LG has been experimenting with some unusual smartphone concepts lately and its new model is having a release date in the U.S. today. You will be able to get the LG G8X ThinQ for $699 starting November 1st.
The LG G8X ThinQ is a slightly upgraded device version that started earlier this year. Like that phone, it has a 855 Snapdragon and useful features such as a key for Google Assistant. There is also a 6.4-inch OLED display that is 1080p and digs in exchange for an in-display fingerprint reader the facial recognition sensors. It’s also one of the few flagships with a 3.5 mm headphone jack that are still available.
The G8X’s real highlight is its clever dual-screen accessory. It adds another 6.4-inch screen connecting to the display and expanding the area you can use with new apps and more. Even a “laptop” mode allows you to type apps on one screen and display them on the other.
LG has partnered with AT&T and Sprint to launch the G8X on carriers in the States, but it will be unlocked as well. Beginning on November 1st, Amazon and some other retailers will be able to buy the phone. Also the $699 contains the free dual-screen accessory. The installments of AT&T lower the price as little as $10/month.
