$249 LG K8 smart phone has top selfie camera features

LG, better known for its top selling televisions, has announced the release of the LG K8 smartphone in Australia.

It will sell  at JB Hi-Fi for $249 RRP.

The LG K8 may be cheap but the company says it includes top-tier camera features like Auto Shot and Gesture Shot.

The LG K8 has a slim arched screen and woven back cover that fits the curves of your hand.
