While many users might be more familiar with the G and V series, LG smartphones are also available under the Q series moniker. Made to cater the mid-range market, the company today has officially unveiled the series’ new models for 2018, the Q7+, Q7, and Q7α.
Building upon the foundation left by the Q6 series that the company launched last year, the new Q7 series looked almost identical to its predecessor. This is not exactly surprising though since all devices within the Q7 series are equipped with 5.5-inch full HD+ 18:9 FullVision display as per their Q6 predecessors.
There are only two main factors that separate them apart which are their memory and internal storage configurations as well as camera setup. Specifically, both Q7 and Q7α are equipped with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage while the Q7+ carries 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Of course, all three models are able to support microSD with storage space of up to 2TB.
In terms of camera, the Q7 and Q7α feature 13MP PDAF rear camera although the Q7+ receives a higher resolution PDAF rear camera with 16MP sensor. As for front camera, 5MP sensor with 100-degree super wide-angle lens is a standard for all three models although Q7 and Q7+ in certain markets might come with 8MP front camera instead.
In addition to the FullVision display, other much touted “premium” features that LG has implemented into its brand-new Q7 smartphones include being water and dust resistance according to the IP68 standard, AI-powered QLens functionality, and DTS:X 3D Surround Sound. The Q7+ also received another extra feature in the form of Hi-Fi Quad DAC that helped enhanced the phone’s headphones output.
Depending on respective markets, the Q7 phones will come with either 1.5GHz or 1.8GHz octa-core processor although the actual name for these chips were not revealed by LG in its official announcement. All three of them are also equipped with 3000mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Fast Charge technology.
The new 2018 LG Q7 smartphones will be released in Europe first next month before making their way to markets within America and Asia region. Since LG Mobile doesn’t usually release its smartphones into Malaysia in timely manner, we don’t expect any of these Q7 devices to be available in our market anytime soon.
