LG has officially introduced the LG Q6 – a ‘mini’ take on the flagship LG G6 that arrives in three different flavours, each with a FullVision display.
With the official release of the LG Q6, LG is, perhaps, the first major Android OEM to commit to releasing a ‘mini’ variant of its flagship smartphone, giving us a whiff of nostalgia for the days of the LG G4 Beat and the LG G3 Beat.
The LG Q6 arrives in three different flavours, each carrying the FullVision display that the flagship G6 is renowned for. Each handset carries a 1080X2160 resolution and Snapdragon 435 SoC, and provides a 13-megapixel (single) rear-facing camera with a wide-angle selfie lens that can capture images at 100-degrees.

Interestingly, however, the amount of RAM on each offering differs; the LG Q6+ provides 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, the standard LG Q6 gives 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, and the LG Q6? weighs in with a featherweight 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage.
Beyond that, users will be able to expect Android 7.1.1 Nougat across the board, as well as a 3,000mAh battery – the subject of a jab at Samsung, as LG commented that its handsets undergo ‘numerous safety checks’.
The Q6 trinity is expected to go on sale in Asia, and will later debut in Europe, Latin America, and North America – though no word has been given on whether we’ll be able to expect the handset here in South Africa, nor for exactly how much each model in the series will retail for.
