As we are inching closer to MWC 2020 next month, rumors and leaks about device launches are picking up pace. While the Samsung Galaxy S11/S20 and the Huawei P40 have been the subject of speculations, LG’s upcoming smartphone – LG G9 ThinQ, has also been in the rumors.
The South Korean company is likely to show off the smartphone at MWC 2020 in Barcelona next month. Now, an alleged case render for the LG smartphone has surfaced on the web, giving a slight idea of the design. The renders suggest that the smartphone could feature a horizontally-stacked quad rear camera setup, placed centrally. The LG G9 ThinQ will also have an almost bezel-less display with a waterdrop notch. Since the fingerprint reader is nowhere to be seen on the device, it is likely to pack an in-display fingerprint scanner, GSMArena reports.
On the front, the device layout also reveals an earpiece speaker and a secondary noise cancellation mic at the top. The left edge of the smartphone features a volume rocker and a dedicated Google Assistant key. While the right side has the power button key. Whereas, the bottom edge of the smartphone has a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, microphone, and speaker grill.
As of now, other details in terms of specifications and price are scarce. However, previous reports suggest that the LG G9 ThinQ could house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset.
