LG G9 or its replacement could be announced in May

LG already announced its early 2020 flagship but, breaking its almost decade-long tradition, it launched a member of the V series first, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G with Dual Screen. This naturally added fodder to rumors that LG is retiring its premium G brand or at the very least demoting it to something on a lower tier. Whatever decision it has made, we might finally find the answer in a month's time.

LG V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen apparently work with Active Styluses

When it comes to phones with styluses, Samsung's Galaxy Note is pretty much the only serious game in town. Yes, there are some that hide a stylus inside, like LG's Stylo/Stylus line, but these are pretty much just glorified sticks that are not exactly that different from the cheap ones you can buy with rubber or plastic tips. There have been a few random surprises, like the Moto Z4 last year. It turns out, LG might have a hidden surprise as well waiting for those who buy into its V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen promise.

Notes from LG this week suggested they're switching gears when it comes to smartphones in 2020 and beyond. Where they've been pushing a headline "G" brand series for the past 8 years, they'll fold two lines into one. Instead of releasing a "G" and a "V" each year, they'll just release a "V"... but they'll also have a new phone. So will anything really change?

LG G9 ThinQ may not be a premium flagship

LG has been pretty silent in the mobile space save from a brief moment in the spotlight last month. It announced the LG V60 ThinQ, the only flagship phone it has so far for this half of 2020.

It may still do so eventually but it will no longer be the high-end handset that LG's customers and fans have come to expect from that line.

A lot of video watching these days are taking place on the small screens of our phones or at least on slightly larger laptop and desktop monitors. That change in consumer habits has prompted TV makers to step up their game and make their panels more appealing both visually and internally. While not exactly getting into smart TV territory, LG's latest lineup of OLED and LCD TVs promise high-end features to meet every kind of use case while looking good floating on your wall, too.

LG V60 ThinQ teardown is a thankfully normal affair

LG V60 ThinQ teardown is a thankfully normal affair

Smartphones today have become more powerful and more sophisticated. Often that means that they also become more complicated inside as we've seen in recent teardowns, especially of the Motorola Razr and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. This also means that opening up the phones for repairs has also become a rather tedious process, which is why the first teardown of LG's newest flagship, the V60 ThinQ, is almost a refreshing change even if it's practically boring.

LG G8 ThinQ Boombox, Crystal Sound OLED speakers get muted DxOMark score

LG has definitely seen better days and has been largely outpaced by its rivals in many key aspects of the mobile market. It has, however, still held strongly to a few traits, like its ability and courage to make risky innovations short of foldable phones and its audio acumen. Unfortunately, those may no longer be enough to keep it from sliding down even further, especially when its most prized audio features on the LG G8 ThinQ may not be cut out for the job.
