Renders of LG V60 ThinQ leak, showing few design changes from V50 ThinQ and G8X ThinQ
It’s flagship season for Android smartphones, and we can expect to see several announcements from OEMs over the coming weeks. However, it looks like we won’t have to wait on LG to unveil the V60 ThinQ before we get a good look at it. Android Headlines has posted a leaked render of the upcoming flagship phone.
The render, which is dated for February 24th, shows a consistent design with the V50 ThinQ and G8X ThinQ. The V60 ThinQ will keep the same near bezel-less language of its predecessors. Thankfully, the V60 ThinQ will drop the “bathtub notch” from the V50 ThinQ in favor of a smaller waterdrop notch, echoing the G8X ThinQ. While the bezels appear to be a hair thinner, it is difficult to get exact proportions from the leaked render.
It also appears that the V60 ThinQ will keep the dedicated Google Assistant button under the volume rocker on the left side of the phone. The render doesn’t show the back or right side of the phone. As such, the camera setup cannot be deduced from this leak. Considering the triple-camera trend for flagships, it’s like the V60 ThinQ will feature three cameras: a standard lens, a wide-angle lens, and a telephoto. Most 2020 flagships have started including ToF sensors as well, so the V60 ThinQ may hop on that bandwagon as well, though this is purely speculation.
What is almost certain is 5G support. The V50 ThinQ was a 5G-capable phone, so it would be a step backward if the V60 ThinQ didn’t also support 5G. There is also a wide consensus that the V60 ThinQ will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, 8 GB of RAM, at least 128 GB of storage, and a 5000 mAh battery. LG will also likely keep the headphone and expandable storage via microSD card, making it one of the few flagships to retain these features.
The leaked render bears a date of February 24th, which may have been the original announcement date. However, LG’s MWC plans were shuttered by the coronavirus outbreak, so the Korean giant may opt for an alternate announcement venue (likely a live stream) at a later date. There’s no word on when that will happen, but we should expect an official announcement of the V60 ThinQ sometime in the next few weeks.
