LG top executive derides prevailing LG G8 renders, says it is Fake and not real

Popular smartphone leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (a.k.a. OnLeaks) released some image and video CAD renders of the upcoming LG G8 ThinQ earlier today. One ThinQ was clear from the render – the LG G8 ThinQ was going to be a piece of an unimpressive device – at east judging by the look.

The CAD-based renders reveal a device that looks nearly identical to the LG G7 ThinQ with a design element that has faded out with the year 2018. While fans felt the feeling of disappointment, at first sight, LG mobile via its head of global corporate communications, Ken Hong has assured fans of a better offering.

Reacting to Droidlife opinion on the alleged G8 renders, the top executive of the Korean firm described the prevailing CAD renders as nothing but mere “speculative rendering” and “not real.”

And while he didn’t completely trash the CAD renders, Ken Hong further said that the renders may have been representative of an upcoming LG phone at some point in time, noting “ALL phone designs are “real” at some point in time, i.e. in a designer’s mind.”

LG hasn’t shared any official information on the LG G8 ThinQ, however, this clarification should serve as a relief to those who already felt disappointed at the 3D CAD renders.

    Hope it is fake. Lg have produced great looking phones in the past but now they just look like any other wide notch phone on the market. About time they stood out from the crowd again.
