LG G8X images show a bigger screen with a smaller notch, 3.5mm jack

12 August 2019
The LG G8 ThinQ used a wider notch with 3D face scanning tech and Crystal Sound OLED speaker, but the X model will reverse some of those choices.

Props to LG for keeping the 3.5mm jack, the last of its kind. That disgusting notch needs to go though. Its been there for 3 generations

          Despite the small notch, it looks way better than the "hole" on Note 10. This will be a competitor if priced right. Moreover it has the essentials kept such as 3.5mm jack and microsd slot which attracts productive / power users which used to be ardent TRUE Note fans.

            Even Xiaomi phones were getting more frequent updates and longer too. The changelogs were always BS. Once you downloaded the OTA and inspected the update, it actually had zero improvements and features most of the time, it was made just to save face and look good, but not actually useful like the updates you see on OnePlus/Pixel phones.

            Besides, the AndroidOne program officially ended a few years ago. Updates are no longer made and pushed by Google. It is upto the OEM to send it, and some of them have done a poor job. The program is basically a shell to use Stock Android and a "pinky promise" to do updates.

            Unfortunately LG does not have the foresight and leadership to increase revenue by stealing marketshare from the likes of Samsung/Huawei, because they do not target the massive gap left in the industry of having a truly "pro-consumer" choice. Pixel's are a rip off, Huawei has poor support, and Samsung has poor durability. The days of a proper competition are behind us.

              Hope they will get rid of notch and I will update my G6

                LG needs to bring back removable battery, but course, every OEM are in the business at keep on selling. If LG builds another near perfect phone like the V20, nobody will upgrade.

                    Notch is one of the ugliest trends there is and it should be gone.

                      Needs a 4,000mah battery minimum and a competitive price tag (around 750usd) and they can steal some customers from Samsung

                      Also interesting that they've already given up on that hand ID tech

                        I hope there's a LG G8X Android One version so Google can deploy on-time software updates on this phone rather than LG. I dunno how Android One works but I thought it's Google who does the updating.
