A new phone called the LG Q8 has been launched by the brand with specifications and features that closely resemble one of the other LG cell phones, the V20, which is priced at around $480. The latter came out in the last year and was a moderate hit.
The first news of the LG Q8 was seen on the Italian site of the brand, which failed to mention the price or the specs of the phone. While some people had a good experience with the LG cell phone called the V20, it lacked the premise for higher audio recording and instead came with an option for a removable battery.
To make up for these minor inconveniences, one of the best LG cell phones, the Q8 was launched with certain features that overtook the V20 in many ways. Some of these features are:
- A smaller 5.2-inch display as compared to the V20 display size of the 5.7-inch

- An IP67 certification
- Water resistance abilities
Some other specifications of the phone include:

- It comes with a 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
- With 4K video capture capacity, it comes with a 4 GB RAM and a storage capacity of 32 GB
- The Q8 boasts of an expandable storage of 2 TB and a 3,000mAH battery
