The LG G8s ThinQ comes with the flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset with all its neat features, but LG enabled only the 18W rated Quick Charge 3.0. The triple camera at the rear is made up of a 12MP main shooter, flanked by a 13MP ultrawide angle shooter and 12MP telephoto lens. At the front you will find an 8MP sensor and so-called Z camera with ToF technology.
