First Phone to Offer Minimized-Bezel FullVision Display at Mid-Range Price Point


DUBAISeptember 11, 2017 — LG Electronics’ (LG) newest smartphone featuring the proprietary FullVision display is now available to consumers in the Gulf. The LG Q6, designed to meet the needs and expectations of discerning millennial customers, is part of the company’s latest line of powerful, mid-range smartphones boasting the essential features of LG premium phones at exceptional price points.


As the first in the Q series to be announced, the LG Q6 features some of the most desired innovations from LG’s premium G6 smartphone and packages them in a sleek, stunning body highlighted by its FullVision display with minimized bezels. The Q6 family consists of the Q6+ and Q6. The two variants cater to different user groups in terms of memory and storage: the Q6+ comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM, the base Q6 delivers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.


The Q6 is the first model in LG’s new Q series of smartphones and was designed for consumers who want a smartphone that offers the technology of LG’s flagship smartphones at an exceptional price that discerning millennials can appreciate. The Q6 shares DNA with the award-winning G6 smartphone, the first device to offer LG’s FullVision display. With FullVision, LG is able to offer a large screen in a phone that can be used comfortably with one hand, one of the biggest challenges facing smartphone design this decade.


The Q6’s standout feature is its 5.5-inch FHD+ Full Vision display. Not only does this unique display offer maximum screen space, it also allows for easy multitasking as the screen can be divided into two perfectly square windows, viewable either vertically or horizontally. Square Camera Mode enables the merger of two images into one and the creation of square grid collages – popular with social media fans.


Durability is another of this smartphone’s key features. Its metal frame is constructed of 7000 series alu-minum – a strong alloy commonly used in the aerospace and marine industries – with rounded corners to dissipate impact energy when dropped. The LG Q6 was designed with MIL-STD 810G in mind, which tests and measures devices for their reaction to temperature extremes, rain, humidity, sand and dust to determine their suitability for use by the United States military. The battery in the Q6 is also subjected to an extra harsh testing process, more demanding than international testing standards. And to disperse heat most effectively, a thermal pad cooling system is incorporated into the interior and key components are designed far from one another to minimize internal heating.


“We designed the Q series based on extensive research into what millennials want from their smartphones,” said Mr. Yong Geun Choi, president of LG Electronics Gulf. “The Q6 delivers the key features of our flagship smartphones at an exceptional price that will appeal to young consumers world over.”
