LG isn’t that big in the Android world, but a range of decent Android devices are still published by the company. The LG 2020 flagship’s first leak, the LG G9, appeared on the internet today to show us what we can expect later this year.
With @OnLeaks ‘ courtesy and reported to CashKaro, the LG G9 appears to be just a small step up from what had happened before. The most notable change here is that the back of the phone now houses 4 camera sensors, up from just 2 on the LG G8ThinQ. It’s uncertain what the two additional sensors are, but it seems likely we’ll see a periscope-style zoom lens based on their location, but that’s just speculation.
Like most other flagship smartphones these days, a metal frame made from aluminium appears to feature in the LG G9ThinQ. It’s home on the right side to the control key and on the left to individual volume buttons. The close relationship between LG and Google also continues with what appears to be a dedicated button for Google Assistant.
As with the rest of the handset, the top tends to include the SIM card tray and microSD card slot, while the bottom is home to a USB-C port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a speaker. The latter is paired to the top of the display with an in-ear speaker, suggesting that LG permanently dissects the sound-on-display technology of the G8ThinQ.
