LG G8 ThinQ with model number LM-G820N has appeared on Geekbench today, just a day ahead of its official unveiling at the MWC 2019 which starts on February 24.
The Geekbench listing confirms the presence of Snapdragon 855 SoC (codename: msmnile) and 6GB RAM. The phone will ship with Android 9 Pie OS out of the box. The 7 nm octacore processor clocks at a frequency of 1.78 GHz.
The phone scores 3514 in single-core score and 11239 in multi-core score in Geekbench. This, when compared to the other Snapdragon 855 powered phones, indicates slightly low performance. Lenovo Z5 Pro GT (Lenovo L78032) outperforms multi-core score by a good 100 points. The Galaxy S10 Plus (SM-G975) and Xiaomi Mi 9 have scored about 50 points more than LG G8 when it comes to multi-core score. Even the single core scores of LG G8 are not very close to the likes of Mi 9, Z5 Pro GT, Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus.
LG’s G-series flagship phone of the year is the G8 ThinQ. LG has officially confirmed that G8 ThinQ will have the Crystal sound OLED which vibrates to produce audio. The phone will also have a speaker placed at the bottom and one can expect excellent sound quality from both the speakers combined. The processor of LG G8 is Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, and this is the first device from LG with Snapdragon 855 SoC S0C.
A few days ago, the phone was certified in FCC for a few model variants namely LM-G820UM, LM-G820TM and LM-G820QM. The FCC listing didn’t reveal any important specs of the device other than the supported LTE and Wi-Fi bands. Apart from FCC, LG G8 was not spotted anywhere else!
LG G8 has already appeared in leaked renders, thanks to the popular tipster Evan Blass. The main difference in the design of LG G8 is the presence of horizontally placed dual cameras at the rear side. Let’s look forward to the launch of the phone at the MWC event.
