Just a few months after the release of LG V40 ThinQ, the LG V50 ThinQ comes out with 5G connectivity. There’s also the latest LG G8 ThinQ, obviously using air gestures to control the device. That said, here are the latest LG phones to expect in 2019:
- LG G8 ThinQ
Even if the V50 ThinQ comes with plenty of features, the LG G8 ThinQ would be the phone to consider in the near future. This is because it features excellent specs, along with an improved camera and could be much cheaper than the V50ThinQ. LG G8 ThinQ It’s true that LG stepped into 2018 but it seems the trend will continue in 2019. The LG G8 ThinQ strongly matches the last year’s G7 ThinQ. The differences are like; 6.1-inch edge to edge display, with a top-end cutout recognized as the Z-camera [more on that subsequently], along with a tiny upper jaw bezel.
Interestingly enough, the bottom end is not a microphone; it is for the camera alone. Instead, the device utilizes the latest crystal sound OLED, or CSO technology from the LG, to replace the earpiece behind the screen with a piezoelectric vibrator. There’s still a Boombox microphone, however, that enables you to get a noisy stereo sound. Also, since the display uses CSO to vibrate on greater vibrations, it is very useful when pushed to your ear in a loud environment.
The bottom of the LG G8 ThinQ appears fairly sleek with a double-lens camera and the G8 ThinQ logo featuring a glass design. In fact, the glass on the floor feels mildly distinct from the front [Gorilla Glass 6 over Gorilla Glass 5] where the pictures are placed under it instead of standing under it. At the rear and at the top there is also a fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port, and a headphone jack.
- What are the Specs?
What’s under the belt is more important than the phone’s layout, and the LG G8 ThinQ is no fiction. The phone provides 855 processor Qualcomm Snapdragon, coupled with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. And if that’s not enough, a MicroSD card reader is also available.
It has a battery of 3500mAh when it gets to energy. When you arrive to believe about it, it’s not good at all, given that you should get through the day with the latest developments in battery conservation, the 3500mAh. You can use the Quick Charging 3.0 via the USB-C port to mount your device, or you can also use the quick wireless charging on this device.
Now that’s where you’re going to go home to the camera that has a bunch to give. Two camera monitors, including a normal 12-megapixel sensor with an f/1.5 scope and a 16-megapixel wide-angle sensor with an f/1.9 scope, will be found on the top of the computer.
However, what is important is the front camera. That’s what the LG calls the Z-camera, it’s an 8-megapixel sensor coupled with an infrared sensor called a flight time sensor as well. LG’s Z-camera can be used for a variety of different things, including facial recognition similar to Apple’s Face ID. The Z-camera can also be used in stuff like water movement, called Air Motion on LG G8 ThinQ. With Air Motion, you can simply communicate with the device without even pressing it. LG has introduced a few gesture-based shortcuts for much more comfort. Such as; the capacity to unlock two applications, acknowledge or dismiss calls as rapidly as necessary, switch off sensors, perform and stop songs, and so on. Although the function is not intended to be used at all moments, it is a good place to communicate with your mobile when your fingers are filthy, e.g. when boiling, etc.
The Z camera also allows the so-called’ Hand ID’ by LG. The device basically records the vein motif in your side using a technology recognized as infrared technology. It is highly hard to hack it, according to LG. You merely place your hand slightly above the sensor in order to use the’ Hand ID’ and the device will simply unlock.
While LG G8 ThinQ might be among the most recently launched LG phones, there are still other LG phones that are worth buying today. For instance, G5 and V20 were released back in 2016, but they still manage to be ahead of other phones launched in 2018 and 2019. Now, if you want to walk down memory lane and enjoy these phones, here is a G5 vs V20 detailed comparison for you to see what you will get.
The best part is that they are cost-effective and offer you value as needed. But one major drawback is that the Android 6.0 (G5) and Android 7.0 (V20). Besides that, these phones are still reliable enough.
- LG G8s Thin Q
Also, LG will publish another device called LG G8s Thin Q, which is not intended to arrive in the U.S. as it is intended for market development. The device still holds Snapdragon 855 processor, but it has a 6.2-inch OLED display with a 3350mAh battery. It has three lenses on the top, together with the same Z-camera, with a specialized “dark frame feature and low-light HDR technology.” Obviously, it will be at a reduced cost, but the price has not yet been stated by LG.
- LG V50 Thin Q
Five months after the release of V40 Thin Q, LG announced the launching of V50 Thin Q. It retains many of the same characteristics as the latest counterpart, but an unusual introduction can make it a foldable device.
There’s also the question of how much 5G transport from operators will price. No details of pricing have been announced so far, making it difficult to speculate if 5G service will cost much more than the unlimited 4 G LTE scheme you are paying for now.
The LG G8 Thin Q will be available in black, silver and red colors. A mildly distinct version of the globally marketed LG G8 Thin Q (it has three phones like the V40) will be available.
