Disappointing...still no news...like LG is really dead in Singapore.

While Sony, just resurrected with the X1 this month.
Easier to get from qoo10. Only $500+ after coupon discounts.

Got mine with the dual screen and have been using it the past 2 days, got to say its really an underrated phone, especially at this reduced price now on qoo10.

So far, no complaints about the performance, camera wise better than my note 8, battery with dual screen, i unplugged at 10am and came back at 12 am with about 20% battery life left.

The dual screen can be useful, there are a few things about it that most reviewers have never even mentioned. One use case is i opened grab and go jek on 2 screens and compared the cost directly. I use it to compare price lists, watch video and reply messages on the other. There are quite a lot that you can do with the dual screen, but it takes some getting used to because you have to consciously use it to find it useful.

If anyone have any questions about the dual screen, can just ask over here, I will try my best to answer.

Haha you may have to wait for a while, the only time I will even consider changing phone will be in December, when my plan ends.

Besides, this phone is awesome in a way where its a conversation starter, some people are coming up to me and asking: omfg what is that

Quick update:

Battery life is better now, disabled and greenify korean bloatware:
Unplugged at 10.45am, reached home at 11pm with 55% left, mixed use of dual screen, gaming, video, music, web surfing, 50% brightness and connected to my zenwatch 3.

Wired Music playback with DAC is superb, bluetooth music use DTS X helps in giving the music a kick to make it enjoyable.

Dual screen can use a mode called Wide Mode, it stretches the browser over the 2 screens, only works with chrome though, naturally big bezel in the middle.

This phone is announced in Feb 2019. Now is already September 2019.

If this phone ever launch in SG, it is an old phone already and maybe V60 has already been launch in other countries.

I have been waiting for so long. This scenario is the same as LG V30.

Maybe SG is not a focus market for LG anymore.

Sianz.......

V60 is already rumored to be dual screen focused.
Using the V50, i think that LG got the dual screen software pretty well done.
Now they just need the proper hardware.

Anyway i never believed that SG was a focus market for LG all along.

Besides the V50 was definitely a test platform for LG and that's why the V50 in US does not have the Pogo pins to use the dual screen. They are doing the tests in their own home ground in Korea first.

V60 with the refined dual screen maybe?'

The V50 itself is far from being a bad phone though, it has most of the top specs and great cameras, and with the dual screen function, very good package actually.

Qoo10 766 (excluding GST). seems good deal sia. + everything about 820.

I got it from Qoo10 too.

Without the dual screen its around 632(with GST) which is still really not bad considering you get mostly high end specs with good cam. BUT you do have other choices like K20 pro, black shark 2, Z6 Pro, Red Magic 3 in this price category.

The main reason why you will want to get the V50 is the Dual Screen case.

What i do get from the dual screen is a very ''interesting'' experience that is also functional for my day to day use, its like a glimpse into the future 1 or 2 years down the road.

Yah bro. I was also considering for the dual screen, just for the fun of it. in the end 820 sounds fairly reasonable. but your alternative also looks pretty good. The K20 pro looks pretty good sia and fairly cheap. 500 only on lazada.

That is actually a very good deal. How long did it that to arrive when you ordered the V50?
