LG G8 ThinQ review: Hands-On With the Hands-Off Phone

  • LG G8 ThinQ hands-on Palm-reading Android adopts smarter sensors

The dual model has a 16-megapixel ultra wide lens coupled with a 12-megapixel standard lens, while the triple lens model adds a 12-megapixel telephoto lens to the mix.

The V50 is available in black, and will be launching with 10 major carrier partners across the US, South Korea, Australia, and Europe.

LG V50 ThinQ specifications The LG V50 ThinQ features a 6.4-inch OLED display with 1440x3120 pixel resolution. The phone comes with a 6.40-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 3120 pixels at a PPI of 538 pixels per inch. The front-facer is an 8MP unit with f/1.7, 1.22μm, and 80 degrees, plus a ToF Z Camera.

Once LG's exclusivity agreement with Sprint expires "this summer", Big Red's customers will be able to get their hands on the 5G flagship for an unspecified price.

This setup sounds a little samey now (LG's used similar for while now), but it's worked to great effect in the Huawei Mate 20 and also been recently adopted by Samsung - with the addition of smart camera features like Night Mode, Video Portrait the G8 could be a photographic powerhouse. LG has included the X50 LTE modem on this smartphone which brings support for LG V50 ThinQ and there is also a Vapor Chamber inside the device for keeping the device cool by dissipating the heat. Notably, the selfie shooter is also accompanied by the Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor, which LG calls the Z camera. Take that Apple. It seems like the Korean giant thinks that Face ID isn't the most secure way to unlock your smartphone and fingerprints are obsolete, so the LG G8 comes with advanced palm vein authentication technology.

Nokia 4.2 hands on review
The depth map allows attractive bokeh, giving you the possibility to adjust focus in Google Photos after you have taken the shot. Nokia has fitted its new flagship with a five-camera array, which is arranged in a circular pattern on the back of the handset.

The Z Camera is responsible for 3D Face Unlock and Air Motion too, the latter allowing owners to perform functions - such as answering the phone or adjusting playback volume - without touching the phone, simply by using hand gestures.

We're yet to learn any concrete news on the new Oppo handset, apart from the fact that it will be sporting the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The G8s ThinQ also differs with the G8 ThinQ in terms of camera and battery specs. As mentioned above, the V50 is 5G-capable, and it also sports 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The smartphone comes with IP68 rating which makes it dust and water resistant and it also has military grade certification. Usual suspects include Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C.

Moving on to the design, LG V50 ThinQ from the front looks nearly identical to the G8 ThinQ.

LG signalled tonight that they're tailoring the G8 to different markets (which is hard not to read as "carrier requirements") with some differences in configurations and even the rear triple camera (on some models it'll be a dual camera). Since the two screens work independently, users can operate two separate apps at the same time.
