LG Q6+, Q6 and Q6α with 5.5-inch 18:9 FHD+ display, metal frame, Android 7.1 announced

LG Q6 Plus

LG has officially announced the Q6 smartphone in the new Q series, as expected, but it has also announced the Q6α and Q6+ with different RAM and storage configurations. All these have a 5.5-inch FHD+ FullVision display with 18:9 aspect ratio and minimal bezels, but this is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 435 instead of Snapdragon 821 on the G6 and also doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor.


It has a single 13-megapixel rear camera along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with 100-degree wide-angle lens. It has the same camera feature present in the G6 such as Square Camera Mode, GIF mode, Food mode and more. It has a ultra-strong 7000 series aluminum frame and has a unibody design, but the back seems to be made of plastic. The image also shows two slots, so it could have dedicated dual SIM slots.
