LG is preparing to release a new budget model. We received information about the updated model LG K8, that is LG K8 2018. The new model, like the previous two, will not have good specifications and performance, but its price does not allow it. Those who need a cheap smartphone should pay attention to it.
As for the 2018 model, its specification does not look very good, but I’m sure that this phone will provide sufficient performance for less demanding users. We know what component will get LG K8 2018, as well as how much it will cost and when we can buy it. Now I will try to briefly tell you all this information.
The display will remain the same, a 5-inch IPS LCD screen with HD resolution (720 x 1280, 293 ppi). HD resolution is already gone in the last century, but on a small screen it still shows a high-quality image. The front of the smartphone is protected by a layer of glass Gorilla Glass 4. Whether the design of the LG K8 2018 will change, we can not say yet, there were no leaks that would reveal this information. But we do not expect to see any drastic changes.
Will productivity increase? Fortunately, yes. The updated phone will be equipped with 8-core Mediatek MT6750 processor (4 cores Cortex-A53 1500 MHz + 4 cores Cortex-A53 1000 MHz) with graphics processor ARM Mali-T860 MP2 400 MHz. Recall that the K8 2017 is equipped with 4-core Mediatek with Cortex-A53 1.3 GHz cores, so the performance will clearly increase. RAM will also become slightly larger – 2 GB, and for the user will be allocated 16 GB of memory, which can be expanded.
LG K8 2018 will receive cameras with the same resolution, but the light output will be better. Behind you will be a 13 megapixel camera with f / 2.0, auto focus and a diode flash, and on the front you will find a 5 megapixel camera with f / 2.2. The capacity of the battery will also increase, the phone will be equipped with a battery capacity of about 2700 mAh. It will work on the Android 8.0 operating system Nougat.
When will we see this smartphone? The premiere of the smartphone should take place at the end of this year, in December, and it will go on sale in the first quarter of 2018. It will cost a little less than 200 dollars, somewhere 180.
