The LG Q8 might surprise you

The LG Q8 might surprise you”

Given some of the less than impressive "mini" phones that we've seen in the past, the LG Q8 looks like a pretty nice option for folks that want a smaller Android device. Talking about its software front, the new LG Q8 runs company's proprietary UX 5.0 light custom UI skin, based on Google's Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The new Q8 is like a small version of the V20.

It has a 5.2-inch QHD IPS display (compared to the 5.7-inch V20), and will include the handy second screen at the top of the phone.

About that launch, though: so far, LG has only confirmed the Q8 for release in Italy. LG has also included a suite of recording tools, allowing you to potentially capture better video than you would with other phones. Made out of metal, the LG Q8 is IP68-certified, thus being dust- and water-resistant, just like the LG G6. The handset should be able to survive up to 1.5 meters underwater for up to half an hour. The main features of the camera is support of OIS. "It can shoot 4K 2160p video with the dual camera having a combination of a 13MP sensor (1/2.6", 1.12µm, f/1.8) and wide-angle lens (135°/10mm, f/2.4). There's a fingerprint reader below these cameras, and round on the front of the phone lives a 5-megapixel camera with wide angle lens.

The IP67 waterproof rating does come at the cost of a removable battery, but for many users (including those prone to accidents) that'll be probably be preferable. Dimensionally, the handset measures 149 x 71.9 x 8 mm and weighs 146 grams.
