The LG G8X smartphone's media capabilities don't end there. LG provided the G8X with a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, DTS:X 3D Surround support, and balanced stereo speakers. Together they work to provide increased sound quality and clarity from your favorite music or movie. Capturing your own media in the form of high-quality images and video is possible thanks to dual rear cameras and a hi-res 32MP selfie camera with Pixel Binning. The rear cameras include a standard 12MP and super wide angle 13MP with a 136° field of view.

Running the Android 9.0 Pie operating system with LG's UX 9.0 UI, this phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Octa-core processor (1 x 2.84 GHz, 3 x 2.42 GHz, 4x 1.79 GHz) and 6GB of RAM. You can store your apps and snaps on 128GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to a whopping 2TB in size. This phone is unlocked and compatible with GSM/4G LTE networks. Connect to the internet and other devices with built-in Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Wi-Fi Direct, and Bluetooth 5.0. The G8X ThinQ Dual Screen also supports NFC technology for making phone-to-phone data transfers or mobile payments where supported.

Android 9.0 Pie

The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your home screen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to millions of apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 9.0 Pie adds a variety of predictive capabilities, navigation changes, and digital well-being enhancements that let you take control of your Android experience. By learning how you use your phone over time, Pie will automatically adjust certain features for you, such as battery usage and display brightness.

With Dashboard and App Timers, Pie lets you see your phone usage in detail, allowing you to set timers and reminders so you can better manage the time you spend using your smartphone.

GSM / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity

International Variant / International LTE

The G8X is an international variant of the ThinQ. It can be used in the Americas; however, LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network, and will not support popular LTE bands in the United States. Please choose your country/carrier above to confirm the network compatibility of this phone. Due to laws in the originating region, some functions may not be available, such as Wi-Fi calling or NFC payment options. If you have any questions regarding our imported smartphones, please feel free to contact our sales or customer service departments.

Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)

Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) allows you to lower your mobile costs when traveling while staying connected. Once your SIM cards are installed, you will be able to receive phone calls and text messages from either without needing to manually choose which one is active. When you want to make a call or send an SMS message, you can select the correct SIM card. When one SIM card is being used for a phone call, the other will not be active until you hang up. Operator charges may apply.

Dual Screen Support

The included dual screen case lets you insert your G8X ThinQ to power a secondary 6.4" OLED display. With two displays, you can enjoy a host of additional features and capabilities.

360 Freestop Hinge: The display's freestop hinge lets you flip the screen all the way around or lock it in place at any angle along the way. Fold it into a stand, the form factor of a mini laptop, or whichever orientation suits your needs.
Photo Filter Preview: The camera app can be spread across both screens where you can snap an image on the main display, then preview filters for that image on the second, comparing the results side-by-side with the original.
Dual Video Call: This feature lets you see more of your friends and family on video calls. Fill an entire display with everyone you're speaking to, while you can monitor how you and your location looks on the other display.
My Pick App: For those of you who have a go-to mobile app, My Pick App lets you lock it in on one display so you can jump right in as soon as you open the phone.
Dual Web Browsing: Browse through two different pages at the same time. Use the second screen to see a translated version of the page you're on, see product details while shopping, and more.
