LG launches triple-camera models V50 ThinQ 5G and G8 ThinQ
|LG V50 ThinQ 5G|
In previous years LG unveiled its G-series smartphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and the V-series models at IFA in Berlin. For 2019 the Korean manufacturer has decided to launch both new models at the show in the capital of Catalonia .
The biggest news on the V50 ThinQ 5G are the 5G-connectivity and the new Snapdragon 855 chipset. In most other respects the latest V-model has a lot of similarities with its predecessor V40 ThinQ.
At least on paper camera specifications are identical. The V50 ThinQ 5G features a triple-camera setup on the back, combining a 12MP primary camera with F1.5 aperture with a 12MP/F2.4 tele and 16MP/F1.9 super-wide-angle. In video mode the LG can shoot at 4K resolution and up to 60 frames per second. It also features all the manual video controls of the previous model. We quite liked the camera when shooting with the V40 ThinQ, which is still a pretty new device, so it seems LG did not see the need to overhaul the camera department for this new release.
The new model also comes with the same 6.4-inch 3120 x 1440 pixel OLED FullVision display as the previous generation and a dual-front camera with super-wide-angle and 8/5MP resolution. At 4,000mAh the battery is 20 percent larger, though, and audiophiles will appreciate the stereo speakers and 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, all built into a MIL-STD 810G compliant body.
|LG G8 ThinQ|
The G8 ThinQ features the same Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM and camera specs as the V50 but has to make do without a 5G modem and a smaller 6.1-inch 3120 x 1440 pixel OLED display and 3,500mAh battery.
There is also a G8s ThinQ with a slightly larger 6.2-inch OLED display with lower 2248 x 1080px resolution. In the camera module it swaps the 16MP super-wide-angle for a 13MP variant but otherwise specs are pretty similar to the regular G8. Both G8 models come with an 8MP front camera and a secondary time-of-flight 3D camera for face unlocking. No pricing information for the new models has been released yet.
