LG G8 ThinQ Crystal Sound uses OLED screen as speaker, amplifier

It's just a week before MWC 2019 starts but although a bit later than usual, LG has dropped yet another not so subtle feature teaser for the G8 ThinQ. Last week, it revealed that the smartphone will have the industry's first 3D time-of-flight front-facing camera. Given the space that component might have taken up, LG may have been forced to skip the earpiece speaker. Instead, it will be using Crystal Sound OLED or CSO which, in a nutshell, turns the screen into a speaker and an amplifier.

LG G8 ThinQ could be a breath of fresh air in a storm of changes

Some are just counting down the days to the next flood of mobile announcements that will make headlines. In seven days, Samsung will make a bit splash with both the Galaxy S10 and its foldable phone. The others will follow a few days later, each with their own gimmick or shiny new feature.

LG G8 ThinQ price leak raises the stakes

LG has recently reported a not so small loss in its mobile business but while that's not going to put the entire company out of business, it still doesn't look good.

With the stakes already high, however, LG may have decided to raise it even higher by raising prices to match its rivals.

With just a few weeks left before MWC 2019, LG has begun its breadcrumb-style of drumming up hype for its upcoming flagship smartphones. Last time, it focused on its first 5G phone, believed to be called the LG V50 ThinQ, which will launch alongside its usual G series flagship. Now the company has given that phone an unsurprising name, the LG G8 ThinQ, and is showing how its time-of-flight front-facing camera will set it apart from the competition.

LG V50 ThinQ 5G to launch together with LG G8 ThinQ

It seems that LG is really scrambling to make a big splash this year. For the first time ever, it will be launching both G and V series smartphones at the same time. Of course, they won’t be exactly the same and not just because they will look different. As earlier speculated, LG will be using the V line to introduce new technologies to its smartphones. Along with the LG G8 ThinQ, which may turn out to be quite “normal”, LG will also be launching the V50 ThinQ, its first 5G phone.

The LG G8 ThinQ seems to have leaked in its entirety, front, back, and side to side. This leaves a bit of mystery about what the top and bottom hold for secrets, but this is basically it. This device looks like it'll have a couple of slightly curved glass front sides, up and down volume buttons and an Assistant button on the left, and a power button on the right. This device looks like it'll have a fingerprint reader on the back, too.
