LG's G8 ThinQ rocks what you'd expect from a flagship in 2019: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 8-core processor, a 6.1-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 3500-mAh battery, 16-megapixel and 12-megapixel cameras on the rear, and an 8-megapixel counterpart facing forward.

LG's flagship for 2019 has a couple of unique features: You can log in with your hand and use gesture controls without even touching the phone. This Amazon version also has Alexa voice controls.View Deal

Then there's what you don't expect: LG's unique palm recognition, which recognizes the veins in your hand and lets you unlock the screen with just a wave. (You can also log in with your face or a fingerprint.) 

The phone also recognizes three-dimensional hand gestures and lets you customize them to the phone's controls, letting you go all Johnny Mnemonic. Oh, and the speaker is the screen; yes, it does work well.

This unlocked Amazon-specific edition comes with Amazon Shopping, Amazon Music, Audible and other Amazon apps pre-installed. Alexa is built in and will respond to your voice commands to tell you the weather, the news or traffic conditions. 

But you'd better act fast: This deal expires at midnight Pacific time Nov. 30 (3:00 a.m. Eastern time).
