LG have announced some exciting new details about their new smartphone the LG Q this week. The LG Q6 will be the first smartphone to feature FullVision display following the LG G6.
LG’s Q series will be competitively priced smartphones that offer premium features. The LG Q6 is the first of the line to be announced and will be followed by the Q6+, the Q6 and the Q6a. The difference in each of these phones is the memory and storage. The Q6+ has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM while the Q6 delivers slightly less at 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. A step down from there is the cheapest device in the range, the Q6a which features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM.
It is becoming popular to have minimised bezels in premium smartphones and LG are capitalising on this with the Q6 which is affordable mid-price device. It features a 5.5” FHD+ FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, providing an immersive experience for gamers as well as video playback. It has a “bezel-less” form factor which prevents accidental touching of the screen while in your hand but still maximising the screen.
The LG Q6’s design is stylish and minimalist, with rounded corners and sleek curves. Presented in a sleek metallic frame for sturdiness, it is still lightweight and perfect for everyday use. The metal frame is crafted from 7000 series aluminium, which is amongst the strongest aluminium available. The battery included has also undergone testing to withstand heat, shock and penetration.
Thanks to the ergonomic research carried out during development of the LG G6, the Q6 not only looks good but is easy to use one-handed. It has a Face Recognition feature for ease of unlocking. It also has a 100-degree wide angle selfie camera and those who have a passion for photography will appreciate the 18:9 aspect ratio of the FullVision display. There’s also a Square Camera Mode for collage creation using multiple images.
The LG Q6 is due to hit the market in Asia next month and will soon be followed by Europe, Latin America and North America.
