This leaked LG V60 ThinQ render might not give us the full picture
New leaks have delivered some fresh images of the upcoming LG V60 ThinQ, which show off a notch-style selfie cam and some super skinny bezels. We’re hoping the specs will be a little more exciting that the slightly bland renders.
The images, which come courtesy of Android Headlines, show a design that’s not strikingly different to other smartphones. Like other big brands, it looks like LG is stripping away as much as possible from the display to maximise that screen space. The selfie notch is a tiny little blob at the top of the handset and the bezels that run around the screen are barely-there.
Everything we know about the LG V60
Like the LG V50 before it, it looks like the V60 will rock a Google Assistant button on its left-hand side along with the volume controls. We’re guessing that the power button is still on the right-hand side of the model, but that is off-screen in the pic.
Basically, there’s nothing particularly big and bold about the design so far. But that doesn’t mean the phone will be as straight-down-the-line as this pic suggests.
The V50 had a dual-screen accessory when it launched, giving people the option of a doubled-up display. This isn’t pictured in the leak, but earlier rumours from Korea Herald suggested that we’ll be getting an improved version of this for the V60.
That’s the real accessory that we’re keen on seeing and could make or break the model.
Other rumours relating to the phone suggest that it come with Qualcomm’s latest chipset, the Snapdragon 865, and pack four rear cameras, according to SlashLeaks. We’d also expect the phone to be 5G-ready, given that the V50 had this capability.

As with all leaks, there’s a chance that these images aren’t a true likeness of the upcoming model. But given that LG was expected to announce the phone next week – at the now-cancelled MWC event – the chances are higher than usual that this is an accurate and final render of the model. Especially given the date that’s stamped on the phone in the image.
