The affordable LG K8 2017 could arrive at Verizon soon
One of the cheapest Nougat-powered smartphones, the LG K8 2017 made its debut in the United States early this year at T-Mobile, but under a different name (LG Aristo). Last week, another US-based carrier, U.S. Cellular announced it would offer the LG K8 2017.
It appears that the LG K8 2017 will soon make its debut at Verizon as well. The smartphone has been recently spotted at the official Bluetooth SIG member website where it's been granted the needed certification.
The phone was listed at Bluetooth SIG with its model number, LG-VS501, a clear indication that it will make its debut at Verizon. If Big Red won't change something, the LG K8 2017 should come with a conventional 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor under the hood, coupled with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage.
The rest of the phone's highlights include a 5-inch HD (720p) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2,500 mAh battery. Surely, LG K8 2017 will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.
