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. New leak-based renders of the LG G8X have been shared.

Smartphones from the stables of U.S. tech giant Apple and China's Huawei are also expected to hit shelves in the coming months. As you may have guessed by the name already, the G8X ThinQ will be a direct successor to the G8 ThinQ that was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. First up, the LG G8X will feature a 6.2-inch Quad HD+ OLED screen with a waterdrop notch instead of the wide notch that came with the LG G8 ThinQ.

Furthermore, we can find a notch display on the front which houses the selfie camera and this waterdrop notch is smaller when compared to its siblings. The phone will include two horizontally-aligned cameras on the back, along with some additional sensors next to them. LG's branding will be present on the back of the phone as well, while the back will be curved. There is no indication of a physical fingerprint sensor on the device hence it should be coming with an in-display fingerprint sensor along with the AI facial unlocking system.

The second major difference is the presence of an earpiece, which suggests LG has ditched its hole-less Crystal Sound tech from the LG G8, which used vibrations to produce sound through the screen.

Finally, according to the source the LG G8X has a roughly 6.2-inch screen, up from 6.1 inches on the LG G8, and the dimensions are apparently 159.3 x 75.8 x 8.5mm, which would make it larger all round than the 151.9 x 71.8 x 8.4mm LG G8. 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). It might get powered either by the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 or the Snapdragon 855+ SoC.
