The video begins with a movement of the hand from left to right on a sheet of paper with the words “Goodbye Touch” materializing on the screen. This is followed by “MWC 2019 LG Premier” and then the date and location of the event. The words “Goodbye Touch” could mean that LG is working on a model that works through a touchless gesture interface.

The LG G8 ThinQ can recognize hand gestures at a distance of almost 11 inches using a sensor on the front. Contactless browsing has not been seen on devices since the Galaxy S4’s Air Gestures, which was a disaster. However, the technology has come a long way since then and we can expect LG’s interface to be fluid and intuitive than it was four years ago with Samsung.

Other than that, the phone is expected to come with a triple camera setup. Renders That emerged earlier indicated that the LG G8 could have a 6.1-inch display with a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio. The dimensions are said to be 152 x 72 x 8.4mm. The phone is inclined to have speakers with “sound in technology”, whatever that means and beyond, it is speculated that the LG G8 will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.
