After launching the mid-range Q6 smartphone in India last month, South Korean electronics giant LG has launched their another mid-range smartphone with FullVision display, christened as the “LG Q6+” in the Indian tech market. The LG Q6+ is an offline exclusive smartphone, unlike the LG Q6, which is now exclusively retailing on Amazon India with a price tag of Rs. 14,990. Carried a price tag of Rs. 17,990, the new LG Q6+ is now already made available for purchase in India via all leading offline stores across the country in Astro Black and Ice Platinum colour options. To recall, the South Korean company launched their mid-range LG Q6+ smartphone in the month of July this year at an event in Poland along with company’s another two mid-range devices, LG Q6 and LG Q6a. Among these three models, the LG Q6 has already made its debut on the Indian tech market a month ago. The main highlight of the new LG Q6+ is its FullVision display with 18:9 aspect ratio as we have seen on the company’s flagship LG G6. Instead of a fingerprint recognition button, the LG Q6+ features LG’s proprietary “Face Recognition” technology for high-grade biometric security.
LG Q6+ Design:
In terms of design, the new LG Q6+ borrows its design language from the company’s previous flagship smartphone, LG G6. The LG Q6+ comes with an ultra-strong 7000 series aerospace aluminium unibody construction and an aluminium curved frame all around, giving it an overall premium outlook. The 7000 series aerospace aluminium metal frame makes the devices quite durable. The smartphone also features onscreen navigation buttons and sans the fingerprint sensor. The volume up-down keys are placed on the left-hand edge, while the power/lock button is situated on the right-hand edge of the smartphone. The rear panel of the handset houses a 13MP primary camera, a LED flash module, while the top front panel features a 5MP selfie camera and an earpiece. The speaker grilles are seen on the rear end of the device, while a 3.5mm audio socket is placed on the very bottom edge of the handset along with a USB Type-B 2.0 charging port sitting in the middle.
