Out of the Box

That’s what LG brings home with its latest G8 ThinQ smartphone which allows users to pinch their fingers together above the phone to swipe left and right and launch certain apps, pause or play media and even adjust the volume by miming a twist of a jog dial. Users can also unlock the phone by scanning the veins in their hands.
