LG has announced a new mid-range smartphone named LG Q70 as it prepares for the IFA 2019 event to be held next month in Berlin. This is the first LG smartphone to ditch notches and come with a punch-hole display. Many of the OEMs have already released phones with this design and now, LG has joined the club as well.
The LG Q70 sports a 6.4-inch Full HD+ (2310 x 1080 pixels) FullVision display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. There is 64GB of internal storage with microSD card support up to 2TB. It is the only configuration model that has been announced for the smartphone.
The triple rear camera setup includes a 32-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with 120-degree field of view, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. There is a 16-megapixel front camera that is housed within the punch-hole made on the display. It also has 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC and DTS:X 3D technology for delivering immersive sound output experience.
The whole package is powered by a 4,000mAh battery with no words on fast charging support. It will be running Android 9 Pie out of the box and also has a fingerprint scanner. Other features include IP68 water and dust resistance, MIL-STD-810G durability certification, dedicated Google Assistant button, and LG Pay support. The LG Q70 has been priced at 548,900 Won which is about $450 with only Mirror Black color variant.
LG's lineup of smartphones for IFA 2019 further includes LG K50S and LG K40S mid-range devices. It will also release a new Android flagship with dual displays which is likely to be called the LG V60 ThinQ.
