"Korean smartphone maker LG Electronics released its new flagship smartphones in Barcelona, which is hosting one of the world's largest tech events, the Mobile World Congress, this week."

LG Electronics has unveiled its 5G smartphone the V50 ThinQ.
The new gadget offers rich multimedia features through its Dual Screen accessory which tacks on a second 16 centimeter OLED screen to the side of the V50 enabling users to move apps from one display to another quickly with touch controls on the lower display.


"Now 5G means things are happening in real-time, break through the limitations of all the technology and bringing us a completely new experience that goes beyond just feeds IoT will become a full-fledged system that'll able to react instantaneously to one's thoughts while the combination of flawless VR and high-definition video, we'll introduce an ultra-realistic world previously unimaginable."

The company released its second phone, the G8 ThinQ during the unpacking event, in which it said the device can be unlocked without touching the screen.
Instead, the phone uses light sensors to scan the veins in the user's hand.
LG says the method is more secure than other biometric scanners such as face recognition or finger print authentication.
Chinese tech giant Huawei also showcased its first 5G foldable smartphone, Mate X ahead of the Mobile World Congress to take on Samsung Electronics' Galaxy S10 5G smartphone which was unveiled last week in San Francisco.
