LG G8X THINQ and new LG Dual Screen Showcased at IFA 2019

LG Electronics (LG) has unveiled the LG G8XThinQ, its newest G series smartphone, and a more advanced LG Dual Screen at IFA 2019 in Berlin. Both the LG G8XThinQ and LG Dual Screen are designed to create a whole new way to multitask, enjoy content and socialize on mobile.

The new version of the smartphone has implemented  customer feedback including an additional 2.1-inch Cover Display. The extra display enables one to check the time, date, battery charge, notifications and other useful information without opening the Dual Screen. The first Dual Screen offered viewing from two different angles and  the new Dual Screen adopts a new 360 Free stop Hinge to allow for viewing at any angle, just like a laptop.

The G series smartphone has a  6.4-inch display of LG Dual Screen for double the productivity and fun. It comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It has automatic adjustment of the smartphone display’s brightness using sensors, an ambient light sensor also adjusts the contrast to maximize image details and reduce eye strain.

The LG G8XThinQ has a 32MP front shooter with a 1.6μm sensor on the back for stellar shots whichever way the phone is facing. For the perfect selfie, Reflector Mode ensures clearer, sharper portraits even in dark environments letting users adjust the lighting color to match their mood or preference. Available for the first time, switching between front and rear cameras while recording video is possible with LG G8XThinQ.

The G8XThinQ  has two 1.2W speakers delivering, balanced stereo sound while the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC tuned by Meridian Audio. On the recording end, the LG G8XThinQ features a microphone which is automatically turned up when capturing video to ensure that sounds are recorded in vivid detail for the most captivating, ASMR recordings.

The LG G8XThinQ shares much of the DNA of previous LG phones. Connecting the phone to the Dual Screen is now achieved via USB instead of Pogo Pins for a sleeker, cleaner looking phone when used without the case. LG G8XThinQ features an improved user interface with a cleaner design, refreshed icons and tabs such as Dial, Call logs, and Contacts moving to the bottom of the display so that users can get even more done with only one hand.

“LG Dual Screen is now a proven form factor, highly regarded for its practicality and the world of multitasking possibilities it opens up,” said Brian Kwon, president of LG’s Mobile Communications and Home Entertainment companies. “We’ll continue to expand the LG Dual Screen ecosystem through strategic partnerships and upgrade our innovation in meaningful ways to bring consumers a differentiated user experience.”

LG G8XThinQ and upgraded LG Dual Screen will be available in key markets in the fourth quarter. From September 6-11, visitors to IFA 2019 can be the first to experience the new LG G8XThinQ and LG Dual Screen for themselves in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin.
