LG’s next smartphone has a front-facing screen that leaves no room for a speaker. The solution: the LG G8 ThinQ screen vibrates to make the sound.
LG G8 ThinQ screen vibrates for sound
The LG G8 ThinQ is equipped with a ‘Crystal Sound OLED’ screen, as the manufacturer has announced. The top half of the screen functions as a sort of conductor, which converts the vibrations into real sound. In addition, there is a second, traditional speaker at the bottom of the device. The manufacturer has recently used the technology in his televisions, but the G8 ThinQ is the first smartphone for which it is used.
According to LG, the vibrating screen provides excellent sound and clear-sounding voices. How the sound sounds when you hold the device, or when there is a screen protector on the screen, is still unknown. We will probably hear that on February 24, when the manufacturer officially announces the device at an event in Barcelona.

Specifications LG G8 ThinQ already has known
Although the announcement is still a little two weeks late, LG has already released many details. For example, the manufacturer has announced that the smartphone will receive a front camera with Time of Flight technology for advanced face protection and better filters for your selfies. The latest Snapdragon 855 processor is running under the bonnet, the fastest chipset available at the moment.
Reportedly, the G8 ThinQ has 4GB or 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space. The display would measure 6.1 inches and use an LCD panel with a sharp QHD resolution. How big the battery is not yet clear. Rumors claim that the battery supports wireless charging. The smartphone probably does not support 5G internet.
