The LG ThinQ 5G features two rear cameras and a time of flight (ToF) sensor array, which includes a 65MP main camera lens for brighter, sharper images regardless of the environments lighting conditions. A 13MP wide angle lens is also available for more agile and all-encompassing shots.
For the first time ever on an LG device, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G supports 8K video recording for capturing videos in stunning 8K quality and jaw-dropping detail.
In addition to the latest camera and video innovations, the latest LG smartphone continues the company’s legacy of leveraging the best and latest technologies for superior audio sounds from various directions.

The LG 3D Sound Engine is also featured in the new device, which is an audio processing technology first introduced on LG OLED TVs. The Sound Engine recognises the type of content and optimises the sound accordingly for a more cinematic quality.

The new device and the upgraded second screen accessory come with sharp 20.5:9 ratio FHD+ P-OLED displays that are nearly half an inch bigger than offered in previous models.
The new Dual Screen also weighs the same superbly portable weight as its predecessors, despite its increase in size, thanks to the thinner OLED panel.

The LG V60 ThinQ 5G is set to roll out in key markets in North America, Europe and Asia starting next month, but the company has been tight lipped about an Australian release date.
‘At this point in time, we don’t have any news to announce about the LG V60 availability in Australia however we will share any additional updates on this going forward,’ an LG representative told ChannelNews.
It doesn’t mean the device isn’t set to arrive in Australia at all – it means consumers may see a repeat of what happened last year, whereby the company released its latest smartphone in Australia in its first few countries.
LG Electronics Australia have been contacted for comment.
