After the launch of the G6’s mini version, the V20 also gets a smaller counter part – the LG Q8. The phone will be available in “select European markets” with Asian markets getting next month. The LG Q8 is priced at US$ 778.
The Q8 will not feature the Full-Vision as the LG G6(2,880 x 1,440 resolution and 18:9 ratio) display as the V20 didn’t have it either. It will, however, inherit the secondary display that sits beside the front camera. The main display is a 5.2-inch QHD screen.
The LG Q8 gets a dual lens camera setup on the rear. The primary lens is a 16MP f/1.8 aperture with dual-tone LED Flash, Laser AF, 78-degree lens, OIS and 4K video recording. The secondary lens is an 8MP snapper with f/2.4 aperture, and135-degree lens. The front houses a 5MP front camera with f/1.9 aperture, 120-degree wide-angle lens.
The LG Q8 also has water resistance capabilities (IP67). It is powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM & 32GB ROM. It has a 3000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. It also has a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC for a clear sound by minimizing distortion and ambient noise by up to 50%.
