Successor to LG's K8 V, gets certified from FCC

LG cutting corners to keep costs low, targets the low and mid range market.

    South Korean tech giant LG recently received certification for one of its devices from Federal Communications Commission (FCC), in the United States. Though there are no confirmations as to which phone in the LG lineup acquired the certification. Based on the model number of the device we can safely assume that the phone in debate is likely to be the successor of the LG K8 V, as the model number of both these phones belongs to the same series.

    The LG K8 V, was released in April, last year and was positioned as a mid-range device. The device ran on a MediaTek MT6735 chipset and the model number was LG-VS500, whereas the model number on the new device which got the certification is LG-VS501.

    So considering the model number and other details like the company announcing its plans to launch a new version this year, it might be safe to assume that the device could most likely be the successor to the LG K8 V.

The smartphone will sport a 5MP camera at the front and 13MP rear camera and it will be powered by a 2500mAh battery. In addition, the device is believed to be rolled out with Android 7.0 Nougat.

    On the contrary, LG seems to be cutting a lot of corners in an attempt to keep the costs as low as possible as it is targeting the low and mid range market with these phones. Keeping that aspect in mind the company seems to be offering value for money.
