LG has announced three new mid-range smartphones in its Q6 series – the LG Q6, Q6+, and Q6 alpha. As the name suggests, these smartphones are heavily inspired by the company’s G6 flagship, including its marquee feature, the Full Vision Display.
All three smartphones share the same 5.5-inch display featuring a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. Underneath the hood, a combination of Snapdragon 435 bundled with Adreno 505 GPU powers up all three handsets. The key difference between them is the amount of RAM and storage.
The LG Q6 features 2GB of RAM along with 16GB of built-in storage, while the LG Q6 Alpha comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. The top-of-the-line LG Q6+ features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage.
As far as cameras go, all three handsets feature the same 13MP primary camera. For selfies, the trio gets the same 5MP front-facing shooter with a 100-degree wide angle view. Juicing up these devices is the same 3,000mAh battery. Also, all three LG Q6 models run Android 7.1.1 Nougat straight out-of-the-box, layered with LG’s in-house UX 6.0 skin.
The new LG Q6 range will be available in Astro Black, Ice Platinum, and Terra Gold color options. The highlight of the LG Q6 range is its robust build quality thanks to the use of 7000-series aluminum.
The LG Q6 range is set for a launch in Asia sometime in August, while they are expected to hit US retailers in September. That said, pricing details still remain unknown.
