  • LG’s first 5G phone is the V50 ThinQ

No word on pricing yet for either, though with both being flagships, we suspect you'll be eyeing price ranges beyond the $1000 mark locally. To maintain its profile with uninterrupted lines, the rear lens housing is completely flush with the back of the phone. So, there is no earpiece or front speaker on top. LG always try to find some new triggering feature to push sales. So, what's this Hand ID? The phone also recognizes a user's vein pattern, width and other characteristics to replace fingerprints.

For extra value, the front-facing camera can also detect gestures. This means that users can even swipe left and right in order to access various apps or adjust the volume.

In summary, the LG V50 has a 6.4-inch notched display with a 3120×1440 resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It also retains the notch, and screen.

The G8 comes in only 128GB storage variant whereas you can choose between 64GB and 128GB storage when it comes to the G8s ThinQ. It packs a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.

House to vote to overturn Trump's emergency declaration
They could hand their president an embarrassing setback, forcing him to use his first veto of his administration. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to discuss the issue with GOP senators during their weekly private lunch.

All devices run Android 9.0 Pie. There's a fingerprint scanner at the back and the device comes with MIL-STD 810G protection and IP68 certification to withstand water and dust.

To help the hardware endure the increased data processing derived from 5G connectivity, its CPU, developed by Qualcomm, has been upgraded to the latest Snapdragon 855 and the battery capacity has been increased by 20 percent compared to the predecessor V40. It also houses 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of native storage that can be expanded up to 128 GB with a microSD card.

In addition, LG V50 ThinQ features a triple rear camera setup and dual front camera setup. I'll be testing LG's Hand ID as I have more time with the LG G8. So, there are dual cameras that include an 8MP Standard (F1.9 / 1.12μm / 80˚) camera & a 5MP wide-angle (F2.2 / 1.12μm / 90˚) camera.

Sources close to the matter report that LG's V-series offers improved video, camera and display technology that is packed in to a slim, powerful smartphone ideal for entertainment connoisseurs, mobile professionals and content creators. The display directs sound toward you for a rich, clear, and immersive sound experience that also lets you hear calls easily and comfortably. Users can easily switch between the two displays. The bottom speakers have been retained and are now capable of stereo sound.

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.
