LG has been among the biggest names when it comes to the world of consumer electronics. The company has been around for a long time, and has a global presence. Of late their smartphone division has been gaining quite some momentum, as they recently touched their highest ever market share (20%) in the US. Following the success of the LG G6, LG has today unveiled their latest smartphones of the LG Q Series: The LG Q6, Q6 Plus and Q6 Alpha.
The LG Q Series of smartphones offer LG’s FullVision display, which was one of the highlights of the LG G6. The Q6 devices are the first set of smartphones to get the FullVision display following the launch of the LG G6. Basically, it offers some of the most sought after features from LG at a more affordable price when compared to the flagship LG G6. Let us take a look at the specifications and features of the phones:
LG Q6 Series Smartphones: Specifications
The Q6 series of smartphones includes the regular Q6, the Q6 Plus and the Q6 Alpha. All the three phones come out into the markets with a 5.5 inched display. All the three displays offer the same 18.5:9 ratio, which is basically LG’s “FullVision” technology. All three of the phones come out into the markets with a sleek metal body.
Talking of the body, none of the phones feature a dual camera like the LG G6, and neither of them also feature a fingerprint scanner on the back. This makes the body look rather ordinary despite LG touting about it. Despite being named a ‘Plus’ variant, the LG Q6 Plus doesn’t really offer a large display, as is the case with most plus sized variants.
The primary difference between the three devices is that of the RAM and storage. The Q6 Plus comes out into the markets with 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of storage space, the regular LG Q6 features 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage space, while the Q6 Alpha runs on a mere 2GB of RAM along with 16GB of storage space. This looks quite weak when you compare it with many other 2017 smartphones, but it is likely that the Q6 Alpha would be priced in at a very low price point too.
LG, in their press release continues to stress on the fact that the extremely thin bezels on this FullVision Display is truly what makes this series of devices unique. LG has, in the past, found success with mid-priced to low-priced devices as the K series of smartphones have been quite a hit in the US Markets.
Talking of the camera, while the LG Q6 smartphones do not really feature the impressive dual camera that the LG G6 comes out with, their camera too, is decent. The phone features a 13MP primary camera on the back and a 5MP wide angle camera in the front. All three phones feature a 3000mAh battery.
All the three LG Q6 phones run on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. The phones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, and come out with the Google Assistant, Facial recognition and many other impressive features. Pricing details are yet to be revealed. The Q6 comes out in Astro Black / Ice Platinum / Mystic White / Terra Gold color variants. The Q6 Plus features Astro Black / Ice Platinum / Marine Blue variants while the Q6 Alpha would release in Astro Black / Ice Platinum / Terra Gold colors.
