According to a new rumor, the new flagship of LG, presumably called the LG G8 ThinQ, will be presented on February 24th. That would mean that the smartphone comes much earlier in the year than its predecessor, the LG G7 ThinQ.
LG G8 ThinQ unveiling on 24 February
According to the generally trustworthy ETNews, LG seizes the evening before the Mobile World Congress starts to present its latest smartphone. On Sunday, February 24, an event would take place in Barcelona, and the smartphone may be in stores shortly thereafter. In 2016 and 2016, LG also chose to present its high-end smartphone, at the time the LG G5 and LG G6, during the MWC.
The LG G7 ThinQ was shown to the world in May last year and was then in stores in early June. The supposed G8 is therefore relatively early, although it is still unclear when the actual release takes place. It is striking that LG also releases the V40 ThinQ in the United States at the beginning of February. That device was already unveiled last October, but then only appeared in a number of countries, including the United States and South Korea.

According to the latest rumors, the LG G8 ThinQ gets a front-filling OLED screen, with a smaller notch in the shape of a water drop. There is also talk about a triple camera on the back, Snapdragon 855 chip and headphone jack. The G8 would also be given an accessory to add a second screen to the phone. It is unclear how exactly this will work, but it is possible that the extra display can be pushed out of a case, in order to conjure up an extra image.
