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

A comparison with the new LG G8 shows that the V50 ThinQ is slightly more powerful, which shouldn't come across as a surprise since the phones in LG's "V" series are normally more powerful than their compatriots in the "G" series. It's an interesting take on the foldable phones trend: It's not as fancy, but having the option to leave it at home when you don't need it and just use the phone as a regular soap bar phone has its advantages. No matter which method you choose, the end result will be more or less the same and the screenshot will always be saved to the gallery of your device. The company has also introduced a dual camera version of LG G8 ThinQ which is called as LG G8s ThinQ.

However, the highlight of the flagship phone is its Dual Screen accessory which adds to the device and serves as a secondary display - LG's practical answer to foldable phones.

No pricing or availability was offered by LG during its Mobile World Congress conference but we will keep you updated. In this technology, the screen doubles up as a speaker!

"Installing vein recognition in a mobile device is [a] first", said David Montanya, a product evangelist from LG Electronics' mobile communications team at the unpack event.

Kayla Dillard photographed McGowan posing with the two girls and posted it to Facebook , where it garnered more than 12,000 likes. WSPA-TV reported Detric McGowan was arrested Tuesday morning by federal officials from the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Regardless, the logical conclusion with 5G is that LG will be partnering with major carriers to bring the LG V50 ThinQ to markets where it can be best used on new 5G networks, and Australia (with Telstra's 5G network) will be one of the launch markets. The phone features a 6.2in (15.7cm) matching Dual Screen display and both the screens use OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology. You can then use your palm to unlocked the G8 ThinQ by placing your palm in front of the front-facing camera. It might be LG jumping the shark on distinctive features, but it's the kind of insane that just has the potential to help LG stand out in a mobile world that tends to offer a general sense of uniformity.

LG says it can be used when you're wearing gloves and while swimming, making it ideal for use when the screen won't function as well. The in-house developed Crystal Sound OLED screen vibrates to create sound - it works together with the phone's boombox speaker at the bottom to create cohesive audio. It has a slightly larger 6.4-inch OLED QHD+ display, a 4000mAh battery, and comes with numerous same specs as the G8, though it lacks the Z-camera and the Crystal Sound OLED.

The LG G8 is expected to be priced in at nearly the same price point as the Samsung Galaxy S10. There's also no word on when it's going to launch yet, but it's expected to be available via Sprint sometime during the first half of 2019.
