LG unveiled the Q8 back in July, and today it announced the start of the sales of the 5.2” smartphone. The first market to get the smaller LG V20 sibling is Korea, where the phone comes in Titan or Pink and costs KRW616,000 ($545).
According to Lee Sang-gyu, head of LG Korea Mobile Group, the LG Q8 is positioned as a more affordable option than the flagship LG G6. He added that the Q-series will “contain the core functionality of a premium product at a reasonable price”.
The LG Q8 has a Snapdragon 820 chipset, a QHD screen and a secondary ticker display like in the LG V20. The RAM is 4 GB, and the Q8 has 32 GB storage. Unlike its bigger and similar-looking sibling, here the battery is sealed and has 3,000 mAh capacity.
The dual camera on the back has one 13 MP regular module and a 135° 8MP one.
LG also announced that the Q6 with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage will be launched in Korea on August 29 alongside the Q6+ with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.
