Mid-range LG Q9 spotted online, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor in tow
Although LG's mobile arm continues to bleed money, the multinational tech giant headquartered in South Korea is apparently ready to launch another mid-ranger that doesn't seem to bring anything new on the market. The name of this handset is LG Q9 and an image that appears to be the first press render has recently surfaced online thanks to MySmartPrice News.
The aforementioned image shows a device with a lot of space around the screen - forehead, (quite slim) bezels, and even a wide chin, although the LG Q9 has a notched display. The list of specs and features is expected to include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4 GB of memory, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage space, NFC and the usual connectivity features for a mid-range Android device, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, as well as a 3,550 mAh battery. The 6.1-inch display will probably have a 2:1 ratio and 2,160 x 1,080 pixels.
For now, there is no launch date and pricing information, but if LG releases the Q9 before the end of the year, it will probably arrive with Android 8.1 Oreo onboard. No matter when it arrives, we can't imagine the LG Q9 having any chance in the mid-range sector where brands like Huawei and Xiaomi offer a lot for around US$200. However, it would be nice for it to hit the market with Android Pie out of the box.
