LG launches V50 5G smartphone with dual screens on the Telstra network
LG has launched its first 5G smartphone in the Australian market with the release of the V50 ThinQ which has a unique dual screen design that offers an all-new mobile experience.
Launched exclusively on the Telstra network, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G provides next level immersion and on the go convenience with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED screen and a secondary 6.2-inch display.
The LG V50 ThinQ 5G can be used on its own as a single screen device but, when clicked into included accessory, users can double their screen space and enjoy more room for viewing content, multitasking and gaming.
It is also possible to use each screen independently or combine them for an even more powerful solution.
In a game, for example, the top screen can be used as the monitor while the lower screen can be your controller and thus avoiding the problem of your hands getting in the way of the action.
The dual screen can sit at two convenient angles, 104 and 180-degrees.
The secondary screen runs off the phone’s battery so you’ll never need to charge it separately.
“The LG V50 ThinQ™ 5G is an exciting Smartphone design, crafted to change the way consumers interact with their apps and one another,” said Angus Jones, General Manager Marketing, LG Australia.
“From gamers live-streaming their friends and using social media to business users reading documents while video-conferencing, the Dual Screen option offers a streamlined approach to multi-tasking.
“After months of rigorous testing in partnership with Telstra, we are pleased to offer Australian consumers the first Dual Screen 5G Smartphone that offers the reliable communication needed to experience high-quality content at 5G speeds, which is progressively being rolled out in more and more locations.
The LG V50 5G is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem.
Also under the hood is a 4000mAh battery which is 18 per cent larger
than the battery onboard the LG V40.
On the camera side there are five lenses with the system incorporating video depth control on both front and rear cameras.
The device also has strong audio credentials with excellent audio quality and stereo performance with or without headphones.
The Boombox Speaker feature seen on earlier LG smartphones has been used again with the LG V50 5G and acts as a resonance chamber to deliver next-level bass performance.
“5G is expected to completely transform the mobile landscape and we will continue to lead and bring this technology to Australians first,” said Paul Milford, Networks Principal, Mobile Innovation Rollout, Telstra.
“We are pleased to partner with LG to bring their leading 5G Smartphone to our customers first and are working tirelessly to roll out the technology to grow coverage to more cities, regional centres and high traffic areas,” he added.
The LG V50 ThinQ 5G Smartphone with dual screen accessory will be available on June 11 through Telstra and will be priced at $1728.
The device will also be offered on a range of Telstra plans.
