LG presents a practical alternative to smartphones with flexible screens

The situation in the smartphone market is changing rapidly: the newly-launched folding models already have a competitor - the LG G8X ThinQ smartphone presented at IFA 2019, consisting of two separate displays connected by a hinge.

The experts immediately highlighted the advantages and disadvantages of the new scheme. On the one hand, the foldable display does not allow you to use applications on both screens at the same time, but on the other hand, the hinge joint is much more reliable than a flexible screen.

The second, additional screen is a regular display. Thanks to it, there is more space on the main screen for icons and applications. Both displays measure 6.4 inches diagonally and have a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. In addition to them, the smartphone has a third, 2, 1-inch screen on the back - for notifications and other similar information.

Two screens make it possible, for example, to use Twitter and Facebook at the same time. They also allow you to watch videos on one screen and write a review on another at the same time.

The LG G8X ThinQ is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. A 4000 mAh battery is responsible for power supply. On the back there is a dual main camera with 12 and 13 megapixel lenses, and on the front is a single-lens 32 megapixel model. The sound of the LG G8X ThinQ will delight even audiophiles - the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC onboard is responsible for it.

The LG G8X ThinQ runs on Android 9.0. The smartphone will be on sale at the end of the year - at the same time its price will be known.
