LG G8 ThinQ – The Crazy Phone That Unlocks With Your Blood – Video, Specs And Price



LG just launched the LG G8 ThinQ and it comes with a rather gimmicky feature – the phone unlocks by detecting your blood.

Yeah, I kid you not the phone can actually detect the haemoglobin in your veins and unlock almost immediately.

However, according to reviews I checked out from MBKHD and others, it doesn’t work everytime but you still have your fingerprint scanner (rather than the comparatively slower in-display fingerprint scanner) and a 3D facial recognition.

LG has also included something called Air Motion Gestures, which makes the camera recognize the shape and movement of your hand for gesture control.

LG G8 ThinQ – How The Unlocking Works

To detect and recognize your veins, the LG G8 has what LG calls a “Z” camera that detects a users’ veins with infrared light. There’s also a 3D sensing “time of flight” (ToF) camera on the front of the LG G8 that detects the shape, thickness, and other individual characteristics of a user’s palms.

To unlock the LG G8 using Hand ID, a user needs to hover their palm above the LG G8’s selfie camera, and raise it up slowly

The phone comes with a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage (that can be expanded), and a 3,500 mAh battery.
