LG is finally making its high-end G8S phone available globally

LG’s Mobile World Congress 2019 event brought us the LG G8S ThinQ flagship smartphone back in February. Now, it is finally ready for release in Europe, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.

LG says the G8S ThinQ was created for users “seeking a more bespoke smartphone experience,” although in practice that seems to mostly mean that the phone has improved camera software for snapping more elegant selfies.

The G8S is largely similar to the G8 but with a lower resolution screen. The G8S has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, 6G RAM, 128GB storage and 3.5mm headphone jack as the G8, but its 6.2-inch OLED display has a resolution of 2248 x 1080 (compared to the 3120 x 1440 resolution on the G8). It comes in three shiny colors: black, teal and white.

The LG G8s ThinQ has Hand ID gestures which allow you to unlock the phone with your palm hovering over the screen. You can also turn up/down the volume with a rotation in the air; there is also the chance to wave over the screen to take a call or to take screenshots.

Pricing and availability aren’t available yet, they will be announced locally shortly.
