When considering purchasing, I would like to check the specifications and features of the model in detail. Therefore, in this article, we will explain the specifications of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G in detail, including the two-screen reputation of the previous model.
The dual-screen display is super convenient
The biggest feature of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G is its dual-screen display.
In fact, it is a one-screen smartphone that is no different from other smartphones, but by installing an external display, you can create a two-screen smartphone. The special case is an external display.
By making it into 2 screens, you can use it conveniently such as “Watching videos while open map”, which is not possible with ordinary smartphones.
What you can do with the dual-screen display
- App can be used simultaneously on two screens
- “Gamepad” can be used
- You can read a book in a two-page spread
1. The app can be used simultaneously on two screens
You can open two apps on two screens at the same time.
You can capture the map or web screen displayed on one screen with a single button and share it via email or LINE.
2. “Gamepad” can be used
From the app “Game Launcher”, you can display the controller and operate the game. You can play comfortably like a portable game console.
3. You can read a book in a two-page spread
You can also view e-books such as Kindle in a two-page spread. The display size is one of the largest for smartphones, so it should be like reading a book.
When you turn off the phone, you can see the time on the “monochrome display”. A monochrome display is also provided on the backside of the sub-display. The time/date and battery capacity are displayed on the off-screen.
When you want to check the time, you can quickly check it while the screen is off.

The battery is 5,000mAh, which is quite large. It has been increased from the previous model from 4,000mAh ⇒ 5,000mAh.

By the way, it also supports wireless charging. This is also a nice point.

Added TOF camera. Improves portrait quality
It is also noteworthy that the TOF camera was added. You can take beautiful pictures in portrait mode. Portrait mode is a shooting mode that blurs the background while clearly capturing the subject.
