There is an additional hole on the left side right above the volume button, which could be an additional microphone.
LG G8 is rumoured to be equipped with ‘sound on display’ speakers that would be similar to an under-display cantilever-conduction speaker. Citing a source, OnLeaks has confirmed the presence of the technology on the smartphone. This technology uses vibration and bone conduction to create sound directly from the display making the speaker redundant. There is no word on which processor will the phone flaunt, it could be the Snapdragon 855 chipset.
