LG has just announced three new entry and mid-range smartphones: the LG Q6, Q6 Plus and Q6α. In fact it is LG G6 “Mini”, with the same big screen “borderless” but with a technical sheet and a camera more modest.
We can only praise the announcement of LG: the Korean manufacturer understood that to make the innovations of smartphones as accessible as possible, they had to integrate them in devices that do not necessarily cost half a SMIC. LG has just announced three new smartphones, the LG Q6, Q6 Plus and Q6α, devices that currently ignore the price, but the latter should be logically softer than its flagship, the LG G6.
Large screens and a modest technical sheet
The three smartphones share the same design. Main originality, they benefit from a large and long screen of 5.5 inches, much higher than on traditional smartphones. A screen similar to that of the LG G6, except that it is a little smaller (5.5 inches against 5.7 inches on the LG G6) and has a Full HD + resolution (2160 × 1080 pixels, 442 ppi) and not a QHD definition. We really liked the LG G6 screen during its test and I sincerely hope that the displays of these three smartphones are of the same quality level.
Smart input and mid-range compulsory, if the chassis is still metal, it seems that the hull is now made of plastic. The dimensions of the three devices are 142.5 × 69.3 × 8.1mm (smaller but thicker than the LG G6), for a weight of 149 grams. LG also seems to have made savings on the shell of its smartphone: these LG Q6 do not have a dual photo sensor nor a fingerprint sensor.
From LG G6 mini?
As for the differences between these three Q6s, they are only relevant to the technical data sheet. All three carry a Snapdragon 435, a battery of 3000 mAh, and a photo sensor of 13 MP. But the Q6 Plus has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory, compared to a 3/32 GB combo on the Q6 and 2/16 GB on the Q6α.
As we said a little higher, it is not known at what price will be sold the LG Q6. These will however be available next month in Asia and will arrive “after” in Europe, the United States and Latin America.
