LG G8 ThinQ specifications The LG G8 ThinQ comes with a 6.1-inch FullVision OLED display with 1440x3120 pixel resolution. The same 3D camera can also be used for more secure Face unlock. The company has not announced the pricing of this handset yet and could be launched after the LG G8 family hits the market.
In line with the V series thin design, the V50 is just 8.33m thick, while still meeting U.S. military MIL-STD 810G standards for durability.
At the back, you get a 12 MP (f/1.5) standard/wide, 12 MP (f/2.4) telephoto and a 16 MP (f/1.9) ultra wide camera, which is pretty much in line with its successor. Once a palm is registered, users can hold their hand between 150 and 200mm above the G8 ThinQ's display notch to unlock their device. The dual screen feature again is brought about by a case with an OLED panel attached to it, which means there is none of the foldable display thing there. In addition, there's also Master Quality Authenticated technology. The devices additionally come with Air Motion feature for air gestures and will come in Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue and Carmine Red colours. The best bit? If that's not quite enough for you, you can add a 6.1-inch add-on screen / gamepad which gives LG twice the screen real estate on the V50 ThinQ without stepping directly into the foldable space.
The dual camera set up in the front for selfies comprises of an 8MP and a 5MP sensor. Just like the G8, there is 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-boot storage.
The 5G-enabled smartphone comes with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED full vision display, "video depth control" in the front and rear cameras ensuring focus on moving subjects. It need not be charged separately as it draws power from phone's battery itself.
As for the rest of the phone's specs, it boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 with a Snapdragon X50 modem, which makes it ready for the 5G era. There's a Snapdragon 855, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
Beyond that, the phone also sports the same rear camera array as the V40, with a 16MP superwide sensor, 12MP primary sensor, and 12MP telephoto.
Speaking of audio, LG has also included a Boombox Speaker feature with the G8 ThinQ that's capable of stereo output.
The new palm-reading feature required intensive training in order to get the hang of the specific hand gestures needed to activate the sensors.
As such we expect other manufacturers, who can not invest in foldable display technology, will also adopt this tactic for their flagship devices moving forward, and debut a cover accessory with a built-in secondary display.
It is still unknown if and when these devices will be launched in India.
The LG G8 ThinQ's design comes as no surprise - not for those that followed the leaks anyway - but LG's new G Series flagship has some interesting software functions.
