LG has already released two different high-end smartphones so far this year, reportedly
for an official announcement in just a few weeks, which will make it even harder for the
to stand out from a very crowded pack.
On the bright side, the impending release of a
with a smaller notch and more refined design also means we should expect the original LG
to continue dropping in price. Normally listed at $850, the grossly overlooked 6.1-incher can be purchased at a massive $350 discount right now on Amazon in a special edition equipped with hands-free Alexa technology.
That means the e-commerce giant’s popular voice assistant can be summoned with absolutely no effort and no touching the device, at least after you complete a quick initial setup of the Alexa and Qualcomm Voice Assist apps. This substantially marked-down variant of the G8 ThinQ comes with a “pre-installed selection” of Amazon apps as well, including Shopping, Music, and Audible, but the deal is available for everyone rather than just Prime members.
