LG G8X Expected To Launch At IFA 2019


If the reports are to be believed, the device will be the successor to the G8 ThinQ that was launched earlier this year. However, there are two key differences. New leak-based renders of the LG G8X have been shared. That's a feature that is starting to become common on flagships, but which LG hasn't implemented yet.

The first version of LG's dual-screen accessory was released in February, featuring a 6.2-inch second screen with an additional display that can be used independently that drew positive feedback from customers who favor multitasking like watching a movie on the main screen while surfing the web on the second screen. The overall dimensions of 159.3 x 75.8 x 8.5mm make for a longer and slightly thicker device. The camera module is accompanied by a flash and other sensors. We can assume that the biometric scanner has been moved under the display, while it also looks like LG is doing away with the multiple-camera setup that enabled the poorly-received Air Motion gestures and 3D Face Unlock. This could mean that LG could be using an in-display fingerprint scanner on the front.

Surprisingly, the LG G8X will not feature the company's Crystal Sound OLED speaker which we previously saw in the G8 lineup.

LG has scheduled its IFA 2019 conference on September 6 and we can expect the LG G8X ThinQ to be announced at around the same time since the latest renders appear close to be ready. It will be powered via the USB Type-C port and also has a 3.5mm audio jack. Coming to the buttons, the render shows the power button to be located on the left while the volume rockers are present on the left.
