There has been no information about the price of the phone. A lot of people are interested to know the price of the phone. According to reports, the G8 is said to be around in the region of £600-£700.
The new phone will have a few new features. The main talking point from the phone is the introduction of Z Camera. This Z Camera has an advanced palm vein authentication system. It has been labeled Hand ID. This is the first time that such a concept has been put to use in a smartphone. This system is said to be more secure than a fingerprint sensor. Hand ID will identify the owner by recognizing their hand when it is placed in front of the front facing camera.
Another cool feature that LG G8 has is the Crystal Sound OLED. This is a very cool feature which allows audio to pump through the phone’s display. The audio is boosted by the speaker.
