LG G8S ThinQ With Snapdragon 855 And Triple Rear Camera Launched In India
LG has launched its new G-series smartphone, the LG G8s ThinQ in India. The latest G series phone is a concoction of innovative features that is sure to excite you. It includes a Hand ID that assists in recognizing the patterns of veins in users’ hand for authentication through the use of infrared light. It features a touchless hand gesture known as Air Motion that is aimed to perform several actions on the phone like navigating the gallery without the need to touch the screen. The LG G8s ThinQ is available for Rs 36,990 for the sole storage variant of 6GB RAM + 128GB.
LG G8s ThinQ: Specifications:
The LG G8s ThinQ runs Android 9.0 and is well equipped with a 6.20-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080×2248 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The LG G8s ThinQ is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC processor, has a MIL-STD 810G-certified build, and comes with IP68 dust and water resistance rating, coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
When it comes to imaging capabilities, LG G8s ThinQ’s triple rear camera setup houses a 12-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.8 lens, assisted by a 13-megapixel wide-angle sensor with a 137-degree field of view, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with an f/2.6 lens. On the front is an 8-megapixel sensor accompanied by a ToF Z Camera for features such as Hand ID, Air Motion, and Face Unlock for authentication.
It might be a bit disappointing for customers to know that the device is going to hold only a 3,550mAh battery, albeit with Quick Charge 3.0 support. As budget phones below Rs 15,000 in India are powered by 4, 000mAh batteries, this feature on the LG G8s ThinQ may not make some fans happy. However, with its host of other innovative features and a dimension of 55.3×76.6×7.99mm, the phone is expected to overshadow the average battery performance.
Other than this, it also provides connectivity options with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, Bluetooth v5.00, USB Type-C, FM radio, 3G, and 4G with active 4G on both SIM cards. Sensors on the phone include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass/ magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and fingerprint sensor.
