Highlights:

  • LG G8 ThinQ to come with notched display and dual rear cameras.
  • It is said to have a ‘sound on display’ technology.
  • LG may launch the phone on February 24 at MWC.


A week after LG released a 13-second teaser for it next smartphone that will say goodbye to touch, a few images of a phone being called the LG G8 ThinQ have surfaced online. In an exclusive, XDA Developers says that the phone is the first LG flagship device of 2019. If the leak is true, the LG G8 could feature a display with a notch and thick bezels, along with a dual-camera setup on the back. Several smartphone manufacturers are now moving on to the punch-hole display and triple camera setup on their flagship devices.

The latest leaked renders show that the LG G8 ThinQ has dual rear cameras that are horizontally aligned like the LG V40 ThinQ. There is no word on what sensors/lenses the phone will have, but reportedly, LG may skip the telephoto lens in favour of an ultra-wide lens. The renders also show an LED flash and a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the device, suggesting that there will not be an under-display fingerprint scanner.

When you look at the front of the device, it sports curves around the edges. The volume rocker and the Google Assistant key are located on the left edge, and on the right side, there is the power button with the SIM card tray right below it. Previous renders showed that the LG G8 ThiQ has a 3.5mm headphone jack and single bottom-firing speaker at the bottom. Its predecessor had the DTS-certified BoomboxSpeaker technology for loud audio output.

XDA Developers claim that when they zoomed the photo, they couldn’t find the earpiece. This could be possible because the previous leak mentioned that the LG G8 may be equipped with ‘sound on display’ technology that would allow it to relay audio through its screen. Reportedly, Ken Hong, Head of LG Electronics’ Global Corporate Communications has rejected the accuracy of these renders saying that these are “not real” and that the renders aren’t showing the G8 ThinQ.

When it comes to the specifications of the LG G8, there are no solid reports which can confirm them but a previous report claimed that the phone could have a 6.1-inch display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. If the phone has the “Sound on Display” technology, then it is highly expected that the phone could have an OLED panel. LG is holding an event on February 24 at MWC and it is expected to unveil the phone at that event.
