LG K8 (2018) and K10 (2018) Officially Announced

LG K8 2018

LG has officially took the wraps off the 2018 edition of its K8 and K10 series smartphones in South Korea. The firm today announced that it will be displaying both device at the upcoming MWC event that is scheduled to begin next week. Full specifications of the device were also revealed by the firm.

The K8 (2018) is explicitly a replica of the 2017 model in terms of specs but there are few upgrades here-and-there that distinguish it from its predecessor. This comes with a 2GB of RAM instead of 1.5GB RAM, but it is powered by an under-clocked 1.3GHz quad-core processor, which may not perform as well as 1.4GHz Snapdragon 425 that powered the K8 (2017).

Parhaps, the only aspect where there is a noticeable upgrade is in software. The K8 (2018) runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat out-of-the-box and there has been an improvement in the camera software. LG has bundled tons of new features with the camera, these includes Auto Shot, Gesture Shot, Flash for Selfie, Timer Helper, and Quick Share. LG said that low-light photography has been improved in the 2018 model and there is now a new Low Light Noise Reduction feature that works in conjunction with the phone High Dynamic Range (HDR) for sharper and more contrast level. The LG K10 (2018) boasts all of these features as well.

The K10 (2018) sports nearly identical specs with its predecessor as well including the display, RAM, storage, and camera. It however packs a larger 3000mAh battery compared to the last year model 2800mAh battery. Both phones are clad in metal and they also sports fingerprint sensors at the back.

The K10 (2018) comes in three variants, K10, K10+, and K10α.
