Although the LG G8 (2018) comes in the same design as the Q7, it is bigger (160.1 x 77.1 x 8.4 mm) and tougher (certified military safety standard ‘MIL-STD 810G’) and comes with a built-in stylus pen.

The Q8 (2018) has an 81% screen-to-body with slim bezels and a 6.2-inch Full HD+ FullVision display with 1080 x 2160 pixels screen resolution and 389ppi pixel density. With the stylus pen and big top quality display, this mid-range LG Q8 (2018) could easily pass or be a good alternative for a “Note” smartphone.

The 16MP primary shooter is on the rear alongside the LED flash and fingerprint sensor while on the front, a wide-angle 5MP camera is present.

On the inside, there is a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC powering the device. Storage-wise, the LG Q8 (2018) is available in only one variant that carries 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. The device has a micro SD card slot which allows for storage expansion of up to 2 Terabytes.

Coming out of the box running a modified Android Oreo v8.1 operating system, the LG Q8 (2018) is also IP68 certified for water and dust protection. Regarding power, the device comes with a non-removable 3,300mAh battery with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology.

For the time being, the LG Q8 (2018) will be available in its launch colour variants; Aurora Black and Moroccan Blue and cost approximately $470. The device is presently only available for purchase in Korea where it was launched but worldwide shipping is expected to commence soon.
