LG seems to be launching smaller phones of its current flagships. After anouncing the LG Q6, which is basically a budget version of their LG G6, the Korean smartphone maker is now introducing the LG Q8, which is a “mini flagship” version of its LG V20 phablet.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 isn’t the only phone getting early previews through leaked cases. Its home ground rival LG is also getting the same treatment through an online retailer that has started selling cases for the yet to be launched LG V30.
Before LG introduces its new V30 flagship smartphone, the previous LG V20 is finally available in Malaysia with official warranty. Despite being last year’s flagship, the LG V20 is still quite a compelling device under RM2,000 as it gets a dual-camera system with a wide-angle option along with a secondary display on top.
As we are going deeper into the second half of the year, LG Mobile will be launching a new phablet that will take on the upcoming flagships that will be announced in a couple of months time. This would include the usual big contenders like the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and the iPhone 7s/iPhone 8.
Invites for LG’s upcoming launch have gone out and it is clear that this would be their upcoming LG V30 flagship smartphone.
LG has just announced a new mid-range smartphone which is basically the “mini” version of its LG G6 flagship. Instead of giving it a “mini” moniker, the South Korean maker has introduced a new Q series lineup that also comes with a Full Vision 18:9 display aspect ratio. This offers a larger screen in a smaller footprint.
While Xiaomi is launching a bigger version of its current flagship, LG Mobile is taking an opposite approach with their upcoming device. The Korean smartphone maker is expected to launch a mini version of the LG G6 that comes with a Full Vision display.
The LG G6 is a huge upgrade over its underwhelming LG G5. However, with more flagships hitting the shelves like the Galaxy S8, HTC U11 and Xperia XZ Premium, LG knows it needs to do something to freshen up its top-tier smartphone offering. And here it is, the LG G6+.
The LG G6 is probably one of the most underrated flagship smartphones for 2017. It has a 5.7″ Quad HD+ display with HDR10 that feels like a smaller phone thanks to its 18:9 display aspect ratio. If you’ve been eyeing for a Samsung Galaxy S8 alternative without a curved screen, the LG G6 is now more affordable in Malaysia.
News and rumours have spread like wildfire that LG will be switching to OLED displays for their next two big flagship smartphones, ditching the LCD panels that currently occupy the G6. Although it’s an interesting move by the company, the thing I want to know is, would it matter to you?
UPDATE: The LG G6 officially goes on sale in Malaysia on the first week of May.
The LG G6 is one of the most interesting flagships to be announced at MWC 2017. It has a large 5.7″ QuadHD+ display in a 18:9 aspect ratio which gives it a small phone feel despite having a larger phablet sized display.
If you’ve been eyeing for this device, it looks like you won’t need to wait too long before it hits the Malaysian market officially.
