MWC-2019: LG G8 ThinQ and LG G8s ThinQ - only without hands

Together with the 5G-smartphone LG V50 ThinQ, the Korean company introduced two G8 devices at once - the LG G8 ThinQ and the LG G8s ThinQ.

They told about the first one in detail, the second one is described only in general terms.


LG G8 ThinQ

The flagship LG G8 ThinQ has a flagship filling -Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6 GB of RAM, a smart OLED 6.1 ″ screen with a resolution of 1440 × 3120 pixels. It is traditional for LG pfoboty jn djls b gskb (IP68) and meets the military strength standard MIL-STD 810G. With cameras there is also good, the audio component is not bad. But he is curious not so much with this, as with new possibilities of interaction with the smartphone.

No hands. Well, that is, with the help of hands, of course, but without touching.

LG has been developing this topic for a long time, in particular,not the first year, advanced smartphones of the company support the recognition of voice commands at a distance (not very large, but beyond normal). Now it came to the management of a wave of the hand.

To the standard fingerprint scanner and alreadyA third biometric unlock option, Hand ID, was added to a not quite standard, advanced face recognition system using a ToF camera. The smartphone reads the drawing of the blood vessels of the palm, which is held above the screen. For recognition, near-infrared rays are used. Blood hemoglobin has the ability to absorb light, which gives a drawing of a grid of vessels - as individual as the pattern of papillary lines.

Also included in the device chipset is the ability togestures to accept / discourage a call, shut the alarm, take a selfie, adjust the player volume, open the application (setting a specific gesture in advance). A big plus for housewives, who always have hands in flour, then in soap.

Another feature of the LG G8 ThinQ - the screen servesstereo speakers. The sound is reproduced through the entire glass of the screen, using it as a membrane. This technology is called Crystal sound OLED. And the smartphone sounds good: there is a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC / DTS sound supported: X 3D. Traditional headphone output - 3.5 mm.

The battery has a capacity of 3500 mAh, supported by quick charging Quick Charge 3.0. Charging port - USB Type-C.

With cameras do not get confused for long. The fact is that there are three of them in the smartphone descriptions, and two in the pictures.

The devil is in the details: point “camera” is equipped with an asterisk. The variation with the triple main camera is specifically designed for the domestic South Korean market. In the United States will be sold two-chamber version. It is likely that it is also intended for the international market as a whole.

Top Modification LG G8 ThinQ hasCameras: 12 MP with aperture f / 1.5 78˚ (main) + 16 MP f / 1.9 107˚ (wide-angle) + 12 MP f / 2.4 45˚ (telephoto). Which precisely lacks the international version has not been officially announced, but there is a suspicion that the telephoto module is cut down.

It is worth noting that LG finally guessed to make the camera flush with the back of the smartphone. Nothing else sticks out - and that's good.

Two front cameras. One - 8 MP with autofocus, the second - TOF, LG calls it “Z Camera”. By itself, it does not take pictures, but it serves to accurately determine the distance, which allowed to pump the facial recognition system (it builds accurate 3D models) and gives additional bonuses when taking photos with a blurred background.

Neither the date of the release of the smartphone on sale, nor the price of the company has not yet reported.
