What you need to know

  • A screenshot from an LG V60 ThinQ promo video has revealed the upcoming LG flagship will have a massive 5,000mAh battery.
  • The V60 ThinQ will also come with a total of four microphones and a quad-camera setup at the back.
  • It is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset, like most other upcoming 2020 flagship Android phones.

LG's smartphone business may be performing poorly, but the company is still hopeful that it can turn things around with a strong lineup of 5G phones. Two screenshots from a promotional video for the company's next 5G flagship, the LG Time (V60ThinQ), have leaked, courtesy of legendary leakster Evan Blass.

The screenshots reveal that the next LG flagship phone will be equipped with four microphone channels, which should allow for more impressive audio recording capabilities compared to its rivals. In addition to four microphones, the V60 ThinQ will also have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Like its predecessor, the phone will likely include a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC as well. Keeping the lights on will be a 5,000mAh battery, a significant upgrade over the 4,000mAh cell inside the V50 ThinQ.

The screenshots also seem to suggest the V60 ThinQ will have a quad-camera setup at the back, instead of the V50 ThinQ's triple-camera array. Unfortunately, the rest of the V60 ThinQ's spec sheet remains a mystery at this point. The same goes for the phone's launch date, although Blass claims the V60 ThinQ will be LG's spring flagship this year. Since LG isn't going to be participating in MWC 2020, it is possible that the phone will be launched at a dedicated event sometime before the end of this quarter.

LG's V50 ThinQ is among the more affordable 5G smartphones that are currently on sale in the U.S. While it isn't as impressive as rivals such as Samsung's Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, it costs hundreds of dollars less and packs solid specs.

  • How are updates like on LG devices? Monthly? How long is the wait for the OS after Google drops it?
  • If you don't mind waiting or being behind, LG devices are really great. You just have to be comfortable using them as is which is to say just fine.
  • I have a V40 and my next phone will be Samsung due to LG slow software (security ) and operating system updates.
  • I have a V40 and my next phone will probably be the V60, lol. It's not without it's flaws, but I've had it over a year now, and I'm not cursing at it every day like all 3 Samsung Galaxy series I had after a year of quick, but crap, updates. My V40 still runs lag free, battery life is acceptable (5k would be nice though), and reception is good.
    Factory Reset within a year:
    Samsung - Definitely
    LG - no need
    Remove apps even though memory is nowhere near full:
    Samsung - Of course
    LG - load it up
    Digital Assistant:
    Samsung - use crap Bixby, S-Voice, whatever we call it next, or else!
    LG - Google Assistant is cool with us, cause, you know... it works.
  • I'm same.
    I love lg mics, DAC and cameras.. But... I have LG V30.
    Android 8.0.0
    Aug security patch. Rediculous... And why I'm leaving.
  • Enjoy not having a headphone jack
  • I hear ya..
    It's a scary proposition.. Just wish LG would step up their game with software updates. It's truly that bad.
  • If it comes to T-mobile, I will definitely upgrade my V40 to the V60. Otherwise I may have to settle for the OnePlus 5G model.
