LG Q7 to be Powered by a MediaTek Chipset

South Korean manufacturer LG is working on a device in the Q series called LG Q7. It will be a direct successor to last year’s LG G6. The smartphone’s existence was confirmed when the company applied for a trademark in Korean Intellectual Property. According to a new report, the LG Q7 will not be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon series of processors.

The predecessor of the Q7 (Q6+ and the Q6 ) are all powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset. But with this new smartphone, LG decided to replace it with a MediaTek chipset, which is not the Helio P60 SoC.

The report comes from a trustable leaker, Roland Quandt, who tweeted on his Twitter handle @rqandt that a MediaTek chipset will power the LG Q7 LM-Q610. He replies that the chipset is not the Helio P60 as expected but less powerful and older. Now, this statement makes a lot of variables. Several mid-range MediaTek chipsets, like the Helio P23 or even the Helio X23, could power the smartphone and offer impressive performance.

Previously, it was reported that the LG Q7 would include a display called MLCD+, which consumes 35% less power than a regular display and is significantly brighter. It will be launched along with another variant called the LG Q7 Stylus (LM-Q710), which will include a Stylus, as evident from the name. The smartphone will compete with the upcoming Galaxy Note 9, rumored to come with an S-Pen.
