LG shrank its dual-camera V20 to make the Q8

After a listing leaked out on the company’s Italian website, LG has now officially announced the Q8 smartphone.

The Q8 is the latest addition to LG’s new Q family of devices, following the announcement of the LG Q6, but the Q8 enters with more of a flagship status, with improved specs across the board.

The Q8 shares much of its DNA with the LG V20 – LG’s 2016 creator phone that never launched in Europe – although this version gives you a 5.2-inch display, so it’s more compact. It doesn’t have the 18:9 Full Vision display of the Q6 or G6, but it does have a button-free front panel.

Buyers can also expect to find IP67 water and dust resistance that’s capable of withstanding ingress of those substances for up to half an hour. Internals-wise, you’re pretty much getting the same as the V20: a Snapdragon 820 paired with 4GB RAM and a 3,000mAh battery — the V20 had a 3,200mAh. Otherwise, the biggest draw is the smaller body, although the screen retains the same 2,560 x 1,440 resolution.

The Q8 trumps the Q6 in the camera department, as this phone gets a dual-lens rear camera, while the Q6 makes do with a single lens. LG has fitted with the Q8 with a 16-megapixel f/1.8 standard lens and an 8-megapixel f/2.4 wide angle lens, while on the front is a 5-megapixel f/1.9 wide angle lens.
