LG Electronics (LG) has captured the imaginations of consumers the world over at Mobile World Congress 2019 with the simultaneous unveiling of its newest G and V series flagship smartphones. At the Center de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB) in Barcelona, LG introduced the new LG G8 ThinQ, alongside its first 5G phone, LG V50 ThinQ 5G for a double dose of excitement.

Display and Audio sound

Giving consumers the ability to enjoy all 5G offers as soon as service becomes available, the groundbreaking LG V50 ThinQ 5G has been carefully crafted to provide an exceptional user experience. LG’s first 5G handset will exceed expectations, allowing users to experience high-quality content at 5G speeds.

LG has gone all out to boost the display and audio performance of LG V50 ThinQ 5G so consumers can enjoy more immersive content as they watch more and play more on 5G. A 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision Display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio offers users an immersive experience whether they’re viewing a video or enjoying a game.


LG’s 5G smartphone features optical innovations that enable users to take extraordinary pictures and videos of the highest quality. Looking beyond still images, LG implemented Portrait Video in both the front and rear cameras, building on video bokeh effect found on the rear camera of the LG G8 ThinQ.

5G Software

LG’s first 5G device is powered by the newest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 Mobile Platform, with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end, and antenna elements and LG’s optimized software to deliver the advanced processing power required for 5G.


The phone is also equipped with a 4,000mAh battery and a new Vapor Chamber heat-dissipation system which helps to keep internal temperatures low and support sustained apps processing performance – even when multitasking.


Inheriting the V series’ thin, stylish design, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G is just 8.3 millimeters thin and weighs only 183 grams. To maintain its sleek profile with uninterrupted lines, the rear lens housing is flush with the back of the phone.

LG G8 ThinQ carries the tradition of offering consumers worldwide a palette of convenience-enhancing features with a focus on delivering advanced optics and audio capabilities. What’s more, the subtle, understated design philosophy that discards all nonessential design elements gives the LG G8 ThinQ an undeniably stylish appearance. Flawless aesthetics are not limited to the front of the device as its zero-protrusion rear camera creates a satisfyingly smooth surface.

biometric authentication

LG G8 ThinQ is the world’s first smartphone with advanced palm vein authentication, made possible by the Z Camera backed up by ToF technology. LG’s Hand ID identifies owners by recognizing the shape, thickness and other individual characteristics of the veins in the palms of their hands. Simply placing a pre-registered hand in front of the front-facing camera for a split second is all it takes to unlock the LG G8 ThinQ and all its content. With multiple forms of biometric authentication, LG is delivering more options for smartphone security than any other manufacturer, allowing consumers to choose which option is most convenient for them.

Air motion Gesture

The Z Camera is also implemented to advance the user experience with Air Motion gesture recognition. Without ever touching the phone – useful in scenarios like cooking or cleaning – users can answer or end calls, take screenshots, switch between applications or adjust the volume. Controlling the LG G8 ThinQ is as simple as waving a hand or swiping the air, adding convenience to consumers increasingly doing more at home and on-the-go.


Video Portrait makes its debut on the LG G8 ThinQ, giving users control of bokeh while filming video in Portrait Mode with the rear camera. By analyzing distance and depth with Dual FOV technology, users can capture exactly what they see, making it possible to produce videos that look polished and professional.
