As we noted earlier today, LG has begun to roll its new G6 smartphone out to consumers across Europe and in some markets, the company is throwing in its mid-range K8 for good measure. In Spain, Germany and Romania, some buyers of the LG G6 will also receive the LG K8 (2017), which could potentially be passed on as a gift or used as a backup handset.
In terms of specs, the K8 (2017) is Bush League compared to its flagship cousin. There's a 5.0-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 425 SoC with 1.5 gigs of RAM and 16 GB of on-board storage. On the plus side, it does run on Android 7 Nougat off the bat, and there is a microSD slot that can facilitate a further 32 gigs of space. Overall, it's pretty underwhelming but hey, it's free!
Those in Germany shopping through Saturn.de can secure the bundle for €749, with the promise that the freebie LG K8 (2017) will be shipped out by May 15th. Orange Spain has a similar deal for Spanish consumers at the same price, with the further option of spreading the cost over a 24-month period. Finally, Orange Romania throws the K8 into the mix for a sum total of €719 on its website from today through May 7th. All of the deals are linked at the source.
