The LG G8X ThinQ inherits much of the hardware of the original LG G8 ThinQ: A Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It also features a 12MP standard wide camera, a 13MP Super Wide camera, and a 32MP front camera. On the software side, the G8X ThinQ runs the LG UX based on Android 9 Pie.
LG’s take on a Dual Screen phone was first revealed in September at IFA 2019 held in Berlin. Rather than a single flexible OLED display, it’s merely an extension accessory for the LG G8X ThinQ smartphone. The 6.4-inch OLED touchscreen connects through the USB-C port in the snap-on case and is powered by the phone’s battery.
The second screen can act as a viewfinder for the phone’s rear camera.
When turned on, the second display can act as anything from a gamepad, to a presentation controller, or even as a digital viewfinder for its camera. It can also open two full-screen apps side by side, useful for viewing documents on one screen and taking notes on the other.
When the display is folded, it activates a 2.1-inch cover display at the back for notification previews and displaying the time. The display sits flush in a mirror-finished front that attracts a ton of fingerprints.
