On the front of the LG V60 is a 6.8-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a slim 20.5:9 aspect ratio. It actually has a slight step down in pixel density this year compared to the LG V50, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a big 5,000mAh battery in the V60 (same as the Galaxy S20 Ultra), and coupled with that lower-res display this phone should be able to last quite long on a single charge. It also supports wireless charging and Quick Charge 4.0 for wired charging.

Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and 8GB of RAM. There’s also 128GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot.

LG phones are always some of the best for audio, and the V60 is no exception. It has a headphone jack, a Quad DAC, a total of four microphones, and something called LG 3D Sound Engine which optimizes audio playback based on what type of audio you’re playing. For instance, if you’re listening to music the V60 might increase the bass, or balance everything out if you’re playing a movie.

Instead of adding more cameras this year, LG is paring back the camera experience. The LG V60 has dual rear-facing cameras, with a 64MP main sensor that supports 16MP 1.6μm pixel binning as well as a 13MP wide-angle lens with a 117-degree field-of-view. There’s also a time-of-flight sensor around back for taking depth information.

There’s also only one front-facing camera on the V60. It’s a 10MP lens with a decently wide 72.5-degree field-of-view.

The LG V60 is a 5G phone. It works on Verizon’s mmWave and sub-6GHz frequencies, but only sub-6GHz for all other carriers.

That’s about it for the LG V60 specs. Thoughts? To me, it seems the V60 is a slightly more toned-down version of the Galaxy S20 series.
