Feeling the need for speed? We’re bringing the innovative LG G8S ThinQ™ to our range of post-paid devices, with an incredible gift with purchase redemption offer of a 43-inch UHD Smart TV for our first 1000 customers.
Now we’ve got your attention!
Announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year, LG’s brand new G8S ThinQ™ is packing plenty of power under the hood. With the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor as this year’s most powerful smartphones, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage – expandable by up to 2TB through microSD (sold separately) – the G8S ThinQ™ has more than a few surprises up its sleeve.
It also features an impressive array of front- and rear-facing cameras. It has a triple rear camera, featuring a 13-megapixel ultra-wide angle, 12-megapixel main camera and 12-megapixel telephoto for catching all the action at a distance.
On the front, you’ll find an 8-megapixel camera, along with the G8S ThinQ™’ most innovative feature – a ‘time of flight’ Z Camera that measures the distance between the subject and the lens, ensuring your selfies are less affected by ambient light. That same sensor also makes for smoothly blurred backgrounds in your selfies, giving you sharper and cleaner images.
The innovation extends even further, with a new Hand ID unlock that can read the vein structure in your palm as a unique security feature, alongside the familiar fingerprint sensor on the rear and face unlock. The G8S ThinQ™ also features LG’s 3D Air Motion control a whole new way to use your device. Air Motion allows you to simply wave your hands and perform a number of device functions, including play a song, answer a call, or open a map.
All that speed and power is ready to rumble, too. LG subjected it to 14 different drop and conditioning tests to ensure it’s sturdy as! The G8S ThinQ™ is certified dust and water resistant with an IP68 rating 1.
And if that wasn’t enough, your G8S ThinQ™ comes with a huge bonus: 43 inches worth of bonus, in fact! The first 1000 customers to purchase the G8S ThinQ™ on an eligible Telstra mobile plan and submit a valid entry, will receive an LG 43-inch UHD Smart TV**.
The G8S ThinQ™ is available in our stores from 9 July.
