Price point of the LG Q7 series is revealed in South Korea, not exactly cheap
Getting straight to the point, the regular Q7 is being offered for 495.000 Korean Won, or $456, while the slightly more premium LG Q7+ goes for $526, pitting it directly against the OnePlus 6 in terms of pricing and thus making it that bit harder to sell. In any case, for the prices, LG is offering two devices that are differentiated by very little. This means a typical metal construction is largely present on the outside of both along with a 5.5-inch 18:9 display, while taking a peek at the spec sheet reveals a mid-range MediaTek MT6750S processor clocked at 1.5GHz. In terms of RAM, the regular Q7 variant receives 3GB, with the Q7+ model getting a slight boost to 4GB. Additionally, it’s worth noting that the former contains 32GB of internal storage and the latter 64GB. In either case, all of this is backed up by a 3,000mAh battery and Android 8.0 Oreo.
Moving on to the camera department, both smartphones boast the same 8-megapixel selfie sensor, although on the rear the Q7+ receives an upgraded 16-megapixel lens. The regular Q7, on the other hand, makes do with a 13-megapixel sensor. Also, unlike the recent trends in the industry, it’s worth pointing out that no dual-camera setup is present.
LG is yet to confirm the pricing of the Q7α, but considering it boasts identical specs to the LG Q7 albeit with a lower-resolution selfie camera, pricing should be expected to start just below $450. For now, though, it’ll remain to be seen how well LG’s new offerings sell considering the pretty strong competition they're facing.
