MWC 2019 may be a few weeks away, but phone companies are already readying themselves for big announcements before the trade show kicks off.

Case in point is LG, which just introduced its LG G8 ThinQ.

The high-end phone, which includes face unlock technology, is the successor to last year's LG G7 ThinQ, and will likely make its physical debut in Barcelona, Spain at the end of the month.

LG posted its announcement online and while it didn't include any specs or images of the phone, we do learn more about its front-facing camera.

The phone features time-of-flight technology, which enables cameras to measure distance using infrared light and scan 3D objects.

For the user, that means the G8 will have facial recognition, similar to FaceID that's featured on Apple iPhones.
