LG G8 ThinQ’s vibrating screen will turn it into a boombox. It’s the second new feature LG has confirmed for the device

The upcoming LG G8 ThinQ will use its screen as a speaker, LG has revealed. The feature, dubbed ‘Crystal Sound OLED’, or CSO, by the company, vibrates the screen to create sound in a similar way to how the diaphragm works in a human.

By using the entire screen as a speaker, the G8 ThinQ should deliver better audio clarity and more pronounced bass than other smartphones. This would make it ideal for watching movies – but there’s a chance it won’t work as well for playing games, as fingers touching the screen would cancel the vibrations.

LG has used the feature in some of its TVs, but it’s new to smartphones – so when we get our hands on the device we’ll need to test it out and see if it really does improve the audio quality.
