5 Reasons to Wait for the LG G8 & 5 Reasons Not to


5 Reasons to Wait for the LG G8 & 5 Reasons Not to is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

Buyers have several great Android phones to choose from today and more are coming in the first half of 2019. You probably have your eye on the Google Pixel 3 XL, the LG V40, or even the upcoming Galaxy S10. However, most LG fans will want to think about waiting for the LG G8 next year.

During 2018 the smartphone changed a ton. Screens are huge, bezels are small, cameras are in the screen, and technology is vastly improving. All while competition is stronger than ever before.

Any of the high-end phones released in 2018 would be a great phone to buy right now, or even during the first few months of the year. That said, you’ll want to keep your eyes on all of the stunning phones that are in the works for 2019 before making up your mind.

For starters, the Galaxy S10 launch is probably less than two months away, Apple iPhone 11 rumors are swirling already, and we’re already seeing some big changes from LG Mobile ahead of the LG G8.

LG G8 Rumors & News

As you probably guessed, LG is already working on a brand new G8 for 2019. And while the phone is probably still 3-4 months away, we’re already starting to hear talk of a 4K screen, tear-drop notch, more cameras or a 3D camera, and other rumors.

According to the popular leakster @UniverseIce LG is planning a beautiful new 4K display for the LG G8. However, with the latest trends of bezel-free screens, tiny notches at the top, or cutouts for the camera, those plans could change by the time the phone arrives during the first quarter of 2019. Even the popular ETNews already suggested a typical 2K screen with a teardrop notch.

Obviously, it’s still far too early to speculate and the LG G8 is in active development and in the middle of the testing phase. At the same time, LG recently put the “turnaround expert” from its highly successful TV division in charge of mobile, so people should prepare for LG to change things up in 2019.

Basically, early rumors point to some exciting changes, potentially at least three cameras on the back, and an edge-to-edge display that can rival the best of the best. Not to mention previous years and the V40 give us a good idea of what to expect, including a potential LG G8 release date.

There are some very tempting phones available right now, and in this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to wait for LG’s G8 ThinQ and why you shouldn’t wait and look elsewhere today.

Wait For a Bigger, Better LG G8

Wait For a Bigger, Better LG G8

The big LG V40 and its five cameras is nothing to shrug off. It’s a highly capable phone and likely the best device we’ve ever seen from LG.

It offers excellent performance, a huge vibrant display, double the storage, and a trio of high-end cameras on the back, not to mention two more up front. It’s a great phone anyone would love, even with the large notch in the screen, but some of you might want to hold off for what’s coming next.

We don’t have a full spec sheet yet, but you can expect the company to make significant upgrades that follows the path of Samsung, Apple, OnePlus and more. They already beat Samsung to the market with five cameras, so now they just gotta match them with the screen.

You can expect an even bigger screen with no notch, or maybe a tiny “water-drop” notch like the OnePlus 6T. We don’t expect LG to cut a hole in the screen for the front camera like the Galaxy S10. If you hate the cutout idea, the G8 and its teardrop notch might be perfect. 

We’ll get a new processor (Snapdragon 855) with improved performance and gaming, better battery life, Android 9 Pie, and the best speakers.

If you aren’t thrilled with the LG G7 or V40 design, like me, just know that something better is coming next year. There’s no way things stay the same, especially with what we’re seeing from the rest of the competition.

The phone will be all screen in the front, and we have to assume it’ll have at least 3-4 cameras, similar to the V40. That’s not all, so keep reading in our next slide for even more information.
