The Q-series of LG is composed of devices which can be defined as affordable variants of its major flagships. The first devices of the line-up are Q6 and Q8 which are, respectively, cheap versions of the G6 and V20. Recently, the South Korean company launched the Q7 trio to offer cheap alternatives to people who can not afford its latest flagship G7. Now, it seems that it is readying the LG Q8+, which is expected to come as an affordable version of the V30. Earlier this month, the handset surfaced on a KCC listing (the Korean equivalent of the American FCC) in two variant identified by the codenames LM-Q815S and LM-Q815L.
Now the name of the handset has popped up again on a list of devices which support Google Play confirming its existence. The listing mentions LG Q8+ and its codename cv7an in the modding community. The first of the two variants has also been certified by Wi-Fi Alliance. However, despite these sightings, specs of the handset hasn’t been revealed. So, at the moment, the only thing we can do is recap the main specs of the original Q8 which is a high-end handset even though it is more affordable than devices from the G and V-series.
The original LG Q8 has a full metal unibody design and an IP67 certification making it dustproof and water-resistant (up to 1m for 30 mins). It has a main display with a size of 5.2 inches and a Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, as well as a secondary Always On display to show notifications with a 1.8-inch size and a resolution of 160 x 1040 pixels. Under the hood, it has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. It even sports a wide-angle dual camera with a 16 MP resolution.
