LG Q8 (2018)

Its been only a few weeks since LG introduced Q7 and Q7+, now, the company has launched Q8 (2018), a slightly more powerful model which can also be considered as the successor of the Q8 (2017). This comes with a larger 6.2-inch FullVision display but packed the same Snapdragon 450 octa-core chipset.

RAM and storage are 4GB and 64GB respectively, with an option provided to expand it up to 2TB via a MicroSD card. At the back is a 16MP camera with a fingerprint sensor placed right below it, and there is an 8MP camera at the front for selfie. The usual range of connectivity are present, while it draws its power from a 3300mAh battery.

Perhaps what makes the Q8 special and set it apart is its built-in stylus that lets users take notes even when the screen is off. It is military grade MIL-STD 810G certified for durability and also earned IP68 rating for water and dust resistant. HiFi Quad DAC and DTS: X 3D Surround Sound audio enhancements are not left behind.
