Forget Android Oreo, LG is still launching phones with Android Marshmallow in India
Looking for an LG smartphone with outdated operating system, LG K8 is here for you. The Korean manufacturer recently started selling Android 6.0 Marshmallow-powered K8 (model number X240i) in the country. With the recent launch of Oreo, the K8 is now two major Android versions old. To remind you, Marshmallow was originally introduced back in September 2015.
There is hardly anything exciting about the smartphone in terms of specifications. It packs run of the mill components like 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor, 5-inch HD screen and 13MP primary shooter.
With plethora of Android smartphones retailing at similar price-point with much better specifications (the latest example), LG K8 is unlikely to find many takers. With such product releases, no wonder LG is nowhere to be seen in the top five smartphone vendors in the Indian market.
