The LG Q8 is a compact version of V20, Now with Water-Proofing


LG’s V20 was a fantastic phone, keeping the durability and camera performance in mind. Provided some of the best experiences that Android has to offer. Now LG has the Q8 ready for launch with the same set of features like the Dual-Cameras,�a second display for quick peak into your notifications. It also had 32-bit quad DAC for astounding audio experience and it was rather large device. But the LG Q8 is taking all the right features from it. And now comes in a smaller overall package with added Water-Proofing this time.


The Water-proofing, does take away one of the most convenient feature from the Q8 that’s the Removable battery. No more hot swapping batteries now. Following are the Specs of the New device the LG Q8.

LG also recently launched the Q6 being the mini version of the G6 but with mid-range specs. But the LG Q8 offers a sweet set of specs and on top it’s waterproof and small size adds to become a complete package.


The only one thing its missing is a Full-Vision display, if that could have made its way in this device. Then this would have been the perfect Mini version of any flagship ever made. In which markets could it arrive is yet not known, and the same goes for the pricing as well.
