With all of the rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Pixel 3 Lite, leaks of the LG G8 have been pretty bare. Today, the South Korean publication ETnews has revealed just a few details about LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone. The phone apparently will have a waterdrop notch, instead of the iPhone X style notch which is included in the G7 ThinQ.
In addition to this, the device will apparently have a depth sensing camera, though it’s not entirely clear if this technology will be on the front or the back considering the smartphone will only have a waterdrop notch on the front.
ETNews also referred to the handset as “Seal”, which is quite strange considering the prolific leaker Evan Blass appears to imply that this phone’s codename is Alpha.
ETNews states that LG will be apparently launching the smartphone in South Korea and overseas by the end of March. If this is the case, it’s also quite likely that LG will show off the device at the Mobile World Congress in February, which is similar to the LG G6 and the G5 as well.
LG’s 5G smartphone, on the other hand, is most likely to be released after the G8, according to ETNews, which is targeted for South Korea, U.S. and European marketplaces. The phone is tipped to feature the new branding which is not related to LG’s “G” or “Q” series.
Last but not least, ETNews is saying that LG will reveal the LG Q9 in January, and the device will feature a 6.1 inch display with a Snapdragon 660 CPU, 4GB’s of RAM, 32GB’s of storage and a 3,000mAh battery.
