LG has partially confirmed that it will be launching the smaller variant of the LG G6 in Poland dubbed LG Q6 on July 11, which is just a couple of days away from now. There are a few details leaked about the device until now, however, an older Geekbench 4.0.4 benchmark listing revealed other specifications of the device.
Brace yourself; the LG Q6 does not feature flagship specifications. Instead, the phone caters to the entry-level segment. LG might be calling this device as LG G6 Mini because they are using the same design of the LG G6. Yes, the LG Q6 will have an 18:5:9 display, same as the LG G6. The screen size would be 5.4-inches, meaning the device’s form factor will be equal to the one of a 4.7-inch device, thanks to the extremely thin bezel design.
Recently, a report said that the device would have a model number- LG-M700. And a Geekbench listing with the same model number from March has now come into existence, which claims that the device will be powered by the 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, mated with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
Thanks to the listing, we got to know that the device will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. The LG Q6 aka LG G6 Mini achieved a single core score of 622 and a multi-core score of 1777, which are decent for an entry-level smartphone.
Furthermore, the smartphone is said to arrive with a single 13MP rear camera, along with a Full HD display. The device will also feature a smaller battery, compared to the LG G6, and of course, a smaller price tag as well.
LG’s decision to go with a dated entry-level chipset could be backfired because several fans have been asking for a powerful compact phone from LG. Also, do make a note that the smartphone was benchmarked more than three months ago and there might be some changes in the final version of the phone.
