South Korean smartphone manufacturer LG is currently working on the next flagship successor of the LG G7. But a new report suggests the OEM is also working on a device in its Q series called LG Q7. The smartphone has been recently spotted via LetsGoDigital in the database of Korean Intellectual Property after the company applied to trademark the name which hints the device launch is at the door. Very few information is available about specs and availability of the smartphone. So the best logical decision will be taking a second look at its predecessor LG Q6.
The LG Q6 was a mid-range segment smartphone, so it’s safe to assume the Q7 will be placed in the same. The Q6 was the first smartphone in the Q series and launched back last year in July featuring a 5-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels). It was powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset with two memory options: 2 GB RAM + 16 GB internal storage and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage.
LG launched another model in the Q series called the LG Q8 which featured an aspect ratio of 16:9 but had a higher resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. It also came with a more powerful chipset, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 coupled with 4 GB RAM.
So the LG Q7 is supposed to fit between these two from a market perspective which is likely to be priced between 350 Euros (Rs 28,000 approx) 600 Euros (Rs 48,147 approx). But it will be interesting to see whether the Q7 will be more like the Q6 budget segment or the Q8 which aimed high-end specs at a medium price. If the company follows the previous launch schedule, we could be seeing the LG Q7 this summer.
