LG Q8 Launched in Europe, not much of a new phone
Around a week ago, the Korean Company LG Electronics released the LG Q6,Q6 Plus and the Q6a. Taking design hints from its current flagship the LG G6, it is a statement just like the Samsung A-series that mid range phones are capable and worth your money. Today, LG announced a latest addition to that mid ranger segment with the LG Q8.
If the LG Q8 looks a lot similar to the LG V20 from 2016, then you aren’t wrong. For instance, just like the V20, the new device features two screens on the front: one 5.2-inch QHD panel and a smaller strip on top which can double as an always-on ticker. And just like last year’s V-series flagship, the Q8 supports Quad DAC.
Other than that, the device is powered by Snapdragon 820, 4 GB of RAM, and a beefy 3,000 mAh battery. It features a 13-megapixel sensor and an additional 8-megapixel wide-angle lens. The only difference between the LG V20 and the new LG Q8 is a lesser megapixel camera in exchange for water and dust resistance.
Also if you follow LG very much like a fan boy, you might remember that LG released a Japan exclusive phone last year named LG V34. The LG V34 was a little modified version of the LG V20 and the new device is a ditto copy of the LG V34.
The LG Q8 will be available for €599 later this month in Europe. There is no word on when or whether this device will be hitting other markets.
