It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to use an LG smartphone. When it was first announced, there was a lot about the LG V60 ThinQ that was sort of exciting, especially looking at its spec sheet.

It’s 2020 and the headphone jack has basically died every death it could. After Apple quite literally pulled the plug from its iPhone 7, holdouts in the Android market have also been dropping support. Now, the only major “flagship” phone left with a headphone jack is the LG V60 ThinQ. Would you buy from LG to keep your headphone jack?
Today, LG announced the latest in their V series of Android enthusiast phones, the absolute mouthful that is the LG V60 ThinQ 5G, and gave some reviewers special early access to the phone to compensate for the cancellation of MWC 2020. From what we’ve seen in hands-on takes so far though, the LG V60 doesn’t improve enough on last year’s equally dual-screened V50.
The ideas behind foldables like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and dual-screen phones like the upcoming Microsoft Surface Duo have been pushed further into the forefront over the last year or so, with LG crafting their own “foldable” from last LG V50 ThinQ. Today, the company is formally announcing their next-generation dual-screen capable phone, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G.
Alleged press renders of the upcoming LG V60 ThinQ have leaked, and they showcase some of the upcoming hardware features including a massive 5,000mAh battery, quad-camera setup, and, yes, a headphone jack.
