LG rolls out a trio of new Q7 models featuring high-end audio
LG has launched its new Q7 range of smartphones, including the standard Q7, Q7a and the Q7+. The new range is targeted at the mid-range segment of the market, with each model in featuring DTS:X virtual 3D surround sound with up to 7.1 channel audio through headphones.
Each Q7 model comes with a new 5.5-inch FHD+ 18:9 FullVision display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels for a pixel density of 442ppi. Other improvements over the Q6 include a new rear fingerprint sensor, upgraded water and dust resistance, a switch to a USB Type-C connector and fast charging support. Also, depending on model, users can enjoy new faster octa-core processors clocked at either 1.5GHz or 1.8GHz. The Q7 and Q7a will come with 3GB of RAM and 34GB of onboard storage.
All of the Q7 models also feature LG’s new QLens AI-driven camera software, if not quite the same level of optics. Nonetheless, the Q7 and Q7a come with a 13MP rear camera with PDAF sensor, the first time these models have had phase detection capabilities. The Q7+, which is the top line model, will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage as well as a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, giving it similar audio performance to the LG G6 and LG V30. It also gets a better camera rated at 16MP with PDAF tech.
