LG released the LG Q8 in July 2017 as a ‘mini variant’ of the LG V20. While it does sport a smaller screen than the V20, one of the significant improvements is that it comes with an always-on secondary display. The LG Q8 has a 5.2-inch Quad HD IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. Furthermore, it has Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
The phone runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat) with LG’s custom LG UX 5.0 skin on top. At its core, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC clocked at 2.15 GHz. As for the memory configuration, it offers 4GB RAM with 32GB internal storage (expandable up to 256 GB via a microSD card). It has a battery capacity of 3000 mAh, which is good enough to support the 5.2-inch display smoothly.
LG Q8 flaunts a dual-camera setup – a 13MP+8 MP megapixel rear camera and a 5MP front camera. Another great thing about the phone is that it has an IP67 certification, and is thus, water resistant up to 1.5 metres. Also, the rear panel has a Fingerprint Sensor. Like most high-end LG phones, the LG Q8 also has a 32-bit quad DAC support.
There are two colour variants for the LG Q8 – Sweet Pink and Urban Titan. In India, the price of the phone is Rs. 9,990.
