Vibrates the OLED screen to produce sound *check sound section below for more details *

Source - https://mobile.twitter.com/evleaks/s...60802562351109

Battery - Rumours LG has increase the mAh of the G8 to around 3400 to 3500 mAh compare to G7 3000 mAh Battery Cell.
Source - https://m.gsmarena.com/lg_g8_thinq_3...news-35347.php

System-On-Chip - LG will be equipping its G8 ThinQ with Snapdragon 855 Processor but without 5G functionality. Don't know how that work but it's a 855 without 5G Modem I suppose.
Source - https://m.gsmarena.com/lg_g8_thinq-9540.php

5G or NO 5G - NO 5G, LG 5G phone announcement is reserved for the Upcoming V50 ThinQ which is going to be released on the same day as the G8 along side it.
Source - https://www.xda-developers.com/lg-5g...00mah-battery/

Sound - Same ESS Quad DAC from G7 / V40,
Yes 3.5mm headphone Jack is still here,
Boombox Speaker like the G7 / V40,
DTS:X 3D Surround Sound that emulates a 7.1-channel system with or without earphones,
MQA Support &
OLED screen with Exciter to Vibrate the entire screen to create sound ( similar to Sony A1 TV) that combines with the bottom Boombox Speaker to make a 2-Channel Stereo Setup.
Source - http://www.lgnewsroom.com/2019/02/lg...-new-g-series/

Cameras - Front
A Time-Of-Flight ( TOF ) Camera is to replaced one of the Dual Setup Front facing cameras & instead of 2 Cameras, now the G8 only has 1 front facing Camera.
No information about Main Front Camera yet. Probably Wide Angle Lens.
Source - http://www.lgnewsroom.com/2019/02/lg...flight-camera/

Camera - Rear
Dual Camera setup but there's nothing about its Megapixels Count or the CMOS Sensor size but probably will be a Normal & a Wide Angle Lens Combo.
Source - Google Search Image LG G8 & See for yourself

RAM - Probably 4GB to 8GB LPDDR4x. RAM speculations varies with media Site.

Storage - 128GB base Model same as G7 but may come with higher Capacity model.

wah... once upon a time forum for LG phone's used to be so packed just like Samsung's now seems very quiet... Checked forum page for G7 and max page count until page 23...

Anyway, am looking forward to G8's arrival and or more reviews as am shortlisting -

G8
S10
Pixel 3
P20 Pro

Need a solid night shooter and as of now, not many night shots available of the G8 in Auto Mode and Night View mode. Hope, more reviews will be released soon.

samsung just has a bigger fanbase so there's more dialogue and discussion there, even stuff like which colour phone is your favourite people will also debate

honestly LG and Samsung both arent doing any crazy new things with their G/V and Galaxy S/Note lineup now that the market is all mostly incremental changes

The hand ID thing on the G8 I feel is kind of weird and not sure what use case there are. If you're already intending to pick up the phone and look at the phone, a high-speed face unlock is the best. If we look at the history of gesture based controls, their use cases and market appeal has not been great (see how kinect fared)

yup, that's true. moreover, I feel LG has stopped believing in itself.. no unpacked events, mediocre marketing and list goes on..

couldn't agree more but presently, got not much of a choice as my existing phone going in and out of coma.

weird, is a understatement bro... I don't fancy its hand-gesture function either but wld probably, use face ID as suggested or the good old fingerprint ID. Hope it comes in Spore soon so can test its camera and decide on my next daily driver.
