LG has released a new smartphone under the Q family, packing two displays on the front, two cameras at the back, and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU – the LG Q8.
The LG Q8 bears similarities to last year’s LG V20 given the dual screen and dual rear camera setups. Both phones are also powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor. The difference is that the Q8 has a smaller 5.2-inch screen and 3,000mAh battery, and an IP68-certified metal body.
