LG has unveiled its LG G8 ThinQ and the LG V50 ThinQ smartphones early this year. The company had also showcased the 5G version of the LG V50 ThinQ and with an additional secondary display at MWC, back in February. And, furthermore, the company had introduced Crystal Sound OLED technology with its flagship LG G8 ThinQ as well.
Citing these newly unveiled devices, it is pretty evident that the company has always been ahead of the competitors in bringing newer design or hardware element changes to its smartphones. Now, a new patent filed by the company had revealed yet another new design strategy for its smartphones in the future. The patent images filed by LG at Hague International Design System had revealed a new smartphone bearing triple front cameras alongside the triple rear cameras as well.
The patent image reveals three cameras hosted in the conventional notch on the front of the display. Going by the industry standards, it is believed that it appears LG might be opting for a primary sensor and a wide-angle sensor for selfies along with the ToF/Depth sensor. Most likely the depth sensor can be used for better portrait shots for selfies as well.
The images further reveal an all screen display on the front alongside the notch on top and a noticeable chin at the bottom. On the back, the image indicates triple cameras set up and on the side, the device feature volume rockers aligned with the dedicated Google assistant button as well. Despite the triple cameras on the front, which will be likely used for facial recognition too, there’s conventional fingerprint reader for authentication as well.
What’s surprising about the patent images is that they don’t showcase the headphone jack, which further suggests LG might also be ditching the headphone jack for its future smartphones as well. Habitually, LG offers not just a 3.5mm headphone jack but also features Quad-DAC support for audiophiles; it’s sad to see LG ditching the headphone jack, at least according to the patent images. Needless to say, these are still patent images and not all the time these images come to life every time. We have wait and see what LG has to bring to the table with its future smartphone models.
