Korean electronics giant LG launched the G7 ThinQ smartphone earlier this month and to follow up with its flagship smartphone, the company is now geared up to launch its mid-range sibling. The Q7 which will succeed last year’s LG Q6 has popped up on benchmarking site GeekBench with a glimpse of what all’s inside the device.
Labeled as LM-Q710.FG, the LG device will be powered by a MediaTek MT6755 chipset which we’ve come to know as the Helio P10 and will be coupled with 4GB RAM. The Q7 will be the third device to come under LG Q-series, following the Q6 and Q8 which were respectively the budget remodifications of the G7 and V30.
With a timeframe of G7 ThinQ’s global release set for early June, LG will be looking to launch its mid-range variant within the near future so as to provide a budget solution to its users who wouldn’t buy the much high-end flagship. Coming back to the device, the alleged Q7 is powered by a 1.52GHz Helio P10 processor and scores a commanding 630 points on the single-core test and 2,322 points on the multi-core test which analyzed the overall output of the octa-core chipset.
Moving on, the LG Q7 will also come with a stable build of Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box on a taller four factor. LG’s also supposed to be working on a larger screen Q-series device that makes use of a stylus meaning the successor to the Q8 device might be on the cards. Reports suggest that the device will likely be named with the Q Note branding.
The Q6 was launched in July last year and with the delay in the global release of the flagship G7 ThinQ, we can expect an announcement about the Q7 anywhere after July. With nothing confirmed officially, the LG Q7 is expected to touch the $300 (approx. Rs 20,200) mark upon its release.
