It has been a couple of months since we first heard about the upcoming LG Q9. Since then, the smartphone keeps appearing in different leaks and reports including renders. But now, it has been spotted on the South Korean certification authority National Radio Research Agency (NRRA) website hinting at an imminent release.
The NRRA listing does not reveal much except that the LG Q9 bears the model number LM-Q925K. This is the only meaningful information that can be collected from the listing. As mentioned in the beginning, it does confirm that LG is quite close to announcing the smartphone, at least in its home market of South Korea.
If we go by previous reports and speculations, the LG Q9 is nothing but just a rebranded version of the LG G7 Fit for the South Korean market. It is said to come with exactly the same design, specifications, and features except for the name change. It means there will be a 6.1-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) IPS LCD display with a notch. Under the hood, it will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB internal storage options.
There will be a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. The whole package will be powered by a 3000mAh battery with support for fast charging. On the software front, it is expected to ship with Android 8.1 Oreo.
