For the past few years, LG has introduced its mainstream G-series flagship in late winter or early spring, followed by a larger, more creator-focused V-series phone a few months later. We saw that routine begin to get shaken up last fall with the launch of the G8X (complete with its Dual Screen accessory hoping to steal a little thunder from the folding-phone craze), and now that shift continues not with the introduction of a presumptive G9, but instead with an early new entry to the V series, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G.
As we'd only expect from the latest model in this family, the V60 is equipped with Qualcomm's top-shelf silicon, and arrives running the Snapdragon 865. That also spells 5G support: mmWave exclusive to Verizon, and sub-6 for everyone, including AT&T. LG gives the V60 8GB of RAM, a solid 128GB storage, and support for microSD expansion.
Speaking of charging, LG gives the V60 a 5,000mAh battery, and from what the company's told us, this about as big as we can expect to see from it going forward. The handset itself is just big, with a massive 6.8-inch 20.5:9 display (well, two if you're using the case). LG is back with another teardrop notch, while returning to the same sort of P-OLED fabrication used on the V50, helping to shave off a little weight. And like G8X, we've got another in-display fingerprint scanner.
