A beautiful device it is, with a unique twist. It was made from Plastic and sports two different design from the back. The lower part looks more smooth with nice feel while holding it. While the top part has lines that looks rough and it houses rear camera.

There’s a dual-LED flash underneath for bright photos in low light environment. It measures 8.5 mm slim by the side and weighs 135g overall. No fingerprint scanner at the back which is really disappointing, when most budget smartphones are coming with the feature. The device is available in Black, White and Blue colors as well.

In terms of graphics, the ARM Mali-T720 MP4 with a single core is fully in charge, reaching a clock speed of 550 MHz.

For multitasking, it comes with just 1GB of RAM with 640 MHz memory speed for light multitasking. In the storage department, 16GB internal storage is available to accommodate all your files and games. You can also upgrade up to 32GB with a memory card. The G8 runs on Android 7.1 Nougat operating system with modified user interface.
