2018 was a busy year for LG. In addition to the LG G7 ThinQ, we’ve also seen the LG V30S ThinQ, the LG V35 ThinQ, and even the LG V40 ThinQ. Despite this release roster, it still had time to think about the LG G8 ThinQ, and rumors about its existence and release have started to spread. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming LG G8 ThinQ.

What will the LG G8 look like? We may finally have a pretty good idea. Noted Twitter leaker Evan Blass has posted a picture of the G8 ThinQ, showing off an edge-to-edge display with a relatively small notch, a dual rear-facing camera, and more.

LG may also be working on new display technology which incorporates a speaker. This would mean the elimination of a traditional speaker in favor of an on-screen speaker system. Other reports claimed this may not be ready for 2019, but a recent tweet from leaker Steve H. makes claims to the contrary, citing a source who says we’ll see this “Sound on Display” technology in the G8. After the G7 introduced the impressive Boombox speaker, this could be the natural next step.

The LG G8 ThinQ’s screen may also have an impressive resolution. LG may use a 4K LCD screen on the G8, according to an unsubstantiated rumor from phone leaker Ice Universe.
