LG Q9 has been unveiled in South Korea as a new model for young users. The new smartphone is essentially the South Korean variant of the LG G7 Fit that was unveiled at IFA 2018 last August. Key specifications of the LG Q9 include a 19.5:9 display panel, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, 16-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera, and a 3,000mAh battery. The smartphone also comes with LG's proprietary Quad DAC technology and Boombox speaker. The Q9 also has FM radio support to utilise the onboard audio technologies to entertain users while on-the-go. Furthermore, there is an IP68-certified build that is based on MIL-STD 810G military standard.
The LG Q9 price in South Korea has been set at KRW 499,400 (roughly Rs. 31,100). The smartphone will go on sale in South Korea starting July 11 in three colour options, namely Carmine Red, Aurora Black, and Moroccan Blue.
The LG Q9 runs Android 8.1 Oreo and features a 6.1-inch QHD+ (3120x1440 pixels) FullVision display along with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 564ppi of pixel density. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC that is powering the smartphone along with 4GB of RAM.
Unlike many other millennial-focused smartphones, the LG Q9 doesn't have a dual rear camera setup. Instead, there is a single, 16-megapixel sensor at the back along with an LED flash. The smartphone also has an 8-megapixel sensor at the front for selfies and video chat.
The LG Q9 has 64GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB). Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. There is also NFC support that works with a built-in feature to enable payments via POS (Point-of-Sale) machines. The smartphone also has a fingerprint sensor at the back. Besides, it packs a 3,000mAh battery and measures 153.2x71.9x7.9mm.
