LG launches Q8, a smaller variant of the V20


LG quietly launched the Q8, which is by all accounts a mini V20. It doesn’t have a widescreen display like the Q6, but it does have a 5.2” QHD panel with a secondary display to the side of the selfie camera. The back also looks just like the V20, dual camera and all.

The LG Q8 is practically a flagship device. It has a metal body with IP67 waterproofing, Quad DAC, even a Snapdragon 820 chipset. Not quite the 821 inside the G6, but much, much better than the paltry Snapdragon 435 of the Q6.

LG Q8 will provide video stabilization and acoustic top with a 32-bit quad DAC HiFi. It has a metal housing. It is water-resistant and dust under IP67.  Other features include a battery of 3000 mAh, Snapdragon 820, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB storage, all clustered in a body of 8 mm. It weighs 146 grams and has support for LTE network. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out of the box.
