The Mobile World Congress started last week and tech companies from all over the world have gathered there in order to show off their next-generation flagship smartphones. Samsung led the way with Galaxy S10, but now, LG has announced LG G8 ThinQ. This smartphone doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone since it was previously leaked, but what we didn’t know about it is that it will ship with ToF (time of flight) cameras which enable facial recognition.
Introducing: LG G8 ThinQ
As we clearly see in the picture featured above, LG G8 ThinQ looks amazing. The flagship smartphone sports a glossy full-screen design that is equipped with a display top-notch. This makes LG G8 ThinQ look quite similar to iPhone X and iPhone XS. Nonetheless, the design of LG G8 ThinQ is great, but can we say the same about what is hiding beneath its hood?
Under the Hood
When it comes to hardware specs, LG G8 ThinQ is a beast! The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s latest octa-core Snapdragon 855 CPU. This processor uses the 64-bit Arm Cortex design and the prime core clocks at 2.84GHz.
Not just that, but the processor is also paired with an Adreno 640 graphics processing unit that supports HDR and other custom algorithms that reduce the frame drop by more than 90%.
The Snapdragon 855 CPU is also coupled to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space which can be expanded up to 2TB via microSD. As if this wasn’t impressive enough, LG has made sure to equip its flagship smartphone with a 3,500 mAh battery.
Time of Flight Cameras
As previously mentioned, LG G8 ThinQ’s cameras are using ToF technology. This makes it possible for the cameras to use systems that measure the time it takes for photons to pass between the sensor and the subject.
