The LG G8s ThinQ comes with a host of innovative features such as Hand ID to identify the pattern of veins in users' hands for authentication by using infrared light. Additionally, it also supports touchless hand gestures called Air Motion to perform various actions on the phone such as navigating the gallery without touching the screen. The LG G8s ThinQ is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC processor, has an MIL-STD 810G-certified build, and comes with IP68 dust and water resistance rating.
