lg_k8Earlier this year LG announced a pair of new handsets in the form of the LG K7 and K10. However it was later revealed that Sony actually had a lot more K-series devices in the works, like the LG K4 that recently went on sale. A certain LG K8 was also revealed and it looks like without much fanfare, the handset has since gone on sale over in Europe.

The LG K8 appears to be identical to the LG K7 in terms of size, and one of the main differences is its higher resolution display. This means that we can look forward to a 5-inch 720p HD display, a MediaTek MT6735 processor under the hood, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, 1.5GB of RAM, 8-32G of storage, and a 2,125mAh battery.

The specs aren’t particularly amazing but the upside is that it at least comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow preinstalled. It is unknown if the LG K8 will make its way stateside, but given that we have seen the LG K7 make its way onto T-Mobile, we suppose it is possible that maybe the LG K8 could arrive eventually, but even if it didn’t, those specs don’t exactly scream high-end and there are probably a lot more affordable low-mid range handsets that are available.
