The LG G8 ThinQ is expected to be officially announced at MWC 2019 which takes place in the next week or so. This will represent LG’s flagship smartphone for 2019 and as such, we expect that it will be priced at typical flagship prices. If you were hoping that LG might price it more affordably, think again.

A post on Reddit by u/livedadevil claims to have gotten the LG G8 SKU in their retail system in which the pricing of the phone has been revealed to be $1,199.99 CAD. When converted to USD, this means that the phone will be priced around at $900-ish give or take, although that is the starting price and that the price will most likely go up depending on the storage size of the phone.

Whether or not this is true remains to be seen, but at the same time flagship phones are usually priced around that range these days so it shouldn’t be surprising if it really were priced similarly. That being said, whether or not the LG G8 will be worth the $900-ish price tag remains to be seen.

The phone is expected to be packing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, a sound-on display, and possibly even touchless gesture control.
