The first difference is that there's no visible fingerprint scanner here, and with there seemingly not being enough space in the notch for a decent facial recognition system, it's likely that the LG G8X has an in-screen fingerprint scanner.

LG G8X is an upcoming flagship smartphone from the South Korean Tech Giant which will be another variant of the LG G8.

LG Electronics hinted at new features of its dual-screen accessory for the follow-up model of its 5G smartphone, V50 ThinQ, in a teaser video.

Smartphones from the stables of USA tech giant Apple and China's Huawei are also expected to hit shelves in the coming months. This phone is said to be the successor to the LG G8 ThinQ, which launched earlier in February, during Mobile World Congress exhibition.

Unlike the G8 ThinQ, which sports a wide notch, the G8X ThinQ will have a less intrusive waterdrop cutout at the top.

Near the end of the clip, the two screens folded to show the outer contours of a smartphone and a date and time is displayed. Rumors started suggesting that the company will introduce that device at IFA in Berlin next month, and the phone has just surfaced in renders (both images and video). The G8X ThinQ will measure in at 159.3 x 75.8 x 8.5mm.

As shared by the OnLeaks and Pricebaba, the back of the phone will retain a dual-camera setup aligned horizontally. Interestingly, the renders reveal an earpiece at the top of the phone, suggesting the G8X ThinQ may not have the Crystal Sound OLED technology present on the G8 ThinQ.

The handset could be equipped with the latest Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC instead of Snapdragon 855 processor but we should wait and see for it.
