LG Q9 is the next Q-series smartphone from LG. The exact launch date of the Q9 has not been confirmed yet. Fresh set of LG Q9 renders have surfaced today to give a close at its design. Some of the key specs of the phone have also leaked through its Google Play Console listing.
The mere look at the LG Q9 phone reveals that it is identical to the LG G7 Fit smartphone that was announced at IFA 2018 tech expo in September. The handset seems to be featuring a metallic rear and it features a notched screen on the front. The bottom edge of the phone is equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack, a USB-C port and an external speaker.
LG has never released a phone powered by Snapdragon 660 before. Previous reports had claimed that it could be the first LG phone with Snapdragon 660 chipset onboard. However, the Google Play Console listing of the smartphone reveals that it is fueled by Snapdragon 821. The LG G7 Fit is driven by the same chipset. Hence, it appears that the LG Q9 could be rebranded version of the LG G7 Fit smartphone.
The LQ Q8 that was launched last year was powered by Snapdragon 820. Hence, it appears that the Q9 may indeed feature Snapdragon 821. The Google Play Console listing of the LG Q9 also reveals that it features 4 GB of RAM and its display supports a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels along with a screen density of 420 dpi. The handset is preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo OS.
A recent report had revealed some of the other key specs of the LG Q9 smartphone. It revealed that the phone is equipped with a display of 6.1 inches. The report did not reveal the name of the processor that powers the Q9, but it confirmed that it includes 4 GB of RAM. The other features available on the LG Q9 are fingerprint scanner and NFC. Most of these specs match with the LG G7 Fit.
If the LG Q9 is really rebranded edition of the G7 Fit, it may arrive with 16-megapixel rear facing camera and a frontal shooter of 8-megapixel. The handset is packed with a 3,000mAh battery. It may also feature MIL-STD-810G grade chassis with IP68 rating. Last year, the Q8 (2018) was launched in August. Hence, it appears that the arrival of its successor could be around the corner.
