Similar to the V50 and the LG G8X ThinQ from last year, the V60 works with a Dual Screen case that essentially adds a second display to the phone.

With the double screen, you can prop it backwards like a kickstand.

You can also display one screen as a virtual game controller that you can customize, multitask on both screens or expand certain apps across the whole thing like a tablet.

Keep in mind though that there's still a big hinge that cuts right down the middle. It will obstruct videos and apps in expanded view.

LG's first 5G phone, the V50, launched with an initial price of $1,152, so the fact that the V60 will be cheaper already signals that more affordable 5G phones are indeed in the making.

The phone is very large. If you have a small grip like mine, maneuvering with one hand will be tricky.

You can take photos with the 64-megapixel camera at full resolution, but there is also an option to shoot images in a 16-megapixel resolution that yields the same kind of closeup, crop job as a telephoto lens.

On the back there's also a third time-of-flight camera for AR and depth-sensing applications, like selfie stickers and LG's native 3D photo effect, which is new to the V60.

Unlike most high-end phones available today, the phone still has that beloved audio port so you can plug in your wired headphones.

As mentioned previously, there's no price yet on the V60. If it's going to be will cheaper than the Galaxy S20, that phone starts at $999 and £799 (or £899 for the 5G version in the UK). Since last year's G8X cost about $780,we anticipate the V60 would start around that price or likely higher.
