LG V50 ThinQ Dual Screen
In terms of actual use, the V50 ThinQ snaps into the Dual Screen like it would in most cases. There’s a three-pin connector that pairs the phone with the accessory.
The display inside is a 6.2-inch FHD+ OLED FullVision panel with a 2160 x 1080 resolution at 390 PPI. Compare that to the 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display inside the V50 ThinQ with its 3120 x 1440 resolution at 538 PPI and it’s easy to see the Dual Screen is a step down in terms of quality.
Where the Dual Screen will actually be useful is gaming and general multitasking. LG has created a Game Pad app that’s meant to be used alongside mobile titles. Basically, it turns one display into a touchscreen game controller that looks something out Nintendo’s DS line.
The software also allows you to change the look of the Game Pad with a few preset options, including one for racing games.
There are several multitasking features that give the Dual Screen some merit. LG was quick to point out the camera features first in my brief demo. The first, and probably the most useful is the Triple Preview inside the camera interface.
It’s exactly what it sounds like: previews of all three possible options for a shot via the V50’s rear lenses. The design of the case itself also allows you to use it as a view finder with Mirror Mode, saving yourself some awkward glances when you’d normally have to contort your body to get the perfect shot.
There’s also a Dual Video Call tool to make chatting a bit easier.
