LG announces new Q8 phone

Q8 ... kate or kyu-ait ... what will you call it?

Regardless of what you call it, the new Q series from LG (there was the G, the K and the V already) will sort of take the place in between the G and the K.  The K being their 'economy' line up and the G/V being their flagship offering.

This new Q series is running on 2016's V series hardware with 2017 software, and looks to be great value for those who feel that the spec wars have finally peaked.

They let out the Q6 a while back, and it was sort of the 'mini' G6.

Let's see what the Q8 is packing, as it's very close to the V20 (which I don't like as the Q6 is more G, the Q8 is more V...  anyways...)

  • 5.2" 2560x1440 + 160x1040 secondary display
  • Snapdragon 820
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB storage + microSD
  • 16MP (f/1.8) / 8MP (f/2.4)
  • 3000mAh
  • QuadDAC
  • IP67
  • Android 7.0

The V20 was a great phone, and still very relevant as a great phone, even for someone like me, it would still hold up quite well.

There's no announcement on price or availability in the North American markets, but as I've always said, having more options is never a bad thing.

What do you think?
