After announcing the mid-range LG Q7 series in May, LG Australia has today announced that the LG Q7 is now on-sale in Australia through JB Hi-Fi for $549.

The LG Q7 will be available in a stylish Aurora Black that will show off the thin, sleek design of the body that is both water and dust resistant with a 5.5-inch FHD+ FullVision 18:9 aspect ratio display on the front and 16MP camera and fingerprint sensor on the rear. The handset includes a number of high-end features normally reserved for higher end devices like the inclusion of DTS:X sound offering immersive surround sound 7.1 channel audio through headphones.

The camera experience on the phone includes a portrait mode allowing for selfies with beautifully blurred backgrounds for a Bokeh effect. The rear camera utilises Phased Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) which is faster than traditional auto-focus for a faster, crisper shot every time.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

LG lost me at the Mediatek SOC… Why oh why would LG do that at a phone that’s at this range… I mean some Snapdragon 600 series even 400 series is going to be better. It’s just cheapskating IMHO.

Does the Q7 have NFC?

How can basic boring bland black honestly be called or regarded as ‘stylish’?
