There's no word yet on when LG might fully announce the G8 ThinQ, but Mobile World Congress is taking place later this month, and that could be an opportunity for LG to fully reveal its next flagship.
We've heard, no pun intended, of under the screen speakers before. Rather than adding to take away others, the LG G8 ThinQ's CSO will, instead, join other features that have given LG's G series its well-earned audio fame, including the new Boombox Speaker, Hi-Fi Quad DAC, DTS-X 3D Surround Sound, MQA support, and, now Meridian audio fine-tuning.
Today's teaser announcement addresses two things: the main point is LG disclosing about the audio speaker design of the G8, while inadvertently confirming the screen technology of the upcoming flagship. The entire surface of the display is vibrated to produce sound with a loud volume. This would make it ideal for watching movies - but there's a chance it won't work as well for playing games, as fingers touching the screen would cancel the vibrations. Furthermore, "full-bodied stereo performance" is possible, with the phone using the top part of the screen and the bottom speaker. Around the back is the fingerprint sensor (can they compete with the top guns without an in-display fingerprint sensor?), dual cameras - likely using LG's standard and wide angle lens configuration - and a flash.

Reddit users fear Chinese censorship following Tencent investment

We've known for some time that LG will be using MWC 2019 to introduce the G8 ThinQ handset - the successor to its G7 ThinQ - but the Korean company hasn't been shy in talking about its features ahead of the launch.
When renders of the upcoming LG G8 based on leaked CAD models were first circulated, one feature was particularly conspicuous by its absence - there was no earpiece.
