The LG G8’s alleged successor has been leaked online by notable tipster OnLeaks. The handset is expected to launch with the moniker LG G9. Even though the renders show its design, we still don’t have much information about its internals yet. The device looks quite similar to the LG G8X ThinQ that was launched back in 2019. It has been speculated to launch with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a tall display panel that would measure somewhere between 6.7-inches and 6.9-inches. The CAD renders show a waterdrop notch and horizontally aligned quad-cameras with dual flash.
The phone has been revealed to measure 169.4mm x 77.6mm x 8.8mm and the images show volume rockers and power buttons on the left-hand side. Along with this, one can see a 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C port on the device. Interestingly, the leak suggests the presence of a Google Assistant button on the LG G9, while its SIM tray is placed on the top.
LG G8X ThinQ specifications and features
To recap on the LG G8X ThinQ, the device launched with a secondary detachable display that has a 2.1-inch cover-screen. The secondary display can be used to run multiple applications simultaneously or play games while the main display acts as a controller. The phone houses a 6.4-inch full HD+ OLED FullVision panel and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone depends on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The latter can be expanded by up to 2TB via a microSD card.
In terms of optics, the device offers a dual rear camera setup with a 12MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and 13MP Super wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture. For selfies and video calling, the phone features a 32MP snapper with f/1.9 aperture. It boots Android 9 Pie with a customised UI on top, which allows consumers to run apps on dual screens simultaneously. It houses a 4,000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Type-C. The LG G8X ThinQ comes with a tag of Rs 49,999 while the Dual Screen secondary display is bundled in the box.
