Fans and enthusiasts of the LG Q6, considered by many to be the miniature version of the flagship LG G6 model, with some traits derived from the LG V20 as well, are in for some good news. The new device will soon start selling internationally. The Q6 will first be rolled out in LG’s home country of South Korea in the first week of August while markets in “Asia, Europe, Middle East and the Americas” will receive the devices slightly later.
LG Q6 Specs and Features
Many experts have stated that the LG Q6 is the miniature waterproof variant of the LG G6 and we agree. The form factor and the design philosophy are certainly reminiscent of the G6. The new device will have three memory variants: these are the LG Q6, the LG Q6+, and the LG Q6a. All three variants will sport an identical 5.5-inch display capable of delivering a full HD+ resolution of 2,160×1,080 pixels. Also, the display itself will be stunning thanks to the pixel density of 442 ppi (pixels per inch). Both the phone’s body, as well as the edges of the screen, have been curved at the edges to make the display feel slightly bigger than it is.
Also on board is the 7000 series aluminum frame as well as the minimalistic bezel style which has recently found currency. At the heart of the device is the very neat Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset, which will provide a lag free operating experience.
