LG G8X (DUAL SCREEN) Single Sim.


The LG G8X premiered at IFA last September, but it’s not an upgrade of the G8 headliner. The G8X is a reimagined version with a larger screen of lower resolution, a beefier battery, and often ships with a dedicated Dual Screen case.

The LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen title is not the best review opener and not an eXpansion over the original G8. The G8X is another take on an otherwise excellent flagship with a few twists, one of them being the support for the Dual Screen accessory. And the G8X is part of LG’s ThinQ lineup of smart devices that includes phones, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, speakers, cameras, air conditioners, and whatnot. Now that we’ve made the full model clear name, we will proceed to call the phone LG G8X and be done with the rest.

The LG G8X is premium no matter how you look at it – the phone has a stunning dual Gorilla Glass design, quite resistant at that, it employs a big 6.4″ P-OLED screen with a droplet-shaped notch, runs on the Snapdragon 855 chip, and the dual-camera at the back – wide + ultrawide – seems promising on paper. The key feature of the G8X is the Dual Screen option. In fact, most of the pre-orders are for the LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen, and few retailers offer a standalone G8X package for purchase. We saw a similar turn of events with the LG V50 5G ThinQ Dual Screen.

LG’s solution for a foldable phone is rather simple, and bulky, but it has a lot of benefits – the screen on the left is absolutely the same in size, shape, pixel count. You don’t have to worry about a special hinge or screen protector. And you can opt out of it anytime and thus get rid of the bulkiness.
