The LG V50 ThinQ, commonly referred to as the LG V50, is an Android phablet manufactured by LG Electronics as part of the LG V series. It was announced in February 2019 and is the successor to the LG V40 ThinQ.[2]

Specifications[edit]

Design[edit]

The V50 is largely identical to the V40 externally, albeit with a flush rear camera similarly to the LG G8 and a 5G logo which lights up in different colors depending on the carrier. In a departure from past V-series phones, the V50 is only available in one color, black.

Hardware[edit]

Most of the V40's hardware is reused including the display and cameras, but the V50 features a newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 system-on-chip and Adreno 640 GPU, as well as 5G support and a slightly larger battery. To compete with folding smartphones, the device offers a case accessory known as "LG DualScreen", which contains a second, 6.2-inch 1080p display panel. It is powered using pogo pin connectors on the phone, but communicates wirelessly.[3]

Software[edit]

The V50 ships with Android 9.0 "Pie".[4]

Reception[edit]

Digital Trends was unimpressed by the V50, concluding that "the promise of 5G may not be enough to stir interest in the uninspired LG V50 ThinQ." Chokkattu had mixed feelings, stating that "we found the image quality to be lacking when compared to competitors" and criticizing the user interface as being "clunky and cluttered", while also praising the second screen for having a "polished experience".[5]
