At MWC 2019, LG has announced its latest flagship smartphone, the G8 ThinQ.
The G8 ThinQ has a 6.1-inch QHD+ OLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 3120 x 1440. The phone has something called Crystal Sound OLED which uses the G8 ThinQ’s display as a speaker diaphragm, so then it doesn’t need a front-facing speaker.
“The LG G8ThinQ is the latest device to bring LG’s premium hardware and powerful ThinQ AI platform together to create an exceptional user experience,” said Ash Molaei, Senior Brand Manager for LG Canada’s Mobile Communications division.
The device also comes with the front-facing Z ToF Camera which can be used for 3D Face Unlock and also eye-catching selfies. There is also a fingerprint sensor and a USB-C port.
The Z Camera also has something called Air Motion, which allows users to use the phone without touching it and using gestures instead.
The LG G8 ThinQ has a three-camera setup, one 16-megapixel Super Wide, one 12-megapixel Standard and one 12-megapixel Telephoto.
The G8 ThinQ is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage plus a microSD card slot. There’s also a 3,500 mAh battery and is running Android 9 Pie.
The phone also comes with 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, DTS-X and speakers tuned by Meridian Audio.
The LG G8 ThinQ will be available in Canada later this spring but no pricing was announced.
