Last updated on December 24th, 2018

Hot on the heels of LG G7 ThinQ smartphone, LG’s another rumoured flagship smartphone named LG G8 ThinQ Plus is ready to blow the smartphone market with its younger brother LG G8 ThinQ in Australia. For now, things are pretty blurred and it’s too prompt to say something about LG G8 ThinQ. However, rumours and leaks are circulating around and suggesting that LG G8 ThinQ will run on Android 8.1 Oreo OS with no defined timeline of an upgrade.

Digging down inside deeply, a gorgeous 6.2-inch OLED LCD will be presented with 3120 x 1440 pixels resolution at 463 PPI for immersive visuals. Camera-wise, LG G8 ThinQ is expected to sport a dual 16MP + 16MP rear camera having several dazzling features including Geo-Tagging, Touch Focus, Face Detection, HDR and Panorama. The front side would be covered by a 12MP sensor, though.

That’s it? No! This isn’t a complete story. We’ve covered every major factor i.e. its release date, price, and specifications in our LG G8 ThinQ review. So, let’s keep going.

LG G8 ThinQ Release Date and Price

The LG G7 ThinQ launch date was May 2 and made its way to its first buyers on May 31 in the US, UK, and European countries. That was an official release date timing. We’re still looking forward to the LG G8 ThinQ release date in Australia which is expected somewhere in December 2018 alongside its elder brother LG G8 ThinQ Plus.

We shouldn’t expect LG G8 ThinQ to be out until mid-2019 – if you’re hoping to see it in this year, don’t hold your breath.

Giving that the release date is so far off, there are not many concrete facts in term of price, but if LG G8 ThinQ’s predecessor is anything to judge by, it’s surely not going to be cheap. A predecessor LG G7 ThinQ sets you back around AU$910, so it’s safe to predict a slight price hike from here. A bunch of online sources is suggesting LG G8 ThinQ Price in Australia around AU$1204. Though.
