LG’s Q7 brings a big screen, security to $549

Curious about LG’s G7 but don’t have the cash to spend big? Q might mark the spot.

The era of being forced to spend big on a new phone is practically over, and now that the mid-range is proving to be a big area for mobiles, everyone is getting in.

While it’s not unusual to see the likes of Huawei and Oppo make themselves known here, other smartphone suppliers are also doing their part to deliver, with LG planting itself in the mid-range, as well. With the G and V series sitting in the high-end part of LG’s world, it’s time to take a look at the Q-series, what forms the middle of the road for LG.

Last year saw the release of the Q6 playing mid-range to LG’s G6, and this year it’s the Q7, understandably playing mid-range to the G7.


As such, the Q7 sports a 5.5 inch full view display, sporting a resolution of 2160×1080 and taking up most of the phone, even skipping the notch for this handset.

There’s also IP68 water and dust resistance, 32GB storage, 3GB RAM, and an eight-core processor, with a fingerprint sensor able to unlock the phone, as well as a face recognition.

While LG’s Q7 won’t exactly threaten LG’s G7, the focus here is on enough technology for the $549 outright price, and features two cameras with support for a portrait-selfie mode, as well, the sort of thing that normally appears in high-end phones.

“We’re very excited to continue the trend of bringing high-end features to mid-range smartphones,” said Bruce Leigh, Marketing Manager for Mobile at LG Australia.

While the mid-range price could bring people over, we’re vaguely curious how LG’s choice of processor will perform, with MediaTek’s MT6750 on-board. That’s not necessarily the fastest of chips out there, but it might be enough to deliver more than a day of life out of the 3000mAh battery.

You can find it in stores in Australia now, though, providing more phone selection for folks intending not to spend too much.
