A simple solution to a complicated problem? LG is a major manufacturer of display panels and it also includes panels of organic materials in its highly flexible OLED technology, but nevertheless since the days of the G Flex 2 somewhere in 2015 we have not seen it try in the luxury niche of flexible and folding devices - even when we seem to Are on the verge of a real leap thanks to Fold and Mate X. It may be that in the future Korean society will look surprising with its own flexible designs and vouchers, but for now we accept the The updated G8X that offers a much simpler solution to the desire to increase the available screen space: a dedicated cover that adds a secondary display panel that is identical in characteristics to the main.

The LG G8X ThinQ features an 6.4-inch OLED screen and an 2,340 × 1,080 pixel resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, Dynamic 6GB Memory, 128GB built-in storage expandable up to one terabyte with microSD cards, Android Pie system, NFC built-in, built-in FM radio receiver, Stereo headphones, 3.5 millimeter slot for headphones and built-in 4,000mAh battery with support for 21 watt wireless charging and 9 watt wireless charging.

A tough, hard instrument with a central gimmick we've already seen on a number of occasions before

Like most home appliances In recent years, the G8X ThinQ also enjoys IP68 protection against water and dust and MIL-STD 810G military protection unique and unique for shock and shock - thanks in part to the glass-covered aluminum casing 5 on the front and glass 6 on the back.

More modest screen resolution compared to the original G8 ThinQ alongside Larger should give life A little more impressive, we hope

The new device's camera lineup will include a rear camera pair, with a primary 12 megapixel unit with f / 1.8 aperture key and a wide-angle optical image stabilization system and 13 megapixel secondary camera, and an 32 megapixel selfie camera f / 1.9 and support for - which is expected to be a decent improvement from relatively basic 8 megapixel selfie cameras in the G8 and G8S models.

The built-in screen cover is not included Another - and therefore likely to have a significant effect on, the possible operating time relative to the standard mode for working with a single display panel

Beyond the blessed increased battery capacity, the most interesting feature of the G8X is that it is not in the device at all - the DualScreen cover that adds a second 6.4-inch OLED panel and the 2,340 × 1,080 pixel resolution, designed to make gambling Tasking for much more convenience and efficiency. It certainly doesn't look as impressive as the intended solutions and- But hey - it's significantly cheaper and doesn't work too bad, according to evidence from the first experimenters.

Ensures its interface is as comfortable as possible with two separate yet close touch screens

LG's alternative flagship smartphone is expected to be available in Europe starting this November at a recommended price of 750 Euros, including the local VAT equivalent, with an additional 250 Euro price tag for the DualScreen cover that will still allow the manufacturer to boast that it offers similar capabilities to Fold in half the price. what do you think? Let's share with everyone!

Together with the DualScreen, the thickness of the G8X will be reduced to 15 millimeters and the weight will cross the 300 gram line. Is it reasonable to use such a product over time - or at that point does the whole concept crash to the floor?
