Description

The LG G8 ThinQ is a high-end Android smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 855 chip. Among its key stand-out features are the front-facing ToF camera, allowing secure face recognition. Sensors on the front also allow the phone to be controlled from a distance using hand gestures. And instead of having a classic earpiece speaker, the phone vibrates its entire 6.1-inch OLED screen to produce sound during phone calls and while listening to music. Additionally, the phone offers a 3,500mAh battery and a dual (or triple in some markets) rear camera with a secondary wide-angle lens.
