LG release dual-screen V60 smartphone
While smartphone makers like Huawei, Motorola and Samsung fight over the bendable smartphone market, Korean firm LG has decided to go down a different path; introducing the V60 dual-screen smartphone.
Unlike the recently announced Huawei Mate XS and Galaxy Fold – which bend in half via foldable OLED touchscreen – LG has produced a double-screened phone that flips open and shut.
The screen itself doesn’t bend like the others, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. While it’s certainly more clunky than its bendy rivals, it will certainly make it cheaper.
The bendy phone is made up of two 6.8-inch screens, which can be used in either book (portrait) or laptop (horizontal) configuration. Both screens can also be used independently, letting you run two different apps on each screen.
The back of the phone is metal and glass, and the phone is expected to come in two different colours.
The V60 comes with two cameras, a 64MP main camera and a 13MP wide-angle lens. You also get a large 5,000mAh battery, and Snapdragon 865 processor.
There is no pricing information just yet, but the V60 is expected to hit stores by the end of March.
