LG G8 ThinQ Won’t Be Cheap, Suggests Fishy Leak

Yet another price hike, eh LG?

New leaks regarding LG’s upcoming flagship, the LG G8 ThinQ have begun to emerge. And as we move forward, it seems like the LG G8 ThinQ may not be as cheap as many had anticipated.

According to a sketchy leak, it seems like LG is planning to hike up its prices for 2019. The latest leak comes from an anonymous user on reddit who has spotted the LG G8 ThinQ in their systems. The image posted by the user suggests that the LG G8 ThinQ would most probably retail for around $1199 CAD (US $930).

LG typically releases their G-series flagships around the $750 mark but it seems like the price hike this year could simply be LG hiking its prices due to how its peers have shifted its trends. Both, Samsung and Apple has been painting a new direction for the smartphone market. Both Samsung and Apple have made their absurd price tags a norm for the average consumer.

Reports have suggested that the entry-level variant of the S10, the Samsung Galaxy S10E, would be retailing for around the $799. And with LG’s underwhelming brand image continuing to dwindle, the LG G8 ThinQ better put something special on the table before its too late.

There isn’t a whole lot that has been leaked of the LG G8 ThinQ. However, given how well LG has kept itself in the game after a major of fans shifted for Samsung and Apple’s offerings, this could be a great time for LG to make a comeback. With more details regarding the LG G8 ThinQ yet to come, it would be interesting to see how the LG G8 ThinQ turns out to be when it releases in the upcoming months.
