LG's latest G-series smartphone sets itself apart with a 3D depth-sensing camera and a screen that doubles as a speaker.


LG has two primary "flagship" phone ranges, with the G-series phones typically appearing in the first half of the calendar year. The LG G7 ThinQ took a little longer than usual to appear in 2018, but it appears that LG is wasting little time in 2019, with the LG G8 ThinQ taking centre stage at LG's press conference for 2019's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Pricing and availability

  • LG has not disclosed pricing or availability information yet

LG's position in the mobile market isn't one of particular strength globally, even though it has produced some fine phones in recent years. It has found itself outpaced by competitors in terms of luring consumers in, so there's no doubt it would love to have a hit on its hands with the LG G8 ThinQ.

Pricing will be a key part of that story. LG used to occupy a very solid challenger space with its G-series phones, but recent years have seen its pricing creep upwards. It's true that most premium flagships have seen price bumps in recent years, but if LG can bring the LG G8 ThinQ to market at a more challenging price, it could have a really compelling story to tell.

Based on prior history we wouldn't expect the LG G8 ThinQ to rush to the local market. LG has often waited for a while before bringing its flagship phones to Australia and the LG G8 ThinQ may well continue that trend.
