LG's next-gen flagship V60 ThinQ 5G has now been spotted on the Geekbench benchmarking website. The listing does not exactly mention the smartphone name but the model number is shown to be LGE LM-V600N. Since the current-gen LG V50 ThinQ has the model number LM-V500N, it makes sense that the listed phone is a successor.
The listing reveals that the alleged LG V60 ThinQ 5G is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm processor and has "kona" motherboard. It is a codename for Snapdragon 865 which is the newest flagship chipset from the company. It is not surprising as almost all Android flagships come with the latest and best that Qualcomm has to offer.
It is further shown that the smartphone will have 8GB of RAM. It is unknown whether it is the base model or the highest model or something in between. The operating system is listed to be Android 10 which is the latest Android version. Lastly, the smartphone managed to score 898 in the single-core test and 3266 in the multi-core test.
If we go by previous leaks and rumors, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G will offer a total of four cameras on the back panel. The exact tech specs are unknown but these should be wide-angle, macro, depth, and standard camera sensors. It is further reported to come with four microphones and a huge 5,000mAh battery.
LG was previously speculated to unveil the flagship at MWC 2020 but since the event has been canceled due to the Coronavirus attack, we should expect it to make a new announcement about holding a stand-alone launch event.
