LG’s smartphone lineup for 2019 has been fairly lukewarm up to now. After the launch of the LG G8 ThinQ and G8s ThinQ, hearsay has it that it is planning on launching a brand new G8X (ThinQ) round IFA 2019. This cellphone is claimed to be the successor to the LG G8 ThinQ, which launched earlier in February, throughout Cell World Congress exhibition. New leak-based renders of the LG G8X have been shared.
The information comes within the type of leak-based renders by way of OnLeaks, in collaboration with Pricebaba. The photographs present the cellphone from just about all angles, so we now have a fairly good thought of what the G8X will appear to be, offered they’re actual. The very first thing that grabs your consideration is that smaller notch. In comparison with the LG G8, the G8X may have a dewdrop notch, which makes it look much more trendy. In fact, it is nonetheless not as innovative as a hole-punch or an all-screen design just like the OnePus 7 Professional (Evaluation), however it’s an enchancment nonetheless.
The LG G8X again panel seems to have the identical twin digital camera setup, which sit flush with remainder of the glass again. The photographs additionally present a USB Kind-C port and a 3.5mm headphone socket on the backside. The scale of the show is reportedly confirmed at 6.2 inches and the general dimensions are stated to be 159.Three x 75.Eight x 8.5mm.
The again can be lacking a fingerprint sensor, which suggests this may very well be the primary LG cellphone to have an in-display fingerprint sensor. As a result of smaller notch, we doubt there can be any superior facial recognition sensors in place, which suggests it should make do with selfie digital camera itself. The cellphone will proceed to sport the devoted Google Assistant button, which may be seen beneath the quantity buttons within the render. One of many leak-based render pictures of the LG G8X additionally exhibits the presence of a earpiece, which suggests the G8X will not have the G8’s vibrating display expertise for voice calls.
If this cellphone is actually going to be a alternative for the LG G8 ThinQ, then we will anticipate LG to go together with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, as an alternative of the usual one. We may see some modifications to the digital camera sensors too, though it is reported to have the identical stand and wide-angle cameras because the LG G8 ThinQ. Other than the renders, there’s no actual data to go on so we’ll simply have to attend a bit longer until the IFA commerce present kicks off in Berlin across the finish of the month.
