LG Q7: features, price, technical sheet

26 mayo, 2021

The LG mid-range it is also renewed. A couple of weeks after the LG G7 ThinQ, the new LG Q7 officially arrives, a device with more humble features than the flagship but with a very careful design that reflects similar lines. We are before the successor of the previous LG Q6, an Android mobile that last year already put the screen accent and layout.

The LG Q7 comes with an 18: 9 screen and unlike its older brother, we have no notch on the screen. We are going to review what this new mid-range offers us, whose appearance has little to envy to higher-level devices and where some quite interesting features for the mid-range are introduced.

18: 9 screen and IP68 water resistance

The newest member of the LG Q family comes with a 5.5-inch FullVision display with an 18: 9 aspect ratio and resolution 2160 x 1080 pixels. It is a panel similar to last year’s model, the frames are still just as small and this is a mobile that stands out for its minimalist design and light body. This year we also have IP68 water and dust resistance, MIL-STD 810G certification, metal body and 2.5D glass coated.

Lg Q7 01

The LG Q7 comes in three different models, depending on its internal characteristics. The design is the same, but both the power and some of the additions are only in some. The most basic is the LG Q7, where we have a 1.5GHz Octa-core processor accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage expandable via microSD. The next model is the LG Q7α, with the same memory and RAM configuration but a more advanced processor, which due to its characteristics would be the Snapdragon 450. Finally we have the LG Q7 +, where here we already go to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

For the battery we have 3,300 mAh where it also introduces compatibility with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, to be able to charge 50% in about 30 minutes.

At the back of the LG Q7 we find a fingerprint reader that has a ‘Smart Rear Key’. Basically, in addition to allowing us to unlock the device, we can also press it to activate the camera, take screenshots and open the notification bar.

Portrait mode and high fidelity sound

The LG Q7 introduces a 13 megapixel rear camera in the basic model and a camera 16 megapixels for the LG Q7 +. All versions have phase detection autofocus. Meanwhile, the front camera will vary depending on the market between an eight megapixel sensor or a five megapixel sensor with a 100 degree wide angle. The portrait mode will also be present and we can take out of focus selfies.

Artificial intelligence also makes an appearance to activate the QLens image recognition and find similar objects.

Lg Q7 02

Android 8.0 Oreo It is the software version that LG introduces in its mid-range. But we want to finish with the sound section, a point where LG is investing large resources. The LG Q7 offers DTS: X for 3D surround sound through the headphone port. We also have in the LQ Q7 + model a HiFi QuadDAC for distortion-free sound. Some additions that we are eager to try but taking into account the good results of its latest high-end sound, this LG Q7 can be a good option for those who value sound but are not looking for a much more powerful mobile either.

Versions and price of the LG Q7

The LG Q7 2018 and its different versions will be available in Europe during the month of June. It will also reach various markets in America and Asia. It will be offered in black, blue and purple at a price not yet specified but within the mid-range.

The previous model can be obtained for 179 euros but the jump this year has been significant, so we do not doubt that there will be a notable price increase, especially in the LG Q7 + model.
