LG has announced a brand new flagship class smartphone in India. The LG G8s ThinQ is the latest in the ThinQ line-up and is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset. It also comes with features such as Hand ID, which uses a time-of-flight and infrared sensor to unlock the smartphone by scanning the pattern of veins of the hand. There’s also Air Motion, which lets users control certain functions of the smartphone using hand gestures. This feature was first introduced with the LG G8 ThinQ, which was unveiled at the MWC 2019. The LG G8s ThinQ is the successor to the G8 and includes a triple-rear camera setup.
