LG announced one of its more affordable versions of G8 ThinQ flagship smartphone in February, the LG G8S ThinQ. The company is now ready for its release in Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. LG has indicated that the G8S ThinQ was created for users looking a more bespoke smartphone experience. The phone has improved camera software for snapping more elegant selfies. The company used a new ToF technology in its latest version.
The camera of G8S ThinQ utilizes a Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor technology. It offers users a choice of convenient and secure biometric recognition options. Its design was targeted to be operated one-handed, key for capturing the aforementioned shots. The front-facing camera offers simulated studio lighting to enhance portrait images and give them more depth. The stand-out feature of the phone is the rear triple-lens camera setup with a wide angle lens. It has a massive 137 degrees field of view of any phone camera for a continuous zoom.
You will also find a bokeh effect and stabilization enhancement and it can be added to videos. The biometric sensors make unlocking smoother. It includes Hand ID which scans the circulatory pattern of users using infrared light. So, the phone can be unlocked more easily when it’s dark. It also has an improved Face Unlock and the intriguing but not very practical Air Motion feature. The feature allows users to perform actions without touching the screen.
If we talk about its specs, the G8S is mostly similar to the G8 but with a lower resolution screen. The G8S also has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and 3.5mm headphone jack. It is noteworthy that its 6.2-inch OLED display has a resolution of 2248 x 1080 and G8 has 3120 x 1440 resolutions. The smartphone comes in 3 shiny colors, including Mirror Black, Mirror White, and Mirror Teal.
