LG has launched a new mid-range smartphone LG Q51 in its homeland South Korea. It is the first LG Q-series smartphone of 2020 which has proved to be quite successful. The new phone offers triple rear cameras and a big enough battery to keep the lights on. It also comes with the usual MIL-STD-810G certification for rugged that we have seen in almost all LG phones in recent years.
The LG Q51 sports a 6.5-inch HD+ FullVision IPS LCD display with a V-shaped notch. Under the hood, it has the MediaTek Helio P22 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. The onboard storage is 32GB but with microSD card support for storage expansion. It is the only configuration variant that has been released.
The triple camera setup includes a 13-megapixel primary sensor, a 5-megapixel wide-angle sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor along with an LED flash. The front camera is a 13-megapixel sensor housed within the notch. The whole package is powered by a 4,000mAh battery but there does not seem to be fast charging support.
Other noteworthy features include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, DTS:X 7.1 surround sound, NFC support, and USB Type-C support. The LG Q51 has been priced at 317,000 Won i.e. about $261 with sales starting February 26th. It is currently available only for the South Korean market but there are no words on the global availability yet.
