LG’s smartphone this year is really a bomb and the company now employed different ways that owners can interact with their smartphones, while also providing more ways that you can secure your smartphone. Without further time wasting, let’s see what this smartphone’s selling points are.
Just like many flagship smartphones of these days, the LG G8 ThinQ comes in with an outstanding body build. The smartphone is made of aluminum frames, while the back and the front side of the device is made of Gorilla Glass 5.
Like I earlier mentioned, the LG G8 ThinQ arrives with a design that we are familiar with. The smartphone has almost the same framing as its predecessor and there is hardly much to differentiate the smartphones from a distance.
On the back of LG G8 ThinQ, you will find the biggest difference between the smartphone and that of its predecessors, which is the flush, horizontal camera module, which comprises of either a triple or dual camera setup depending on the model.
Still, on the back side of this new device, you will find the fingerprint sensor which respond very well. You will also find the company’s logo and a LED flash that helps to give the images more light in a low-light condition.
The front side of the device is seated a dual camera setup which is above the 6.1 inches display. The 6.1 inches screen which has a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels, which results into a 19.5:9 ratio and leaving us with a 564 PPI density.
According to LG, the LG G8 ThinQ is sure to arrive in three colors, which is the Carmine Red, New Aurora Black, and New Platinum Gray.
The cameras of the LG G8 ThinQ has been improved and it arrives in different formats which depend on the model that you choose. Let’s begin with the back cameras. The LG G8 ThinQ comes in two versions one with the dual rear camera setup and the other with triple camera setup.
On the back of the LG, G8 ThinQ has seated the horizontally placed triple camera setup which comprises of a 12 MP, f/1.5, 27mm with an OIS, the second is a 16 MP, with an f/1.9 aperture used for taking ultrawide images, meanwhile the third one a 12 MP with an f/2.4 aperture (telephoto), which has an OIS and is capable of 2x optical zoom.
Like I earlier mentioned, there is a dual rear camera setup, but this is totally dependent on your market. On the front of the front side of the camera is a lovable dual camera setup which comprises of 8 MP, with an f/1.7, 26mm (wide) and TOF.
The old adage — don’t judge a book by its cover is just the perfect one to use in describing the LG G8 ThinQ. The smartphone may not look really like what it offers, this smartphone really houses an advanced piece of tech, though from the external view you may not be able to tell.
The LG G8 ThinQ runs on the Android 9 Pie, which is the most current operating system that is usually featured on current flagships. There is also the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor found inside the LG G8 which ensure that everything in the smartphone runs smoothly. Assisting it is a powerful 6GB of memory and 128GB of internal storage.
For all those folks who feel that the storage will not be enough for them, then you can further expand the storage with up to 512 GB using an external microSD.
The powerhouse of the LG G8 ThinQ is an impressive Non-removable 3500 mAh Li-Po battery. The battery is okay but it would have been better if the battery capacity was up 4000 mAh or more just like many flagship phones.
Nevertheless, battery capacity shouldn’t be a problem since because this device comes in with a technology that can make up for the moderate battery; and it is the Fast battery charging 18W (Quick Charge 3.0), which helps to add an extra battery juice as fast as possible. It doesn’t just end at that, there is also a Wireless charging.
