LG now has a successor to its G7 ThinQ flagship, it’s called the LG G8 ThinQ. I have already done a full review of the LG G8 ThinQ. However, new images have appeared online showing the full angles of the smartphone and it shows that it looks a lot like it’s a predecessor. This smartphone is an all-screen device, with a notch for the front camera and sensors. Consequently, the rear camera seems to have been re-arranged in a horizontal fashion.
Below the camera, the LG G8 ThinQ has a fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm headphone jack. These are features a lot of smartphone makers have decided to dump. However, it’s nice to know this flagship still has those good old features for our convenience. The LG G8 ThinQ has a new technology called “Time of Flight” image sensor made by Infineon. This new feature allows users to take better selfies in all kinds of lighting condition while using less power than Apple’s FaceID. It powers the smartphone’s Augmented Reality (AR) and facial recognition capabilities.
Although we can’t confirm it yet, rumors suggest the device will have a second screen. The leaked images don’t show the second screen but Engadget suggests that it’s going to be an attachment and not a part of the phone itself. Geeks like us don’t have to wait long to know all about the device. That’s because LG will officially launch the device on the 24th of February at a special pre-Mobile World Congress event. The device is expected to cost less than $1,000.
