The Q6 lineup was announced not that long ago at the LG event introducing 3 new phones with full screen devices – G6 alike devices with mid-range internals.
LG has announced not one, not two but three new midrangers that we expect – will very likely compel to those who want to get the latest and newest hype – a big display in a small form factor.
LG offers just that with its new devices, the Q6 lineup. The newly introduced devices are namely the Q6, Q6 Plus and the Q6a.
The specifications for all of the devices are ‘nearly’ identical and there are a few differences here and there, so let’s take a look at those differences.
What you get with all of the “Q” series:
With all of the three, newly announced Q series devices you get a
- 5.5″ 18:9 aspect ratio FullHD 2160×1080 (~442ppi) IPS display
- the same dimensions for all of the devices at 142.5 x 69.3 x 8.1mm at 149 grams
- 64GB Storage and 4GB RAM (Q6 Plus)
- 32GB Storage and 3GB RAM (Q6)
- 16GB Storage and 2GB RAM (Q6a)
- Snapdragon 435
- 13MP Standard (no wide angle here) cameras on the back
- 5MP Wide angles on the front
- 3000 mAh batteries, LTE/ 3G-2G network capabilities
- Bluetooth 4.2
- USB-C 2.0
- FM Radio
- and 3 colour options including: Astro Black, Ice Platinum and Marina blue.
The Q6 Plus is the best packed overall, and will likely cost you the most.
The major difference between the Q6 Plus and the other two versions is the storage and the amount of RAM you get. Instead of 3GB (Q6), 2GB (Q6a) RAM you get 4GB in total.
Storage wise, if you pick up the Q6 Plus you’ll receive 64GB of space while the Q6 offers 32GB and the Q6a 16GB.
All of the above mentioned devices will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and will also have Facial Recognition built-in, hence the lack of the fingerprint sensor on all of the devices. The LG G6 devices are expected to receive an update to have this functionality in the next few weeks.
LG hasn’t mentioned any release dates or prices just yet, but with these specs, we would expect the devices to fall into a high, mid, low-end midrange price categories that could be between £149-£349. This of course isn’t confirmed but this would be our best bet at this point. We’ll be sure to let you know the exact prices once we know more.
