LG’s dual-screen device, has officially launched in Israel in parallel with its worldwide launch and the recommended retail price is NIS 3,299.
Recall, the LG G8X was announced at the IFA 2019 show last September and is considered an enhanced model for the dual screen concept that LG introduced at the launch of the V50 ThinQ earlier this year . Instead of a folding screen – technology that pits engineering difficulties, durability issues and a particularly expensive manufacturing cost – LG offers two OLEDs that are close to each other, with a feature-like and 6.4-inch identity, connected in a 360-degree rotation axis.
The extra screen is actually a custom cover, which can be attached and removed as needed. It allows work in parallel use like deploying one app on both screens, displaying two apps side by side, or using the other screen as a full virtual keyboard or dedicated gaming controller. In addition, the cover also features an additional 2.1-inch display, located on the outside of the device, showing battery status, clock and alerts.
The small flaw at the edge of the screen is a 32-megapixel sensor, compared to the large flaw and an 8-megapixel sensor integrated in the G8. Behind the camera is a pair of cameras – one with a 12-megapixel sensor accompanied by an image stabilizer and the other with a 13-megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens.
The LG G8X ThinQ specification additionally includes the system on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chip along with 6GB of working memory and 128GB of file storage. The battery is at 4,000M / h and QuadDAC support has been maintained through the USB-C port for high headphone audio quality. There is also a Gorilla Glass protective casing and military standard MIL-STD 810G for falls and shocks. It comes with Android version 9.0 above and the LG UX interface.
