LG's first flagship phone for 2017, the LG G6 is a massive hit, and the major prowess of the smartphone is the 5.7-inch wide display called 'Full Vision,' display. Over a two months ago, a report claimed that LG is working on a stripped down version of the LG G6 with a smaller screen, less powerful hardware, and will carry a less price.
Back then, only the images of the device were leaked, which allegedly confirmed the presence of 5.4-inch display. And yes, the display will feature a screen-to-body ratio of just under 80 percent and an aspect ratio of 18:5:9. And now, Evan Blass, the popular tipster has leaked some details about the upcoming smartphone.
The so-called LG G6 Mini will be released as LG Q6 along with massively downgraded specifications. The LG Q6 will carry a 5.4-inch 18:5:9 display, as said earlier. Blass also claims that the same smartphone received Wi-Fi Certification with a model number as LG M700, a few days ago, which means the launch is imminent.
He also says that the phone will have a single 13MP camera at the back, which is a major letdown and a 3GB RAM unit can be seen inside. However, the chipset and pricing of the phone are not leaked by the tipster.
Nevertheless, looking at the suggested specifications, the LG Q6 may not feature the Snapdragon 821 chipset. Instead, it will come with a slightly less powerful one. Also, the April report said that the price of the phone would be a lot less compared to the flagship LG G6, which is retailing for around Rs. 40,000 in India for $699 in the American countries.
Besides the LG Q6, the South Korean company also announced the bumped up versions of LG G6 in its homeland Korea recently. LG recently announced two new variants of LG G6- the LG G6+ and LG G6 (32GB). As the name itself suggests, the Plus option includes a bigger storage of 128GB, while the other variant of G6 has 32GB. The original LG G6 was launched with 64GB onboard storage. The G6+ also has wireless charging feature, which is a much-needed one for the smartphones.
