While everyone appears to be anticipating the launch of the V30, South Korea tech company LG dropped a bombshell this week by announcing two new mid-range handsets that greatly resemble its G6 flagship phone. Called the Q6 and Q6 Plus, the devices boast the company’s latest smartphone innovation, the Full Vision display.

On Tuesday, Korea Herald learned that LG Electronics has showcased two new smartphones that belong to the mid-range offerings of Samsung’s rival company. What’s interesting about the Q6 and Q6 Plus is they both come with high-end features, but they do not have the expensive price tags of flagship handsets.

Based on the nomenclature of the two, one would think that they differ based on screen sizes just like what Samsung did to its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones. However, LG did not give the two different names because of the disparity in their screens. In fact, both actually sport a 5.5-inch 2160 x 1080p Full Vision display — a slightly smaller variant of the 5.7-inch display found on the G6.

LG apparently named the two new handsets as Q6 and Q6 Plus because of the differences in their RAM and internal storage capacities. The Q6 houses 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory only, while the Q6 Plus comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal space. Other differences between the two devices were not disclosed.

In introducing the mid-range smartphones, LG focused on the Q6 and even went as far as describing it as a “semi-premium” device. “Users will be able to enjoy premium features at an attractive price point,” the company was quoted as saying.

By premium features, LG could be referring to the different aspects of the Q6 that are also present in the G6. For instance, the Q6 also has a wide-angle camera on the front that enables users to take wide selfies. The technology reportedly accommodates seven to eight people in one frame. It’s important to note however that the front camera only has 5 megapixels, while the rear camera has 13 megapixels.

The Q6 is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, which is smaller than the 3,300 mAh battery pack of the G6. Just like the latter though, the former is non-removable, and this could be an indication that the phone is going to be water resistant to a certain extent. Android Central reported that the mid-ranger will be run by a Snapdragon 435 processor and will sadly not sport a fingerprint sensor.

LG stated that it is still finalizing the pricing details for its two new phones. Industry watchers have already leaked though that the Q6 could arrive with a 500,000 won ($435) price tag. LG plans to start selling the Q6 next month in its home country, and it also intends to bring the handset to other markets in Asia and of the world, including North America, Europe and Africa. Again, there was no mention on the pricing and release details of the Q6 Plus. It’s safe to assume though that the smartphone will launch alongside the Q6 and would be more expensive than the latter.

Finally, LG also mentioned the Q6a as part of the Q6 family. Unfortunately, very little is known about this variant. The company only said that this version will have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. It did not indicate if the Q6a is still a mid-range offering or a low-end entry.
