The LG G8 ThinQ and G8 ThinQ will be unveiled at MWC 2019 in February. The V50 will supposedly feature 5G connectivity and will be available in March to fight the Galaxy S10 X.
The LG V50 will reportedly have a 6” screen and feature a new hands-free interface that will allow users to control apps and multimedia by waving their hand up/down and left/right. This will all be powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset with a vapor chamber to keep it cool. This is all fed by a 4000mAh battery.
According to a report from Korea publication, ETNews, LG plans to win the 5G battle with Samsung, Huawei, and Xiaomi by focusing on hardware instead of software.
Sprint is a confirmed partner for LG’s 5G phone, which is also headed to Europe and Korea, where it will sell through the three major carriers with a price of KRW 1.3-1.5 million (about PHP 60,800 – 70,200).
The LG G8 ThinQ will be unveiled as well as the company’s 4G flagship. This will be the first time G and V phones are announced together. Breaking from their usual pattern of announcing G in the first half of the year and V in the second half.
While on the topic of the G-series, the report also claims that the G8 will be the last of its kind and LG will introduce a new flagship line to take its place in the second half of 2019.
