LG V50 ThinQ: Australian Specs, Price And Release Date

Image: LG

LG has taken a different approach to the big-screen challenge. Rather than going for a folding display, like Samsung, Huawei and Oppo, LG has decided to go for two separate displays that work in tandem. The dual-screen LG V50 is actually a single-screen handset with an optional secondary display that works via a helper case. The display data is transmitted from the main phone to the second display using a very short-range wireless communication method supplied by Keyssa.

In addition to the dual-screen option, LG will boast 5G comms - and it's going to be available locally!

LG V50 ThinQ Australian pricing

Offical pricing hasn't yet been revealed for Australia. The V40 retailed for $1299 but we can expect 5G and the ability to connect a second display to add a premium to that. I'm thinking given LG's place as a challenger brand that we'll see the price edging towards $1500 with the second display adding perhaps $300-$400 on top.

LG V50 ThinQ release date

During Mobile World Congress, LG noted the work done with the US carrier Sprint in developing the V50 5G. While no exact date was given, it's anticipated that the LG V50 ThinQ will be released in the next three months, during the Northern Spring or our Autumn. Telstra has confirmed that it will carry the device exclusively in Australia (but you should still be able to buy it outright for use with another telco.)
