LG G8X ThinQ, with dual-screen and 32MP selfie camera, launched
As a novel approach to foldable phones (given durability concerns around existing technology), LG has come up with a unique idea of a dual-screen phone. The tech giant has launched the G8X ThinQ with dual-screens wherein the secondary detachable screen is connected via a Type-C port. Apart from its unique design, it comes with dual rear cameras, 32MP selfie camera, and flagship grade internals.
The LG G8X ThinQ comes with a 6.4-inch full-HD+ OLED display which is connected to a secondary detachable display of similar configuration via a Type-C port, and not pogo pin connectors. The result is a full 360-degree tiltable screen with sturdy build quality. Up front, it houses a small 2.1-inch display which comes handy for checking notifications, date, and time.
The dual-screens on the LG G8X ThinQ sport a waterdrop notched design with HDR 10 support and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Further, the IP86 rated handset comes with military grade build quality and packs an in-display fingerprint sensor for secure unlocking.
In the imaging department, the LG G8X ThinQ features a dual rear camera setup comprising a 12MP (f/1.8) primary sensor paired with a 13MP (f/2.4) ultra-wide-angle sensor. Up front, it sports a 32MP (f/1.9) snapper for selfies and video calling. Further, the main camera can record 4K videos at 30fps, while the selfie camera supports 1080p video recording at 30fps.
Powering the LG G8X ThinQ is a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The handset runs on Android Pie and is backed by a 4,000mAh battery with support for 21W wired fast-charging and 9W wireless fast-charging. Furthermore, it packs latest connectivity options including dual-SIMs (Nano), VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Type-C port, dual stereo speaker, and headphone jack with 32-bit hi-fi DAC.
The LG G8X ThinQ is expected to launch in Q4 of 2019. The pricing and availability details of the phone are unknown as of now. Meanwhile, LG will launch the handset in South Korea as V50S ThinQ that will offer 5G support as well.
