LG announced its new flagships for 2020 earlier in the year. It wasn’t long after that we saw the LG G8 ThinQ, but now LG is finally bringing the LG G8 ThinQS to market this week.
The biggest difference between the two phones is the camera setup — the LG G8 ThinQ comes with a dual-camera setup, but it’s bigger brother, the LG G8 ThinQS sports a rear camera trio. You actually get a 12-megapixel standard camera, a 13-megapixel ultra wide camera with a 137-degree Field of View, and then a 12-megapixel 2x telephoto lens.
It has a slightly different display setup — the LG G8S ThinQ has a 2,248 x 1,080 OLED panel versus the the G8’s 3,120 x 1,440 display.
The hardware is pretty much the same, except that the G8S has a “32-bit HiFi DAC”. That’s slightly different language that the G8’s quad-DAC. We’re not sure how yet that effects audio performance.
More details, like price, will be revealed in the coming weeks. But, it looks like this phone isn’t coming to the US, at least not right now. This one is destined for Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.
