LG expected to launch cheaper, smaller G6 variant dubbed Q6

By

Wish you could get a smartphone with an ultra-wide aspect ratio, but one that’s smaller than the LG G6 and Samsung S8?

Having a phone with an 18:9 aspect ratio, like the LG G6 and the 18.5:9 aspect ratio in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, has already delivered devices with large, taller screens but in smaller bodies, due to thinner left and right bezels.

The G6 has a 5.7-inch screen, the S8 a 5.8-incher and the S8+ a 6.2-inch screen.

The reported Q6, AKA the G6 mini, is reported to feature a 5.4-inch display, which will match the G8 and G8+ aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

The upcoming iPhone 8 is supposed to feature a similarly taller screen with ever slimmer bezels.

So, what are the other differences?

Well, IBTimes quotes prolific leaker, Evan Blass, as stating the phone will have that 5.4-inch display, but Blass also points to a TechnoBuffalo report that talks of 3GB ram, and a single camera, rather than the dual camera lenses of the G5 and G6 models.  

The “screen to body” ratio is expected to be “less than 80%” and the model number is said to be M700.

There is speculation that a Qualcomm 600-series upper mid-range processor would be used, rather than the flagship 800-series processor range.

So, the age of even wider-screen phones that still fit ever more easily in the palm of of your hand appear to be at hand, at more affordable pricing, and for some, that will be very handy.
