At the end of the previous month, an LG phone with model number LM-Q815S was approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The LM-Q815S device along with LM-Q815L sub-mobile was also certified by Korean Communications Commission (KCC) at the beginning of this month. The exact identity of these phones has been revealed through a list of Google Play supported devices. It has been found that aforementioned smartphone is the upcoming LG Q8+ smartphone.
Google has a dedicated page that contains list of devices that are supported by Google Play. The aforementioned LM-Q815S and LM-Q815L have also appeared there. Both the devices have a product name of LG Q8+. The WFA certification of the device has revealed that it features dual-band Wi-Fi and Android Oreo. However, nothing else is known on the specs of the Q8+.
Last year, LG had launched the LG Q8 smartphone in August. According to South Korean media, the Q8 had arrived as a stripped-down version of the LG V20 flagship from 2016. Hence, it is likely that the LG Q8+ could be a downgraded edition of the LG V30 smartphone. Like last year, LG may time its launch in the third quarter of this year.
This year seems to be a busy one for LG. It has already launched LG V30 ThinQ, G7 ThinQ, LG V35 ThinQ, Q7 series, Q Stylus series, X2 and X5 smartphones. After the rumored LG G8+, the company will be also debuting the LG V40 flagship phone.
