Folding smartphones gives users the ability to have a tablet-like experience in a pocketable device. But, people are losing confidence in this futuristic tech due to the fiasco surrounding it — that’s what LG want to answer with the new LG G8X.

The LG G8X is basically your typical brick-style smartphone. It features a single 6.4-inch display, which uses an OLED screen with a 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution.


If you really need that wide display capability like what the Samsung Galaxy Fold or the Huawei Mate X offers, you can get the DualScreen accessory. It’s basically a flip case with the same 6.4-inch screen attached to it. It’s identocal to what the V50 ThinQ also have.

It also has another 2.1-inch monochrome OLED screen. It will then draw power from the device itself via USB Type-C.

Going back to the actual LG G8X, this one is powered by a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage.

There’s also the usual LG features like a Quad DAC and a MIL-STD 810G durability rating.

Just like most of the products introduced at IFA 2019, no final word yet about the pricing and availability details of the LG G8X ThinQ and LG DualScreen.
