TORONTOOct. 24, 2019 /CNW/ – Today, LG Electronics Canada, announced the arrival of the new LG G8XThinQ Dual Screen. Unveiled at IFA 2019 in Berlin, the latest G series smartphone features a new form factor – a detachable second display designed to enhance consumers’ mobile capabilities.

With the ability to run multiple applications simultaneously on both screens, the LG G8XThinQ Dual Screen provides a new level of on-the-go multitasking excellence. The LG Dual Screen adopts a 360 Freestop Hinge to allow for viewing at any angle. This new feature provides users the ability to experience common mobile activities, such as photography and texting, at the same time and in a whole new way.

The LG G8XThinQ Dual Screen also offers an enhanced user experience in mobile gaming through the addition of the new customizable LG Game Pad. Users can take advantage of the LG Game Pad with any mobile game that supports an external controller via Bluetooth to enjoy an unobstructed view of the main display and the action taking place on it. Users can choose from a range of configurations specialized for shooting, racing, action, and sports or they can design their own game pad in minutes.

“The mobile needs of our consumers are evolving. They need to be able to do more, and one screen doesn’t always suffice,” said Richard White, VP of Marketing, LG Electronics Canada. “Whether it’s texting while gaming or live streaming a sporting event while taking photos, the LG G8XThinQ Dual Screen lets users do more in the palm of their hand.”

Starting November 1, the LG G8XThinQ Dual Screen will be available to purchase through the following Canadian retail partners: Bell, Eastlink, Freedom Mobile, Koodo, SaskTel, Tbooth Wireless, Telus, The Mobile Shop, Videotron, Virgin Mobile, Wireless Wave, and Xplore Mobile. Consumers should check with local retailers for exact availability and pricing details.
