LG Q7 Will Come With MediaTek SoC, But Not The One You Want

LG is working on a successor for the midrange Q6 that launched last year but latest report says the LG Q7 won’t come with a Qualcomm processor.


The LG Q6 and its siblings (Q6+ and Q6α) are all powered by the Snapdragon 435 mobile platform. But for their successor, LG is reported to have switched to MediaTek. Sadly, it is not the Helio P60.

The info comes from leaker @rquandt. In a tweet posted earlier today, he said the LG Q7 LM-Q610 is powered by a MediaTek SoC and adds in a reply that it is not the Helio P60 but a less powerful and older chipset.

There are a number of mid-range MediaTek processors that are capable of offering impressive performance such as the Helio P23. There is also the more powerful Helio X23 but that might be a little far-fetched.

The LG Q7 is expected to launch soon along with another model called the LG Q7 Stylus (LM-Q710). They should arrive first in Asia before heading to other markets.
