LG has launched a new smartphone named LG Q9 One in its homeland South Korea. It is the second Android One offering from the company as it released LG G7 One last year. It is basically an enhanced variant of the LG Q9 which was unveiled earlier this year. Both devices share many of the specifications and features but differ in a few areas.
The LG Q9 One sports a 6.1-inch Quad HD+ (3120 x 1440 pixels) FullVision IPS display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. It offers 64GB internal storage with support for microSD cards up to 2TB. It has a 16-megapixel rear camera with a 71-degree wide-angle sensor, f/1.6 aperture, and LED flash. On the front, it has an 8-megapixel camera with an 80-degree wide-angle sensor.
The whole package is powered by a 3000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging. It will be running the latest Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. But as it is an Android One offering, there will be stock Android experience and no custom LG skin. Other features include IP68 certification for water and dust resistance as well as MIL-STD-810G certification for durability. It further features 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Boombox speakers, USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and 4G VoLTE support.
The LG Q9 One has been priced at KRW 599,500 which is about $533. It has been released in only one color option called Moroccan Blue. It will go on sales starting February 15th exclusively via LG U+.
