LG’s new Q-series phones will start arriving in Australia soon with the LG Q6 starting the flood at just $399 bringing with it sleek design and beautiful Full Vision display.

Announced back in July, the Q-Series are ‘mid-range smartphones boasting the essential features of LG premium phones at exceptional price points’. The Q6 standout feature is the 5.5″ FHD+ (2160×1080) resolution Full Vision display which comes in the same 18:9 aspect ratio as the more premium G6. The slimmer design built on a full metal frame allows for better one-handed use.

While the screen and design is premium, the specs underneath are more in-line with the mid-range price point. LG has used the Snapdragon 435 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Full specs for the phone includes:

The new 18:9 aspect ratio screen also gets the Square Camera Mode which works with the 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras. The selfie camera comes with a 100 degree wide angle lens to allow you to fit everyone in those group shots. The other camera features launched with the G6 including SnapShot, Grid Shot, Guide Shot and Match Shot are also baked into the OS on the Q6.

LG hasn’t announced exactly when we’ll see the Q6 in-store in Australia but we’ve asked for some more information.

Update: LG has advised that the Q6 is on-sale now from JB Hi-Fi, followed by selected Officeworks stores and other channels soon after.

LG G6 is currently $460-470 on import, with better everything. Just saying ….

I agree with ya Fred. Plus, no microSD expansion so it looses me straight away. Especially with a phone that only has 32GB storage (Less with OS). Anyway, grey import of this would be $100 cheaper as well.

Fantastic design and screen at this price point let down by the low end SoC and the lack of fingerprint sensor. The back I believe is also plastic but the phone has a metal frame.

If they used something like the Snapdragon 625 and added a fingerprint scanner, it’d be the best $400 phone in Australia.

There are better performing phones at this price point, unless design is the number one thing you’re looking for.

Cheers
