Weeks ahead of its alleged release at MWC 2019, LG’s new smartphone – LG G8 ThinQ’s images have been leaked online. The leaked picture of the phone was posted on Twitter by a renowned phone leaker Evan Blass. The image shows LG’s next phone from every angle.
Although LG has not confirmed if the leaked pictures is actually the phone, the company is going to unveil on 20th February in Barcelona. If it is true then its design and looks probably won’t be a surprise. But, the notch on the phone comes in as a surprise in 2019, when all the other phones are going ‘notch-less’ or are finding better ways to hide the notch. Furthermore, it is not the first leaked image of the phone, others had also posted an image of LG G8 ThinQ last month that was similar to the current leaked image. So, we can assume that this is what the phone would look like.
Rumor is that LG G8 ThinQ will be capable of producing sound through vibrations in the screen. According to a report by CNET the G8 will come with a special case attachment which will give it a second screen. There is also news that the company might release their flagship – LG V50 next month. There isn’t much information about the flagship of LG, but it needs to do better than its predecessor, the LG V40, which came with three cameras.
Last week, LG revealed that their next phone will be the G8 ThinQ and it will come with a 3D ToF (time-of-flight) depth front camera and it will deliver a ‘new level of front camera capability’.
Talking about the camera, Chang Ma who is the Senior Vice President and Head of Product Strategy at LG said, “Keeping in mind LG’s goal to provide real value to its mobile customers, our newest flagship was designed with ToF technology from inception to give users a unique and secure verification system without sacrificing camera capabilities. The LG G8 ThinQ featuring ToF will be the optimal choice for users in search of a premium smartphone that offers unmatched camera capabilities.”
There aren’t many specifications known about LG V8 ThinQ, but it will be a high-end phone that should have latest hardware inside. Otherwise it would slip down the charts because 2019 is going to see some massive launches from almost every top phone companies. And most of those phones will come with some impressive hardware and specifications. And with MWC right around the corner, we won’t even have to wait that long.
