The LG V60 ThinQ is a curiosity at best. In a world of folding phones with bendable displays, LG decided to go a different route. Slap an extra logo and screen on the thing. When the company dropped the details about the “folding” phone last month, it neglected to give us a price. But now we know what you’ll spend to get a phone with a second screen—just under $1,000.
To be specific, Verizon will offer pre-orders of the phone starting March 26th, and you’ll get it with the dual-screen for $950. Naturally, you can also go with carrier payments of $36 a month.
T-Mobile plans to launch the phone this Friday, March 20th and even has more options for you to consider. You can buy the phone without the second screen for $800, grab the phone plus the second screen for $900, or go in on a buy one get one free offer. Of course, with the buy one get one free, you’ll pay for both phones upfront, then T-Mobile will give you monthly bill credits to the tune of $31.25 a month for two years to “pay you back.”
What does your $800 to $950 get you? Mostly, a mid-range phone. It features a Snapdragon 865 processor with the new X55 5G model, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage (and MicroSD card slot naturally), and dual rear cameras. It’s no Samsung flagship, but on paper, it’s certainly not a bad phone either.
The real question is, do you truly need a second screen essentially duct-taped to your phone? We’re guessing not, but what do we know?
