LG is teasing its new smartphone in a video right now. The 20-second trailer video shows a game mockup being played on a smartphone that features a small controller icon and a camera, before a second screen folds out and displays a map with a route to the company's IFA press conference. And when the device closes a third smaller screen appears on its front, which displays time and date of LG's presentation event. The attachment comes with a 6.2-inch display panel. It uses two pinks to connect to the device, while a third pin allows it to transfer the data back to the phone.
LG has already presented something similar earlier this year during the phone's reveal at MWC event - LG ThinQ's. It had a second screen accessory. However, the detachable accessory was never launched in the US. It didn't have the additional screen attached to its exterior, which appears to be a new concept for this version. Apart from supporting a Dual Screen attachment like its predecessor, the phone is likely to have 5G support as well. The V60 ThinQ's main Android rival will be the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, which is set to debut at an Unpacked event in New York today.
Beyond what was displayed in the video, we don't know much about the device. Not even its name. Android Police and ZDNet both speculate that the device could end up being an accessory for a potential V60 ThinQ, The device isn't foldable for certain, which a few manufacturers have been rolled out. Instead of a folding screen, both the V50 ThinQ's accessory and this new announced smartphone appear to feature two different screens which can be attached to hinge. The screen definitely don't bend like foldable device. LG's IFA 2019 press conference is currently scheduled for September 6th at 10AM in Berlin (4AM ET).
