Could a dual-screen smartphone actually be better than a folding one? LG thinks so, and that’s why they’ve unveiled the G8X ThinQ at IFA 2019. Simply put, it consists of two separate displays connected by a hinge mechanism via a USB-C link. Both displays measure 6.4″ and boast a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, while a 2.1-inch screen in the back makes sure you don’t miss any notifications. There’s also an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the contrast to maximize image details and reduce eye strain. Read more for a hands-on video, additional pictures and information.
Despite its dual display setup, the smartphone is on slouch in the power department, as it boasts a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, DTS:X 3D Surround Sound, a 4,000 mAh capacity battery, a dual-lens 12 MP + 13 MP camera setup out back, and a single-lens, front-facing 32MP camera up front. Best of all, Android games with support for the Android controller API means that you can have the controls work on the second display while you play on the first one. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability.
