LG announced this week its newest midrange series of smartphones, the Q7 lineup. The Q7 family includes the Q7, Q7α and Q7+.
The Q7 and Q7α feature 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, while the Q7+ includes 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
All three of the devices sport a 5.5-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution.
The Q7 also features what the company calls ‘QLens’ that works similar to the LG G7 ThinQ’s camera AI. QLens includes an image search algorithm and online shopping functionality.
Rear camera-wise, the Q7 and Q7α sport a 13-megapixel camera, while the Q7+ has a 16-megapixel shooter. On the front, the Q7+ and the Q7 include a 8-megapixel sensor and the Q7α features a 5-megapixel shooter.
The handsets also offer DTS:X, an audio codec that delivers virtual 3D surround sound and up to 7.1 channel audio through headphones. Meanwhile, the Q7+ also offers a Hi-Fi Quad DAC for richer sound.
The Q7 series are also IP68 water and dust certified and are certified to be MIL-STD 810G compliant, which means the phone is quite durable and has a higher than normal survivability.
The fingerprint scanner on the devices also double as a camera shutter button, it can be used to take screenshots and pull down the notification bar.
We’ve reached out to LG to find out which of these devices the company plans to bring to Canada. It’s likely, however, that we’ll only see the Q7.
