LG G8 ThinQ launched in North America
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.
