with rounded corners, but with thick top and bottom bezels. The phone comes with a 6.40-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 3120 pixels at a PPI of 538 pixels per inch. It enables users to access functions by hand gestures without touching the screen. Since the two screens work independently, users can operate two separate apps at the same time.
