It's official! LG Q6 is announced with three variants, each sporting FullVision Display

24

After several leaks over the last week or so, LG tonight officially introduced the LG Q6. This is the first phone to be announced from its new Q-series mid-range lineup, offering premium features at a "competitive price." At its centerpiece is a FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio surrounded by slim bezels and a sturdy frame made of 7000-series aluminum. Also, there is no "unsightly" camera bump at the back, as LG points out.

But now comes the tricky part: there are three different variants of the LG Q6. All of them feature a 5.5-inch display with FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2160 pixels). Powering all is the Snapdragon 435 chipset, containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. But they differ in the amount of RAM and storage they ship with. The LG Q6+ offers 4GB of RAM with 64GB of native storage. It is available in Astro Black, Ice Platinum and Marine Blue. The LG Q6 comes with 3GB of RAM along with 32GB of native storage, and color options are Astro Black, Ice Platinum, Mystic White and Terra Gold. Lastly, the LG Q6a (stylized Q6α) comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. Colors available are Astro Black, Ice Platinum and Terra Gold.

All three versions of the LG Q6 come with a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing selfie shooter that takes wide angle shots at 100 degrees. The square camera mode lets you produce collages made up of multiple square images. All three LG Q6 variants come with Android 7.1.1 pre-installed, along with LG's UX 6.0 interface featuring goodies like facial recognition system that quickly unlocks the device. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and LG highlights the fact that the cell in use has undergone rigorous safety checks.



You will find the LG Q6 on sale in key Asian markets starting in August followed by releases in Europe, Latin America and North America. Pricing has yet to be announced, but it is safe to assume that the Q6+ would be the priciest of the bunch, while the Q6a would be most affordable.
