LG G8s ThinQ Specifications
The LG G8s ThinQ features a 6.21-inch G-OLED display with Full HD+ resolution. There is a traditional, rectangular notch at the top of the display. The display has HDR10, Dolby Vision, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Being an OLED unit, there is an always-on feature to show you notifications at a glance.
The LG G8s ThinQ has three rear cameras – a 12MP primary camera with PDAF and OIS, a 12MP telephoto camera with just PDAF, and a 13MP ultrawide camera. There are two cameras at the front – an 8MP unit for capturing selfies and a 3D ToF unit for secure face unlocking. The rear camera setup can record 4K videos up to 60 frames per second, whereas, the front-facing camera can record Full HD videos at 60 frames per second.
Powering the LG G8s ThinQ is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. On the software side of things, there is Android 9 Pie with LG UX 8.0. The device packs a 3550mAh battery featuring 18W Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging. There is also wireless charging on-board. Other features of the smartphone include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, IP68 dust and water resistance, Corning Gorilla Glass 6 rear panel, stereo speakers, 3.5mm audio jack, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, and a USB Type-C port.
LG Q60 Specifications
The LG Q60 has a 6.26-inch IPS LCD with HD+ resolution. Unlike the G8s ThinQ, the display in this device has a tiny, U-shaped notch at the top. LG hasn’t specified the display protection yet.
The smartphone comes powered by the Helio P22 SoC, which is built on a 12nm fabrication process. And as you might expect, the device comes with Android 9 Pie OS. However, unlike the high-end smartphones from the brand which feature LG UX 8.0, the Q60 features the older, UX 7.0 user interface. The device relies on a 3500mAh battery supporting 10W charging. Unfortunately, the device still uses a microUSB port.
The LG Q60 features a triple-camera setup at the rear comprising of a 16MP primary camera, a 5MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, there is a 13MP camera. Cameras on either side can record Full HD videos up to 30 frames per second. Other features of the LG Q60 include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0. 3.5mm audio jack, and MIL-STD-810G compliance.
