In August, we reviewed the LG Dual Screen, a clamshell case for the LG V50 ThinQ with a built-in screen that doubles as a miniature monitor.
Months later, at IFA 2019 in Berlin, LG announced a revamped Dual Screen with a few nips and tucks, chief among them higher-quality materials and compatibility with the LG G8X ThinQ.
We weren’t overly impressed with the Dual Screen, which lacks an external display and a high-bandwidth connection.
The Dual Screen’s design hasn’t evolved much from the first generation, with three exceptions we’ll address in a moment.
It’s now the same size (6.4 inches), aspect ratio (19.5:9), and resolution (2340 x 1080 pixels), and it exhibits none of the color imbalance we encountered with the first-gen Dual Screen.
Nifty software touches with the Dual Screen include the ability to mute content on one screen while increasing the opposite’s volume, plus a camera viewfinder that makes it easier to preview a photo before it’s captured.
