Prolific device leaker Evan Blass has shared a leaked render of LG’s upcoming G8 ThinQ flagship smartphone.
As you can see from the render, seen below, the G8 ThinQ will feature an iPhone X-style notch. In a recently issued press release, LG confirmed the G8 will feature built-in face authentication thanks to the addition of a time-of-flight camera. That part of the smartphone is clearly visible in the image Blass shared. LG has also teased that its next smartphone will feature a touchless gesture-based navigation mode.
On its back, the G8 features a rear-facing capacitive fingerprint sensor, as well as a dual camera array. Along the bottom of the device, we see that the G8 will continue to feature a headphone jack, as well as a USB-C port for data transfer and charging purposes.

In conjunction with another recent leak from XDA Developers, it appears LG will offer the G8 in at least two different colours: black, as seen above, and a graphite-like colour.
Earlier this week, a Reddit leak, courtesy of an employee at a Canadian retailer, suggested the upcoming smartphone will cost $1,200 off contract in Canada.
LG will likely launch the G8 at its upcoming Mobile World Congress keynote, which is scheduled for February 24th. At the same event, the company has promised to unveil its first 5G-capable smartphone. It’s currently unclear if the G8 will include 5G connectivity.
