LG G8 smartphone to feature OLED screen that doubles up as speaker

Thursday 14 February 2019 | 09:03 CET | News
Just a week ahead of its official unveiling at MWC 2019, LG has announced that its new flagship G8 ThinQ smartphone will feature Crystal Sound OLED (CSO) technology that turns the screen into a speaker.
