LG G8 ThinQ Gets Certified by FCC Ahead of Official Unveiling at MWC 2019


The flagship LG G8 ThinQ smartphone is set to go official at the company’s Mobile World Congress 2019 press conference in Barcelona on February 24. Ahead of the event in Barcelona, the LG G8 ThinQ has been certified by the US FCC.

Multiple LG G8 ThinQ Variants Granted FCC Certification

The US FCC has certified the LM-G820UM, LM-G820TM, and LM-G820QM variants of the upcoming LG flagship Android smartphone. The FCC filings do not include any important information regarding the hardware specifications of the G8 ThinQ, except that it will support the Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac standards. Thanks to previous leaks, however, we do have a fairly good idea of what to expect from the G8 ThinQ. In terms of design, the LG G8 ThinQ will be largely identical to the G7 ThinQ from last year. The only major difference will be the horizontally-stacked dual rear cameras.

As confirmed by LG earlier today, the G8 ThinQ will use Crystal Sound OLED, capable of vibrating in order to produce audio. The smartphone will also include a separate speaker at the bottom for achieving a stereo effect. Both the speakers will be tuned by Meridian Audio, so you can expect the G8 to deliver impressively loud output. For audiophiles, the G8 ThinQ will include a Hi-Fi Quad DAC as well as DTS:X 3D Surround Sound. Under the hood, LG G8 ThinQ is expected to run on a 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, just like most other flagship smartphones that will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress this year.

In the memory department, we can expect the G8 ThinQ to be available with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. LG’s G series flagship smartphones have never been very impressive in the battery life department and it looks like the G8 will be no different. According to Brazil’s Anatel certification agency, the G8 ThinQ will pack a 3400mAh capacity battery. In terms of software, the smartphone will be running on the Android Pie operating system right out of the box.
