LG K8V

Description

The LG K8V is based on the LG K8 that can already be bought outside the US, offering relatively similar specs in a slightly different looking package. Running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, the LG K8V sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels - which we guess is acceptable for an affordable phone. The new device is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, further offering an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 1.5 GB of RAM, and a 2125 mAh battery. HD Voice and global roaming capabilities are also included. The K8V has 16 GB of internal memory, though only 9.3 GB are usable. Luckily, the handset supports microSD cards (up to 128 GB).

This device is also known as LG VS500, LG K8 V
