LG Q8 announced : A miniature version of V20 smartphone
LG has been consistent in launching new devices and the recent announcement regarding the launch of the LG Q8 pushed the speculations at a greater pace. The phone has excellent features at a price of 599 Euros (Approx. Rs.44,960). It will be launched in the upcoming month across Europe, while its availibility in the other smartphone markets is not confirmed yet.
LG has come up with a mid-range smartphone, the LG Q8, a week after it launched the LG Q6, the Q6+ and the Q6α. The phone looks similar in touch and feel to the LG V20 which was announced last year. Gone are the days when a phone was purchased merely because of its ability to make calls and simple features. These days, smartphones are sold just for their bold features like a good camera and other advantageous specifications. Users have different needs and the ones who expect a high-resolution screen and camera could very well consider the handset from LG.
The LG Q8 sports a dual camera at the rear with a 13-megapixel sensor (1/2.6", 1.12µm, f/1.8) and a 8-megapixel wide angle lens. The front camera stands at 5 megapixels which can record a 1080p video in comparison to the 4K 2160p video which the primary camera can shoot. The Q8 has two screens on its front, one, the main screen has a 5.2-inch QHD panel and second, a smaller screen on the top. It runs on the operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat, and powered by Snapdragon 820 processor. The phone has a 4GB RAM and storage capacity of 32GB, not to forget the availability of microSD slot.
The phone has passed through the IP67 rating of the smartphones, which makes it stand out given the water and dust resistant nature. The LG Q8 also appears closer to the LG V34 smartphone which was launched in Japan last year, considering its specs and other details like the IP67 rating. Preparing for launch, the smartphone is speculated to price 599 Euros (Approx. Rs.44,960), which shall be up for availability in Europe later this month. Another added advantage of the phone is its 3,000 mAh non-removable battery that is a plus for a phone of this size.
