LG Q8 (2018) Specs & Price: A Cheaper Alternative To V35 ThinQ

In May, LG announced a trio of Q7 smartphones as a less expensive alternative of the G7 ThinQ. Today, the Korean company has unveiled the LG Q8 (2018) as the more affordable alternative to the V35 ThinQ. The new Q8 (not the same as that of last year’s Q8) sports a huge 6.2” FullVision display and comes bundled with a built-in stylus.

The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 450 that arrives with octa-core CPU at 1.8 GHz coupled with 4 GB RAM and internal storage of 64 GB that can be expanded up to 2 TB storage (realistically it can’t go higher than 512 GB).

As far as camera is concerned, the LG Q8 (2018) comes with a single regular sensor on the back – 16 MP with PDAF, coupled with an LED flash instead of a tremendous wide-angle lens in its flagship devices the company is known for. At least the front camera has 5 MP for selfie and it comes with a Super Wide Angle of 100 degrees so you can include all your friends in the selfies.

The LG Q8 (2018) has a QC 3.0-compatible battery with 3,300 mAh capacity. Checkout the full specs, features, availability and price of LG Q8 (2018) below.
