The G8S ThinQ also comes with MIL-STD 810G compliance, and it also offers IP68 water and dust resistance. It will be available in three colors: Mirror Black, Mirror Teal and Mirror White. The smartphone is LG’s opportunity to compete with the likes of OnePlus 7 Pro, Honor 20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10e. But, while the specifications are competitive, it seems to lack an appeal that other smartphones offer now.
