Renders point to LG G9 with four rear cameras

Renders have surfaced of a phone that is believed to be the LG G9. The device is very similar to the G8, but has four cameras on the back. The phone has a teardrop-shaped notch and a 3.5mm jack.

The renders are published by the Indian webshop Cashkaro in collaboration with @Onleaks, a Twitter user creating realistic renders of upcoming smartphones. He does this on the basis of cad files. Many of his renders will match the final smartphones exactly when they are released. The big differences between the G9 and its predecessor, the G8 ThinQ, are the number of cameras on the back and the notch on the front. The new device will probably get a water drop notch instead of a wider notch in the screen. Whether it remains possible to continue to use the gesture control of the G8 is not clear. The phone also has four cameras on the back, instead of the G8’s two cameras. It is not known exactly what lenses are involved.

The phone is otherwise similar to its predecessor in many ways, with roughly the same shape, an all-glass body, and the same size bezels. The device would measure 169.4×77.6×8.8mm and have a screen between 6.7 and 6.9 inches. The renders show a 3.5mm port in addition to the USB-C connection at the bottom. A fingerprint scanner on the back or side seems to be missing. The G9 will probably get a built-in scanner under the screen. There is no word yet on release dates and prices.
