The LG K8 is the latest addition to its K line up of smartphones, that are basically low-end devices for budget consumers. The K8 borrows its design from previous K-series devices. It has a patterned plastic back that includes volume keys and power button. The device is 8.7mm thick and weighs around 157 grams.

LG K8 Specifications

Like we said before, this is an entry level smartphone with low-end hardware for the budget minded. Here are the official specifications for this upcoming device.

  • A 5 inch 720p IPS display
  • MediaTek MT6735, a quad-core 64-bit chipset
  • 1.5GB of RAM
  • 8GB internal storage, expandable via microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
  • 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 5MP selfie camera
  • 2,125mAh battery
  • LTE connectivity
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with LG UI

LG has placed all the physical buttons at the back of the device, so there’s nothing on the sides except the charging port and 3.5mm headphone jack. Apparently, it’s easier to lock/unlock your phone and adjust volume from the back of the device.

LG K8 Price

The LG K8 (K350N) has no release date as of yet and nothing has been said about its pricing. It will be available in two colors, White and Blue. More information on the device will be announced at Mobile World Congress 2016. It should be available in Korea, European countries, India and other select places when launched. LG will most likely also release this budget smartphone in the United States.
