LG has announced the LG G8X ThinQ smartphone as the updated version of the LG G8. Right off the bat is LG's first smartphone to feature an on-screen fingerprint reader. However, the South Korean company has also announced an enhanced edition of the DualScreen case for the G8X ThinQ.
LG G8X ThinQ arrives with 32 megapixel selfie camera
The LG G8X ThinQ arrives with a larger screen than the V50 ThinQ. It features a 6.4-inch OLED screen with a dropper-shaped monocle. Supports 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution. The screen integrates as mentioned above a fingerprint sensor.
A high end, regardless of manufacturer, must have a good chipset. Thus we have a Snapdragon 855 chipset along with 6 GB of RAM. We also have a native storage of 128 GB. Also featured is a microSD card for additional storage. It has a 4,000mAh battery. The smartphone runs Android 9 Pie OS with LG UX 9.0 interface on top.
The G8X ThinQ has a horizontal dual camera configuration. Includes a 12 megapixel main sensor with f / 1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization. It also has an ultra wide-angle 13 megapixel sensor. Also worth mentioning is a 32 megapixel front camera.
The LG G8X ThinQ features a MIL-STD 810G certified chassis to reduce to the most extreme conditions.
It is also an IP68 rated dustproof and waterproof device.
The front and back are surrounded by Gorilla Glass 6 panels. This device is equipped with a 32-bit quad DAC and a 3.5mm audio output for audiophiles.
However the new smartphone arrives with an updated cover. However it is a special cover called DualScreen. As its name implies it is a second screen. It has a 6.4 inch main screen. The panel also has single mirror like the G8X ThinQ. Meanwhile it also has a 2.1 inch monochrome OLED display. When using DualScreen with the G8X ThinQ, users can use the second screen as a gamepad or a larger keyboard or can also be used to access two apps side by side.
However, the DualScreen accessory has no battery. So it has the big battery of the smartphone. The accessory weighs 134 grams and adds a weight of 192 grams.
The price and release date of LG G8X ThinQ are not yet known. However, it should be on sale by the end of this year.
