LG assures that with the phone it has gone all out to boost the display and audio performance of LG V50 ThinQ 5G so consumers can enjoy more immersive content as they watch more and play more on 5G.

To straightaway nose dive into the specifications of LG V50 ThinQ, it has a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ FullVision OLED panel with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. On the front, is an 8MP standard sensor with f/1.9 aperture and a 5MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The LG G8 is likely to feature 6GB RAM and will run on the Android 9.0 Pie OS. The company has updated the newest phone's front camera, which is known as a Z Camera and introduced a couple of new tricks. LG says that this method is more secure than fingerprint recognition. One of the small differences you can see in the hardware is that the camera is now flush on the back.

Users can also activate features with gestures - for example to play or pause a song or video, or adjust the volume, by twisting their fingers, emulating the character played by Tom Cruise in science-fiction detective thriller Minority Report.

LG's latest smartphone, the G8 ThinQ, brings quite a bit of change to the G Series.

It comes with 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM and a dedicated slot for MicroSD (up to 512GB).

The case connects to the phone over an unspecified short-range Wi-Fi connection, and a triple pogo pin connector allows it to draw power from the V50's internal battery. Another notable feature of this phone is that it comes with a new accessory to add a second display for better gaming and multitasking experience. The G8 & G8s ThinQ have 3,500mAh & 3,550 mAh batteries respectively with Quick Charge 3.0 support.

Compared to the Galaxy S10 and its triple camera lens system, the LG G8 seems a little lacking.

There's also an optional case for the V50 that comes with a secondary, 6.2-inch OLED display with a 2,160x1,080 pixel resolution. Like most smartphones this year, it will use Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 855 processor. Hiding inside the notch are not one but two selfie cameras with an 8 MP sensor paired with a standard lens and 5 MP sensor paired with a wide-angle lens, like on its successor the V40 ThinQ.

The phone comes in single Astro Black colour option and will be available in select markets such as the US, South Korea, Australia and select European markets later this year.

What we do know is that LG typically waits at least a month, often even two, before releasing phones.

The light sensor does something really incredible, it scans the veins in your hand though we can recognize your face as well for unlocking the device through the biometric process.
