At MWC 2019, LG unveiled its flagship G8 device that carries several intriguing features and brings upgrades over its hugely popular G7 ThinQ.
Another interesting feature that LG has added is a new “Advanced Palm Vein Authentication” system for unlocking the device.
The smartphone scans your palm vein pattern to unlock the device. According to LG, the chances of two people having the same palm vein pattern is 1 in 1 billion which makes it more secure than a fingerprint scanner.
To combat with the swathe of foldable devices launching this year, LG has also launched a dual screen “companion” which is an additional screen that can be attached as an accessory to LG V50 ThinQ, LG’s first 5G smartphone that launched alongside G8.
LG has not unveiled the price or the date of availability of G8 as of now.
