Hands-on review with the LG G8x ThinQ Dual Screen, an update on the existing G8 with a bundled Dual Screen cover. Here we take a stroll through the specs, test out the camera and play around with the secondary display to see what you can actually do with it. As folding phones like the Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X aren’t going to emerge any time soon, the LG G8x ThinQ may be the closest we get to a foldable handset in 2019.
That cover sports a third 2.1-inch OLED screen on front, to compliment the two 6.4-inch OLEDs inside, plus a 360 degree ‘freestop’ hinge. This mighty mobile is IP68 water and dust resistant and MIL-STD 810G certified, with a glass finish and dual camera setup around back. This includes a 12MP primary lens with OIS and 13MP wide angle shooter, with AI smarts, 4K timelapse and ASMR audio recording. Performance comes courtesy of a Snapdragon 855 chipset backed by 8GB RAM – not the Snapdragon 855+ sadly, but hey ho. And there’s a 4000mAh battery with Fast Charge 4.0 and wireless charging support as well. Are you tempted by the LG G8x? Stay tuned for a full review!
