A couple of days ago, the LG G8 specifications were surfaced on the internet which suggests that the smartphone looks similar to LG G7 Thin Q. Previously, it was rumoured that the LG G8 expected to be showcased at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. But, a new report is claiming that LG might launch the G8 before the MWC 2019. As per the new reports, it is being speculated that the LG G8 would be unveiled on February 24 at 10 AM CET or 2:30 pm IST. The report further reveals that the LG G8 could be equipped with features such dew drop display 6GB of RAM and Android 9.0 Pie OS out of the box.
After the launch of LG V40 ThinQ in India which will be available for purchase from January 20 exclusively at Amazon.in. The recent reports reveal that the South Korean giant has started working on the LG G8 which is expected to be showcased at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. Just before the official event, the 5K renders, leaked images and 360- degree video of the upcoming smartphone have started surfacing on the internet which provides the hints and design about the LG G8. Other various technological websites are also saying about the LG G8 ThinQ so it is not confirmed currently whether the company would unveil only the LG G8 or LG G8 ThinQ or both.
As we can in the leaked images, the rumored LG G8 looks similar to the predecessor and having the same glass-sandwich design. Although, if we focused very carefully, we can see that the there are some minor changes- this time the rear camera panel is placed horizontally and it seems that the Laser Autofocus is missing. The circular-shaped fingerprint scanner is positioned just below the rear camera set up similar to its predecessor.
As far as the camera specifications are considered, the LG G8 is likely to come with dual- camera sensors on the rear panel. It is quite surprising for everyone as the smartphone manufacturer has already offered the triple rear camera sensors on the V40 ThinQ. However, on the front side the smartphone is likely to come with a pair of selfie cameras which we are assuming that similar to the latest V series offering. It has been codenamed with Alpha, which is said to feature a 6.1-inch display along with standard display notch. As per the leaks, the dimensions of the smartphone will be having 152 x 72 x 8.4mm
We can see in the leaked images, that the USB Type-C port, loudspeaker grille and a 3.5mm headphone jack is positioned on the bottom bezels.
The power button and SIM tray have been placed on the right-hand side of the device while the volume buttons along with the dedicated Google Assistant button have been placed on the left side.A small hole is available on the left-hand side just above the volume keys which could be either for an additional microphone or speaker.
The smartphone is likely to come with a 6.1-inch screen along with 19.5:9. Aspect ratio. The recent rumours also suggest that the LG is working on a phone with a secondary display “attachment,” but the detailed information regarding this device is not available at the moment. We expect that the company might offer secondary display “attachment”, in the LG G8.
Moving to the hardware details, it is being speculated that the G8 is likely to be powered by a Snapdragon 855 SoC. However, the launch event is too near most probably in the next month so would not be surprised if it gets Snapdragon 845 processor. The detailed information about the LG G8 is not available at the moment. All the aforementioned information about the LG G8 is based on the rumours so considered it a pinch of salt and the official details would be unveiled by LG at MWC Event 2019 in Barcelona.
