What's not been confirmed is the design. In fact, despite all the leaks of the LG G8 ThinQ, LG's head of global communications Ken Hong has gone to the trouble of calling the accuracy of the past renders into question, suggesting things may not be what they seem.
The latest images to appear come from notorious leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) though, showing the same design as previous renders from @OnLeaks and XDA Developers. Blass is very often on the money with his leaks and the consistency around all the design leaks suggest there is some level of accuracy to them.
Based on the leaks, the LG G8 ThinQ will come with a notched display, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, dual rear camera and a 3.5mm headphone jack, meaning it shies away from many of the 2019 trends. Rival Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S10 just four days beforehand with a triple rear camera, in-display fingerprint sensor and a punch-hole front camera, for example.
Aside from the Time of Flight front camera, which will be beneficial for facial recognition, the LG G8 ThinQ is expected to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset supported by at least 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and microSD. Other rumours have suggested the G8 ThinQ will also have Sound on Display technology.
We've asked LG for comment regarding the Evan Blass images.
