So far in 2019 we have seen a lot of mobile phones, some of them are really good and some of them are just average. We recently seen foldable phones which are making hype in the market as it is the new vision of the mobile phones and now out of nowhere LG just launch it’s new mobile phone LG G8 ThinQ
As a lot of mobile phones has been launched in the market with affordable price and with some improved technology, so what make this phone special.
Well as far as drastic and noticeable design changes that’s not what’s really going on with LG G8, fingerprint reader is still at the back LG and the notch and the bezel is still there no change in that but LG have introduced some really cool features in it’s new phone which no smartphone company has introduced yet, one of the feature is “vein ID”, vein ID is a biometric unlock that extracts an image via absorption characteristics of the hemoglobin in the blood in your hand.
This feature is basically to unlock your phone by waving your hand over it, technology behind this feature is sensors in the phone read your vein pattern in your hand to make a unique pattern to unlock your phone and that is pretty cool now you can just wave your hand over phone and it will unlock
Other new feature is “air motion” which is improved with IR blaster and all the same camera stuff to do more things by waving over your hand.
With this new feature you can do things on your phone without touching it but not all things but still it’s pretty impressive technology ,so to activate it you have to hold your palm over the phone and you’ll see a little bar and then you back your hand up a couple inches and when you do you’ll see an image of your now motion tracked hand appeared on the screen and you can do actions from there, you can do customizable apps shortcuts to open stuff you can dismiss phone calls , alarms, change volume, take screenshots etc it’s kind of cool feature but still it’s incomplete.
You can open your apps with this but then you still have to go on the app and do what you want and it’s difficult to get it to work every single time but i guess longer you use the phone the more you’ll get used to it and conquer the learning curve and get it in sweet spot every time.
