After teasing the Q6 on social media, LG has today officially launched the “LG Q6”, the first smartphone under its new Q series. The LG Q6 belongs to the mid-range category and carries a price tag of Rs. 14,990. The device will be available for sale exclusively on Amazon.in starting from 10th August. Similar to LG’s flagship G6, the Q6 features a FullVision Display with an 18:9 aspect ratio which is a rarity among mid-range phones. Encased in a metal frame constructed using 7000 series aluminium, the Q6 offers a durable build but still remains lightweight at 149g. Let’s take a look at rest of the package:
LG Q6 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD+ FullVision display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and 2160 x 1080 resolution at 442ppi, as opposed to the standard 16:9 screen ratio. As a result, the device has minimum bezels across the edges of the display which makes it comfortable to hold and offers better one-handed operation. Both the body and display features rounded corners and the phone is just 8.1mm thick without no camera bump. The Q6 is powered by a 1.4GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 435 processor with Adreno 505 GPU which is coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with LG UX 6.0 skin on top. The built-in Face recognition feature allows faster unlocking with less hassle.
Speaking of optics, it packs a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera with 100-degree wide-angle lens. The camera UI features a square camera mode and instant social share that makes it easy to create photo collages and share them across social networks. A 3000mAh non-removable battery keeps the device running and the Q6 also features a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Connectivity options include Dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, USB OTG, FM Radio, GPS and USB Type-C charging port. Comes in 3 colors – Astro Black, Ice Platinum, and Terra Gold.
Interestingly, LG is offering a 1-time free screen replacement within 6 months to buyers of LG Q6 in India.
