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 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.
