LG Q8+ gets certified in South Korea, could be a compact LG V30
Dubbed the LG Q8+, two new variants of the smartphone have surfaced on KCC listings over in South Korea, identified by the model numbers LM-Q815S and LM-Q815L, with the existence of the pair being further confirmed by Google Play. Now, at the moment, no specific details in regards to what LG’s new device will offer are known, but a design based on the LG V30 is extremely likely. If accurate, this means consumers can expect a new 18:9 display of roughly 5.5-inches in size and reduced top and bottom bezels. Additionally, following in the footsteps of last year’s device, a dual-camera setup on the rear is expected to make a return.
Moving on to the internal side of things, considering last year’s smartphone shipped with the Snapdragon 820 on the inside, the inclusion of the Snapdragon 821 in this year’s model would seem like a natural step. Alternatively, though, LG could attempt to position the smartphone as a direct competitor to Xiaomi's Mi 8 SE by featuring the new Snapdragon 710. In either case, the LG Q8+ is expected to ship with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Presently, it’s unclear when exactly LG will choose to unveil the smartphone, but if the brand decides to follow the same schedule as last year, an announcement in late-July followed by shipments in August would be the most likely scenario.
