Some months back this year, LG introduced its Q7 series as a range of affordable alternatives to LG G7 ThinQ. Now, LG is expanding the series with new phones primarily titled Q8.
These LG Q8 smartphones come with a stylus, as a highlighting feature, as well as a generously large 6.2-inch display. In LG’s terms, it is the FullVision display. Furthermore, like its Q7 siblings, the LG Q8 is meant to be a much cheaper alternative to the LG V35 ThinQ.
In terms of primary specifications, it is a pretty modest smartphone. The processor is a Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz while the RAM is 4 GB. Along with this, the internal storage is a good 64 GB and it is expandable up to a massive 2 TB. Whether or not it is possible to do so as of now is irrelevant.
Coming to the camera, there’s a single 16 MP camera at the back with PDAF and there’s no fancy stabilization tech. At the front though, the 5 MP camera has a wide-angle 100 degree lens. There’s USB-C type port and a QC 3.0 enabled 3,300 mAh battery.
Coming to the one flagship-like feature this phone has, is the Hi-Fi Quad DAC as well as DTS-X 3D Surround sound. This should sound encouraging for anyone who cares about the music quality.
The LG Q8 is priced around $ 480 which roughly translates to INR RS 32,900. We aren’t sure if or when the phone will come to India. But pricing it well could be challenging. Keep watching this space for more information on this as well as other upcoming smartphones in 2018.
