LG's K8 V officially lands on Verizon Wireless on June 16, but we've seen this phone before.
It's a rebranded version of the LG K8, which was announced back at Mobile World Congress in February. This time around, it joins Verizon with a slightly different design: a soft-touch finish instead of the original phone's more eye-catching ballistic nylon backplate.
You can preorder the K8 V today for $144 off contract, or for $6 per month for 24 months on a payment plan.
This is not a flagship device like the G5 or V10; instead it is an affordable, entry-level option. Despite the low-end specs, the K8 V is thankfully up-to-date on Android (it runs version 6.0) and has a removable battery, which is a bonus for people who value swapping out their juice packs.
Plus, as an international device, the K8 V has global roaming capabilities but you do need a international service plan from the carrier to use it.
