LG G8X to arrive as LG V50s ThinQ in South Korea

LG G8X to arrive as LG V50s ThinQ in South Korea

LG released a video invitation to its IFA 2019 press conference last week, confirming its plans of unveiling the next V series flagship smartphone in Berlin.

Shared by Pricebaba and OnLeaks (a reputable leaker), the renders show a phone with a tiny "teardrop" notch, which is substantially smaller than the full-size notch on the LG G8 - the phone the G8X thought to be a successor to, or an upgraded version of. We also got hints that a dual-screen phone, perhaps the LG V60 ThinQ is on the horizon.

LG still makes phones, believe it or not, and it has a new one ready to be rolled out in the next month or so, as evident by a fresh leak.

This is the first time since 2001 that Australia won a match at Edgbaston in any format of the game. Burns, who scored a century in the first innings, did not last long this time round.

According to OnLeaks, the G8X ThinQ measures 159.3 x 75.8 x 8.5mm and has a 6.2-inch display. First up, the LG G8X will feature a 6.2-inch Quad HD+ OLED screen with a waterdrop notch instead of the wide notch that came with the LG G8 ThinQ. The camera module is accompanied by a flash and other sensors. We can assume that the biometric scanner has been moved under the display, while it also looks like LG is doing away with the multiple-camera setup that enabled the poorly-received Air Motion gestures and 3D Face Unlock. This could mean that LG could be using an in-display fingerprint scanner on the front. There's a SIM card tray at the top which the bottom edge of the LG phone will feature a USB-C port, 3.5mm audio jack and speaker grills. The buttons on the right and left sides have power and volume controls, respectively.

The second major difference is the presence of an earpiece, which suggests LG has ditched its hole-less Crystal Sound tech from the LG G8, which used vibrations to produce sound through the screen.
