The LG G8
ThinQ
is tipped to launch at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in two weeks, but
we’ve already seen a few leaks and nuggets of information. The
latest leak, however, may have given us a look at the flagship’s
recommended retail price.

A redditor
claimed
that pricing for the LG G8 ThinQ appeared in their
inventory system (h/t: Slash
Info
). The user also provided a picture of the listing, showing
the LG phone at 1,199.99 Canadian dollars (~$903).

The listing is for a 128GB model, but we don’t know if LG is
offering cheaper models with less storage (if 128GB is indeed
legitimate). It would make for a steep price increase over the base
LG
G7 ThinQ
model if this is the entry-level G8 though. Last
year’s model started at $750, albeit for the 64GB version.

LG in 2019: No more excuses

It felt like LG had a fairly anonymous 2018, as companies
like Huawei, Samsung, and Xiaomi dominated the mobile world
instead. However, the company certainly had its fair share of
headlines this year. The manufacturer started the …

So what do we know about the LG G8 ThinQ? Well, the company has
already confirmed that the phone will pack a
front-facing 3D ToF camera
. The technology is said to be

faster and more accurate
than structured light solutions, as
seen on
Apple
, Oppo
and
Huawei
flagships. This opens the door for better face unlock
tech, as well as better augmented reality and beauty effects. LG
has also teased a touchless
interface
for an upcoming phone, so it’s possible the company
is using the 3D ToF camera to deliver this technology.

Other rumored LG G8 ThinQ specs include a Snapdragon
855
chipset, dual-rear camera setup, and a rear fingerprint
scanner. We’ll need to wait for the launch to confirm all the
details — hopefully LG keeps the
headphone jack
, quad
DAC
hardware, and IP68
rating.

We’ve contacted LG Canada for comment regarding the leak and
will update the article accordingly when we receive a response.
