5G

When it comes to new devices, we want to spoil you for choice. That’s why we’re expanding the range of 5G-capable devices available. Our existing 5G* devices – the HTC Hub 5G and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G – will be joined by the new Oppo Reno 5G and the LG V50 ThinQ. Both premium smartphones offer the very latest in camera gear, performance and connectivity.

Oppo Reno 5G

Oppo’s next-generation flagship uses clever tricks and gadgets to prioritise an uninterrupted screen experience. The 6.6-inch OLED display is notchless, meaning that there’s no front-facing camera or sensor gear cluttering up the top of the screen to make for an incredible viewing experience. But don’t worry, it still has an incredible 16-megapixel front-facing camera that pops up from inside the body when you need it.

The Reno 5G also packs in clever gadgets under the screen like an in-glass fingerprint reader, which speeds up the unlocking of the device by over 28%. And of course, it supports 5G.

Make sure you check the coverage maps to see if 5G is available in your area.

LG V50 ThinQ 5G

LG’s first 5G device reimagines how you can use your smartphone by doubling the number of screens on offer.

Out of the box, the V50 packs in a primary 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display. In addition, it comes with a dual screen case, which allows you to connect a second 6.2-inch OLED display for double your screen fun.

The dual screen phone folds up into a single, sleek 183-gram device that easily fits in your pocket for entertainment, gaming and productivity on the go. Don’t worry about spoiling the line of your outfit, however: the V50 pops out of its dual-screen case to become a thin, sleek, single screen flagship.

The dual screens work brilliantly for multi-taskers everywhere. Want to watch a YouTube video and play a game at the same time? You got it. Feel like binge-watching your favourite shows while talking to your friends about it? Simple!

LG’s V50 ThinQ is also packing some incredible new speaker and camera tech for the best on-the-go experience you could ask for!

The 5G family

Samsung Galaxy 5G

The Oppo Reno 5G and LG V50 ThinQ join the equally incredible Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and HTC Hub 5G as part of our new 5G device line-up. 5G is no longer just a pipe-dream, with the announcement of our first supported areas for service as well as four brand new devices on sale in just a matter of months. Both the LG V50 ThinQ 5G and the Oppo Reno 5G are available from today. Head into a Telstra Store to see one for yourself, or log onto our website for more information.

The dual screen pipe dream is finally a reality! We went hands-on with LG’s newest smartphone, which not only packs in speedy 5G capabilities, but a folding dual-screen design to make your multi-tasking dreams come true.

It’s called the LG V50 ThinQ™ 5G, and it’s the first 5G smartphone to come out of LG. The V50 ThinQ has a brand new camera, speaker and performance gear aplenty, but the real party piece is its screens. That’s right: both of them.

LG V50 ThinQ 5G in both single and dual screen modes

Out of the box, the V50 packs in a primary 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display. In addition, it comes with a dual screen case, which allows you to connect a second 6.2-inch OLED display for double your screen fun. The dual screen phone folds up into a single, sleek 183-gram device that easily fits in your pocket for entertainment, gaming and productivity on the go. Don’t worry about spoiling the line of your outfit, however: the V50 pops out of its dual-screen case to become a thin, sleek, single screen flagship.

The two screens work together to provide true multi-tasking to users on the go. Speaking at the Australian launch event, Angus Jones, LG Australia’s Marketing GM said that he’d spoken to a number of customers about their use cases.

One ride-sharing driver said he’d be able to use two transport platforms at once with the phone in order to score more passengers throughout his shift. Another said they’d be able to use the device as a way to watch movies on the train whilst simultaneously checking emails and social networks.

We got a look at how the dual screen tech works as a virtual game controller for everything from the pre-loaded Fortnite to Sonic the Hedgehog.

Multi-tasking with the LG V50 ThinQ

Powering the new flagship is the Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM. Onboard storage is a tidy 128GB and those wanting more will welcome support for microSD cards up to a whopping 2TB. All that is figuratively cool, but keeping the tech literally cool requires a bit of know-how. That’s why LG has also fitted the handset with a heat dissipation system to keep the internal temps low and the device ticking over efficiently, even when playing mobile games over Telstra’s 5G network*.

And those after great sound needn’t want for a thing with the new LG – with stereo boombox speakers tuned by Meridian and an incredible DAC for audiophiles when plugging in headphones – a first on a smartphone.

The LG V50 ThinQ™ 5G goes on sale through Telstra from 11 June. Stay tuned to Telstra Exchange for an in-depth look at the handset ahead of launch day!
