South Korean manufacturer LG today unveiled the LG Q7 trio ( LG Q7, Q7 Plus, Q7 Alpha ) smartphones which is sure to appeal to customers that can’t afford a G or V series phone. The new smartphones are an upgrade to the LG Q6 equipped with serious audio credentials.
The LG Q7 comes with Hi-Fi audio with DTS:X 3D Surround sound that can emulate 3D surround sound over headphones. The technology can simulate the 3D environment of any audio to produce 12 channels of binaural surround sound creating an immersive cinematic audio experience. The LG G7 Plus variant also features Quad DAC’s like in LG G7 or V30, but there is no 3.5 mm port in the device.
The LG G7 trio sport metallic bodies which are MIL-STD-810G-complaint and also IP68 rated water protected. The front houses a 5.5-inch Full Vision 2.5D LCD display with a resolution of FHD+ (2,160 x 1080 pixels) and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, they are powered by an unknown Octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8 GHz or 1.5 GHz. The LG Q7 and the Q7 Alpha have a 3 GB RAM + 32 GB internal space configuration while the Q7 Plus comes with 4 GB RAM + 64 GB internal space. All three models have expandable memory options through a microSD card. There is a Smart rear fingerprint sensor which doubles as a shutter button, click screenshots and drag notification bar.
In the optical configuration, the Q7 Plus sports a 16 MP rear camera while the Q7 and Q7 Alpha have a 13 MP one. In the front, all the smartphones have 5 MP super wide angle (100 degrees) selfie camera. But you may also get an 8 MP front camera depending on the region. The latest feature in the Q7 is the Portrait effect that allows users to take Bokeh effect photographs with blurred background. There is also PDAF, which is touted to be 23% faster than traditional auto-focus. The Q7 also gets the QLens which uses AI tech for recognizing objects in the image and efficiently search online.
They are all backed by a 3,000 mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Fast Charge which the company claims charges from 0% to 100% in just 30 minutes thanks to a USB Type-C port. The company is yet to announce the pricing of smartphones.
