One of the most compelling features of the LG G6 is its display. Sporting a uniquce 18:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 1440x2880, the G6 makes it easy to get the big-screen experience without the unwieldy form factor. The only other smartphones that have such displays are the S8 and S8 Plus.
Thankfully, LG is bringing its wonderful FullVision displays to lower-end devices, the first three of which are being introduced today. The LG Q6, LG Q6 Plus (Q6+) and LG Q6a.
The standout features on the Q6 series devices are their displays, Each one has a 5.5-inch 18:9 FullHD+ display with a resolution of 2160x1080 and a pixel density of 442ppi.
Just like the G6, these phones also have curved edges on the screens which are further accentuated by the curves on the chassis. All phones in the Q6 series are made out of metallic frames made of 7000 series aluminium.
Surrounding these 18:9 displays are minimal bezels which will certainly help with one-handed use.
Under the hood, the entire Q6 lineup features Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 435 Mobile Platform. The Q6 Plus comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, while the standard Q6 comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and the Q6a sports a 2/16 GB setup. They all come with non-removable 3,000 mAh batteries, too.
In terms of optics, all three devices share the same 13 MP standard angle rear-facing sensor, along with a 5 MP 100-degree wide-angle front camera. The selfie shooters on these devices also come with LG’s Face Recognition feature.
None of the devices come with fingerprint sensors. Finally, all three devices are running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, along with LG’s UX 6.0 on top. Q6 owners can take advantage of features like Square Camera Mode, which debuted on the G6.
