LG Announces G8 ThinQ and V50 ThinQ at MWC

LG G8 ThinQ hands-on Palm-reading Android adopts smarter sensors

"We are thrilled to partner with LG to implement FotoNation's FaceSafe and 3D relighting solutions in the G8 ThinQ and bring these robust security and imaging solutions to market", says Geir Skaaden, executive vice president, chief products and services officer at Xperi Corporation.

The LG G8 ThinQ is equipped with a 6.1-inch OLED display with a Quad HD+ resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels while the G8s ThinQ comes with a 6.2-inch OLED FHD+ display with a resolution of 1080 x 2248 pixels. There are three rear cameras on all three phones but with different configurations. However, another major detail about the LG G8 has now been revealed: the phone will feature sound on display!

Beyond that, the phone also sports the same rear camera array as the V40, with a 16MP superwide sensor, 12MP primary sensor, and 12MP telephoto. LG has unveiled this new device which is powered with dual screen.

The G8 ThinQ, however, has been upgraded with what's called "Time of Flight" sensors in the front camera, which are able to read palm veins in a 3-D image.

The light sensor does something really incredible, it scans the veins in your hand though we can recognize your face as well for unlocking the device through the biometric process.

If you want to spend even more, there'll also be an optional extra accessory: the Dual Screen, a V50-exclusive that adds on a second display, hinged so that you can fold it over at any angle.

Up front, the phone gets a dual camera setup with an 8MP (f/1.9) RGB sensor and a 5MP (f/2.2) wide-angle sensor. It packs a 3500mAh battery and 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. This new feature allows the smartphone to unlock itself by scanning the veins in users' hands. The phone features a 6.2in (15.7cm) matching Dual Screen display and both the screens use OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology. Along with this, the LG G8 ThinQ boast of Boombox Speaker which are created to deliver stereo output with the help of Crystal Sound OLED (CSO) technology which uses the phone's OLED display as an audio amplifier.

Users can also activate features with gestures - for example to play or pause a song or video, or adjust the volume, by twisting their fingers, emulating the character played by Tom Cruise in science-fiction detective thriller Minority Report. A 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support provides the power.

Additional features of the device include Fingerprint Scanner, Face Unlock, IP68 dust and water resistance, Stereo Speakers, Boombox Speaker, Vapor Chamber Cooling etc.
