We will find out when it goes on sale later this year - no price or date has been announced yet. The main highlight of LG V50 ThinQ is its "Dual-Screen" attachable display.

Smartphone manufacturers the world over have been making waves either by releasing 5G-enabled devices or foldable smartphones, and LG has chose to join the pack.

All in all, the announcement brings Telstra's 5G lineup to three.

The G8 ThinQ features a 3500 mA battery and comes with Android 9.0 Pie, it also features high end cameras. Additionally, the Z Camera can read air gestures, so you can control the G8 without even touching the phone - useful for when your hands are wet or dirty. The front gets an 8MP standard lens for selfies with time-of-flight technology for more accurate face unlock feature.

Apart from watching a movie on one screen and browsing the web on the second screen, LG will also let you use the second display as a virtual controller while gaming, which will appeal to mobile gaming enthusiasts.

Weirdly enough, LG launched both the G8 ThinQ and V50 ThinQ at the same time (we expected the V50 in 6 months). In terms of audio, it has supports 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC, DTS:X 3D Surround Sound and has a Boombox Speaker with stereo output. It’s an independent display that draws power from the phone and can be used to run two apps at the same time.

The LG G8 ThinQ sports a 6.1-inch QHD+ (1440×3120 pixels) OLED FullVision panel with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a 564ppi. Under the hood, the device is powered by Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor along with Adreno 640. The smartphone comes equipped with rear mounted fingerprint sensor and is backed by a 3500mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support. The RAM is 6GB and inbuilt storage capacity is 128GB, which is expandable up to 2TB via microSD card. Hiding inside the notch are not one but two selfie cameras with an 8 MP sensor paired with a standard lens and 5 MP sensor paired with a wide-angle lens, like on its successor the V40 ThinQ.

Telstra's Chief Executive Officer Andrew Penn said these exclusive device partnership arrangements will ensure Telstra customers have access to 5G handsets before any other Australian mobile operator when they are released in the first half of 2019. It allows the users to unlock with use of veins present in the hand.

Foldable devices aren't the same for every phone maker, and LG is showing it's thinking out of the box, possibly for more cost effective reasons.
