LG Q9 with Snapdragon 660 tipped to launch this year

The V40 may not be the only interesting device from LG that will launch before the end of the year. According to a leakster identified by the nickname MadSimar on Twitter, the Korean giant is working on another device which will be an upper-midrange phone. The tipster has shared some of the main specs of the handset and if we exclude flagships from the G series, this one seems definitely the most interesting LG phone of the year. However, at least from the info shared by the leakster, this device will be a step backward in terms of performance if we compare it with its predecessor LG Q8.

Indeed, LG Q9 is tipped to come with an octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset by Qualcomm running at a max frequency of 2.2 GHz, instead of the Snapdragon 820 found on the Q8. The chipset will be paired with 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage depending on the variant you will choose to buy. On the other hand, this device will be equipped with a larger battery which should attract a higher amount of potential buyers. The battery is expected to come with a capacity of 3550 mAh. MadSimar also said that the device will be launched with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

We do not know anything about the display size, but given the specs, we believe it will have at least a 5.5-inch screen. Further, we expect it to come with a dual camera setup just like its predecessor, with a secondary wide-angle sensor. Unfortunately, no info has been disclosed about the launch date and the possible pricing of this phone. The Q8 came with a small secondary display above the primary one and Hi-Fi DAC, so you can also expect the LG Q9 to come up with another innovative or unique feature.
