LG is reportedly also attending the biggest mobile event happening in Barcelona in February and we may see the much-rumored the G8 on the stage. Well, the details of the device have already leaked but we hadn’t seen the design of it that could have told us how it looks, well, only until now as the renders based on CAD drawings are now out, thanks to OnLeaks in collaboration with 91Mobiles.
The LG G8 renders show the same glass-sandwich design like its predecessor. But there are a few subtle changes, like the camera module on the back is now placed horizontally and it seems to be missing the Laser Autofocus as well. The fingerprint scanner continues to be present on the rear.
The camera module seems to be holding the two cameras and this is surprising as the company has already started supporting the triple cameras with the LG V40 ThinQ. On the front, there’ a pair of selfie cameras that we can expect to be the same as the latest V series. The tech site, 91Mobiles cites the tipster and reports that the phone measures roughly 152x72x8.4mm. Renders also show USB Type-C port, loudspeaker grille, and a 3.5mm audio socket at the bottom. On the left side, there’s a dedicated Google Assistant button along with the volume buttons.
Going by the previous leaks, the LG G8 may include a Sound on Display technology and 3D face scanning as well.
LG is also expected to bring an attachable accessory that will add another screen, thus we may see a phone with two screens, but don’t assume it to be the foldable phone. And, the report from CNet claims that this phone will launch at MWC 2019 event.
