LG Debuts Q Series with FullVision Displays
LG today announced the Q series, a new range of handsets that offer high-end features at more affordable price points. The first devices in the Q series are the Q6+, Q6, and Q6Î±, which take cues from the G6. All three devices feature a 5.5-inch, 18:9 display with full HD+ resolution (2,160 by 1,080 pixels) and minimized bezels. The phones are protected by 7000 series aluminum frames with rounded corners that match the curvature of the display, much like that of the G6. The Q6 and variants offer many the G6's software features, such as Android 7.1 Nougat, the square camera, and Google Assistant, while adding facial recognition for unlocking the phone. The main camera has a standard-angle 13-megapixel sensor and the front camera has a 100-degree, wide-angle 5-megapixel sensor. The Q6 handsets are powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor and include a 3,000mAh battery, microUSB, Bluetooth, WiFi, and NFC. The Q6+ has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, the Q6 has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and the Q6Î± has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. These variants allow LG to set different price points for the phones. LG said the Q6 series will go on sale in Asia shortly, followed by Europe, Latin America, and North America.
