LG Electronics said on April 14 it has launched its latest premium smartphone G8 ThinQ in North America in partnership with major mobile carriers, including Verizon Communications, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.


The new model features a biometric unlock system that recognizes the pattern of veins on a user’s palm. It also has a fingerprint sensor and rear cameras that have a flush, horizontal module. The flush module means the entire rear surface is smooth, with the exception of indentation for the fingerprint reader. In addition, the call-receiver speaker has been removed to allow the organic light-emitting diode panel to be used as a speaker.

The G8 supports DTS:X 3D surround-sound technology, which emulates a 7.1-channel system with or without earphones. It also has a boom box speaker that can turn the device into a Bluetooth speaker, allowing users to listen to music, make calls, and watch movies with a multimedia entertainment experience, according to LG.

Its Z camera, equipped with a front-facing lens and advanced 3D-depth sensors, allows users to get a sharp focus on a subjects while softening the background to achieve a sense of depth.
