The Korean company has officially announced the new LG Q8, a terminal that aims directly at the high end and in essence comes to be practically as a mini version of the LG V20.
This is confirmed not only by the design and the external finish, but also by the format of the panel and by the presence of a double screen configuration. It also holds the double rear camera and most of the specs we’ve seen on its older brother.
Its housing is constructed of aluminum and is IP67 certified, which means LG Q8 is dust resistant and can withstand water immersion problems (up to a meter deep for up to 30 minutes).
Taking a look at their hardware-level specifications we find:
- 2-inch Quantum IPS main screen with QHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440 pixels).
- SoC Snapdragon 820 with quad-core CPU.
- GPU Adreno 530.
- 4 GB of RAM.
- 32 GB of storage capacity.
- Double rear camera of 13 MP and 8 MP, front of 5 MP.
- 000 mAh battery.
- Secondary display with resolution of 160 x 1,040 pixels.
- Android N as operating system.
As we see is not bad, LG Q8 is a smartphone that far surpasses the recently released LG Q6, a terminal that is a mini version of LG G6 although very trimmed, as it has a SoC Snapdragon 435 instead of a Snapdragon 821 and it lacks the dual rear camera configuration as well.
We still do not have details on the exact price of the LG Q8, but the first information suggests that could be around 700 dollars.
