LG smartphones are not the most highly regarded devices on the market. However, you have to give the company props for launching a variety of phones that generally look and perform great despite their gimmicky features.
It’s unclear what new gimmick the LG G9 ThinQ will feature, but well-regarded leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (OnLeaks) has posted renders of the upcoming handset.

The upcoming smartphone will reportedly feature between a 6.7-inch and 6.9-inch display, alongside an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
Additionally, the phone features a rear-facing quad-camera setup with a dual flash on the rear. Furthermore, the G9 includes a centred small notch, similar to the G8X ThinQ.
The handset also features a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port. It seems the phone will have a top SIM card with a side-facing Google Assistant button.
Hemmerstoffer posted these renders in collaboration with CashKaro.
Going by last year’s G8 ThinQ launch, LG may launch the G9 at Mobile World Congress 2020.
Six days after the LG G9 ThinQ renders, we’ve finally got an official comment from LG. ?
“It’s sad that some still feel the need to create fake renders of products and then call them leaks.” – Ken Hong, Head of Global Corporate Communications, LG Electronics.

However, like most leaks and rumours, it’s best to take Hemmerstoffer’s latest with a grain of salt. On Twitter, LG’s global head of communications, Ken Hong, commented on the leak, stating that it’s inaccurate. To put this in perspective, the same thing happened last year with the LG G8 ThinQ.
Hong took to Twitter, saying that Hemmerstoffer’s leaked LG G8 renders were not 100 percent accurate. Despite this claim, they turned out to be pretty spot on.
Just in case you missed what happened last year…?
