Verizon adds third 5G smartphone in 2019 NYSE:VZ

Verizon adds third 5G smartphone in 2019 NYSE:VZ

The LG V50 ThinQ 5G is the first smartphone from LG with 5G support.

The LG V50 ThinQ 5G has a second screen attachment called Dual Screen, which can be used as a dedicated gaming controller or for multitasking purposes. Here are all the release date and pre-order details, pricing, shipping information and more for potential buyers. The company has announced that it has partnered with 10 major carriers in the markets where 5G service will be launched this year, which includes the US, South Korea, Australia, and some of the key European markets.

To start with, the camera with the 8mp lens has been decked with the IR sensor as well as a transmitter designed for the motion-captioning purposes and 3D mapping.

The new smartphones run on Android 9.0 Pie, comes with triple rear camera set-up and are powered by newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. The LG G8 also has facial recognition, which technically works for unlocking the phone without lifting it up to reach the fingerprint sensor, but facial recognition has its own limitations, like awkwardly hovering your face above the phone to unlock the phone while it's resting on a table. The secondary screen has a touch screen, so you can use them both at the same time. The dual screen feature again is brought about by a case with an OLED panel attached to it, which means there is none of the foldable display thing there. Instead, it's going for dual screens in the form of an accessory aptly called Dual Screen for its new LG V50 ThinQ 5G. The case again draws battery juice via the Pogo pins on the rear of the V50 to power the extra display. The RAM is 6GB and inbuilt storage capacity is 128GB, which is expandable up to 2TB via microSD card.

LG G8s ThinQ features a 6.1-inch QHD+ display and IP68 dust and water-resistant technology.

Elsewhere, the G8 ThinQ comes with the same Snapdragon 855 chip, DTS:X sound and audio that actually uses the screen to augment the sound. While at the front, there is an 8-megapixel RGB sensor with the f/1.9 aperture with 80-degree lens and a 5-megapixel 90-degree wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture.

It didn't seem that useful at first, but I could see its uses for unlocking the phone while it's resting on a table.

With all the new insightful innovations they LG team managed to pack into such small devices, it certainly wasn't surprising that numerous press reporters were scrambling to their demo room to test them out.

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