LG G8 ThinQ Price and Availability
We aren’t expecting LG G8 ThinQ to come out until the mid-2019, alas, so don't hold your breath if you hoped to get your hands on this year. This is based on the precedent – LG G7 ThinQ released back in May 2018 – therefore, now we are predicting a similar release month for LG G8 ThinQ. As far as LG G8 ThinQ Price in Australia is concerned, we suspect that prices are in line with the flagship outgoing, but possibly a bit higher if there is a second screen. Expecting LG G8 ThinQ, for now, to cost around AU$1099-1266.
