[OFFICIAL] LG V50
 
LG rumored to unveil 5G-enabled V50 alongside G8 next month

https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/CDPw...957_0135.0.jpg

Next month’s Mobile World Congress is shaping up to be an interesting one for LG, with the South Korean company now rumored to be unveiling two handsets at the show: the LG G8 ThinQ and a second, higher-end, 5G-enabled device, possibly the LG V50 ThinQ 5G.

This latter rumor comes from Korea’s ETNews, which says the LG V50 will feature a 6-inch display, 7nm Snapdragon 855 chipset with vapor-chamber cooling, and 4,000mAh battery. More importantly, says ETNews, it’ll have a 5G modem.

If the V50 does land at MWC, it’ll be arriving sooner than expected. The V40 and its five cameras only launched last fall, and we weren’t expecting an update to LG’s highest-end line until the same time this year. But, speeding up the launch cadence would make sense if LG wants to keep up with Samsung, which has promised a 5G device in the first half of 2019. And LG said it will push “5G products and smartphones” this year in its latest earnings report.

A quick turnaround, though, could end up disappointing some. If LG is only changing the processor and modem for the V50, the end result could be an iterative device like the V35.

ETNews says the V50 will be available in select North American and European markets from March. This matches what we’ve heard from carrier Sprint, which said last August it was working with LG to release a 5G handset some time in the first half of this year. We’ll know more at LG’s MWC event, February 24th.

We’re all expecting South Korean tech giant LG to unveil the LG G8 at MWC 2019, but a new report suggests that the company will also use the moment to lift the lid on its 5G-supporting LG V50 ThinQ at the same time.

The LG G8 looks like it has an awful lot going for it, but use of 5G networks is not one of them. The idea of launching the V50 ThinQ at the same time is apparently so it can go toe to toe with the 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy S10

LG’s first 5G phone just leaked — here’s the V50 ThinQ

https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/GheQ...wide_mod.0.jpg

OK, I’m about convinced that Vlad is right: phone manufacturers aren’t even trying anymore. Hot on the heels of learning practically everything Samsung could possibly announce at its Galaxy S10 press conference later this month, including up to five phones and an entire wearables lineup, we're now leaning that LG’s new superphone — the LG V50 ThinQ — has just broken cover. It turns an entire trail of bread crumbs into a remarkably decent picture of a phone worth watching for.

We knew that LG was bringing a 5G smartphone to Sprint in the first half of 2019, and separately, we’d heard that the company might debut its rumored, 5G-equipped V50 superphone alongside the likely-to-be-more-reasonably-priced LG G8 at Mobile World Congress later this month.

But now, prominent phone leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) has given us what’s almost certainly our full first press pictures of the V50, and it seems those two reports are describing the same thing. The LG V50 ThinQ appears to be headed to Sprint’s 5G nacent network, and we should see an announcement on February 24.

IMO V50 is just a marketing gimmick for LG to show that it's also making 5G devices

Other than that feels like a V40 with a bit larger battery capacity. Even the camera hardware looks like zero improvements over the V40. Quad DAC by now already more or less as good as it gets and is also a feature that G series have.

Wish the V series can go back to the sturdy durable build with the metal and second screen, now it just looks like a larger G series and has really lost its unique identity

Doesn't seems an upgrade from V40 beside the SD855 + 5G. Meh.

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:s13:

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.

mousehunt 02-09-2019 11:11 AM

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.......

rhexis07 02-09-2019 04:11 PM

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

Quite tempted to get....

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?:s22:'

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.

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.:D

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.

kazxenon 02-09-2019 11:44 PM

Ya nowadays the chinese really push down the prices. 855 processor nowadays is like free for all, 500 bucks can get one already

If you can buy from China Jindong and collect in China, sometimes even cheaper cos constantly got sale
