Do you remember growing up watching movies with futuristic devices? It’s about to be a reality as LG mobile has just launched their new G8 ThinQ smartphone that has a feature called air motion which allows you control the phone with your hand without even touching it.

This really cool touch-less control feature can come in handy when you’re cooking or any other time you don’t want your phone screen stained.

This smartphone comes with other stand out features like Face unlock and fingerprint sensor if you’re not in that show off mood. It also wows us with
Crystal Sound OLED for Audio Like You’ve Never Heard: By combining the dynamic, immersive clarity of the Crystal Sound OLED display speaker – which turns your entire phone screen into a speaker – with the powerful bass of Boombox, you’ll get full-range sound that’s immersive, clear, and dynamic.

It doesn’t just end there, other features worthy of note are its 32 bit HI-FI Quad DAC, IP68 water resistance rating and a 3,500mAh battery. I’m pretty sure this device is enough competition for the recent Samsung Galaxy S10.
