LG officially took the wraps off the LG V60 ThinQ earlier today. As with the previously launched LG G8X ThinQ and LG V50 ThinQ, this device also supports LG’s Dual Screen attachment. XDA TV‘s TK Bay had a chance to take a look at this device before launch to give you his first impressions of LG’s latest attempt at a dual screen experience.

TK focuses a lot on the phone’s audio and video capabilities. In fact, the entire hands-on video was recorded with the LG V60 ThinQ. Though the video wasn’t shot in ideal conditions, you can get a general feel for the video quality and the audio quality. One thing TK mentions in the video is the new “Video Voice Bokeh” feature, which uses the four microphones on the phone to isolate speaking voices. This feature really comes in handy when you’re talking to the camera.

The Dual Screen attachment is a big part of LG’s strategy right now. TK doesn’t focus a lot of time on this attachment, but it’s essentially the same thing we saw with the G8X. The Dual Screen display is the same size as the phone itself (6.8-inches complete with a faux notch). LG’s approach is more like the Surface Duo than the Galaxy Fold, but the nice thing is you can always remove the second display if you don’t want it.

Again, check out TK’s video above to really get an idea of the video and audio recording capabilities. In a sea of phones with similar designs and specifications, LG has decided to focus on media capabilities. Will the LG V60 ThinQ be the device to break them out of the rut?
