Yesterday, LG launched the G8 ThinQ and the G8s ThinQ smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2019. One striking similarity between the two smartphones is that the LG G8 ThinQ and the G8s ThinQ include Hand ID that scans your palms in order to unlock the phone. This happens with the help of ToF Z Camera and infrared sensors. The LG G8 ThinQ has a Crystal Sound OLED which, according to the company, makes the front speaker and earpiece useless. Also, The LG G8 ThinQ is IP68 dust and water resistant.
The ToF Z Camera leads to better Bokeh and Video Portrait mode. Over that, you can find a 3D-based face recognition on it. The best part about this is that the smartphone cannot be unlocked by someone else using your photographs. The pricing and availability of the LG G8 ThinQ and the LG G8s ThinQ have not yet been revealed. However, we can expect the company to soon come up with these details.
