Popular tipster OnLeaks revealed renders of what was said to be the upcoming LG G8. LG has come out to deny those claims, however, and it's a lot more likely that those images are of another premium LG phone.

Two days ago, reputable tipster OnLeaks revealed what was touted to be the upcoming LG G8. LG has put paid to those rumors, however, with the company’s Head of Global Corporate Communications, Ken Hong, debunking the renders as false and just “speculative rendering”.

According to OnLeaks, though, the revealed device actually does exist, but it’s just not the LG G8 as initially thought. Instead, it will likely be some other high-end phone by LG. The back of the device resembles that of the LG V30, while the front has the same notch seen on the G7 ThinQ. There’s also the presence of two selfie cameras, just like on the V40 ThinQ.

Speaking of the LG G8, details of the devices haven’t exactly been forthcoming. Rumors have it that it will feature an in-display speaker technology, though. We’re not sure how useful that’ll be, but new tech is always nice. The G7 was launched in May last year but rumors claim the G8 could be released earlier this time around. We expect it to be powered by a Snapdragon 855 and to feature a triple rear camera setup, like the V40 ThinQ.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
