With MWC 2019 just around the corner, renders from LG’s camp have started to emerge. Today, following a series of previous renders and concepts, Evan Blass has put everything to rest by releasing renders of LG’s upcoming G8 ThinQ renders today.
Renders released by the tipster showcase the device from pretty much every angle you could think of. Not only do we get a good glimpse of the front and back, but also, all four sides of the device.
According to the high-quality renders released by the tipster, it seems like LG isn’t ready to ditch the goldie-lock notch yet. Just like the G7 ThinQ from last year, it seems like LG would be continuing their usual design forward. Apart from that, we get to see the excellent large display along with minimal bezels across the board with the exception of fairly well-trimmed bezels on top and bottom of the device.
On the back, it seems like LG plans to head into 2019 with a dual-camera dilemma, with the leaks suggesting not only a dual camera setup, but also a physical fingerprint sensor at the back.
While the device may seem to be fairly “LG” on the outside, Evan Blass further revealed that the LG G8 ThinQ should not be judged by the renders but by the feature set LG is planning to introduce with the LG G8 ThinQ this year.
I withhold judgment on a handset’s value until I’ve at least seen it in person and had a quick play. Back when this first leaked, I felt that the design was not competitive for a 2019 flagship, and the larger images only reinforce that.

However, The calculus could change with the inclusion of other standout features like 4K. LG has been known to push the technological envelope, and that’s when their devices are the best, IMHO.
Taking a close look at the sides reveal the single speaker at the bottom as well as a headphone jack flanked by a Type-C port at the bottom. Furthermore, like previous releases, we also get to see a dedicated AI button as well as volume up and down keys on the left side of the device.
For now, we’re curious about what LG plans to bring to the table to such a pale-looking device. And by the looks of it, seems like something good could be coming down the line.
