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.

I tried to find the cost ?,I have a sneaking suspicion,if you have to ask ,you can not afford it.
While we'll probably have to wait until we're closer to then to get full pricing details, the manufacturer has shared that the V60 will be positioned more affordably than (or at least very close to) the base-level Galaxy S20. Still, $1,000 is a lot of money, and LG has a lot of convincing to do to get shoppers thinking the V60 is worth it.

LG phones are usually great value if you wait some time after launch date. The price drops are pretty significant. Good hardware but software could use some refinement and they need to get better at providing updates.

The V60 might be my next phone if priced right.
