Last week we came across an update that LG has started taking pre-orders for LG Q6+ smartphone in the offline market. The handset was said to be priced at Rs. 17,990 and is the second handset in the Q series from South Korean manufacturer for the Indian market.
Based on the information we have at GIZBOT today, LG will officially launch the Q6+ in the offline market on September 13, i.e. just a day after Samsung is announcing their flagship phablet- Galaxy Note 8 in India and Apple is unveiling iPhone 8 in San Francisco.
Technically LG should have launched the bigger and mightier LG V30 smartphone which would have given a tough competition to Samsung's most advanced phablet. Nevertheless, the smartphone will soon make it to the Indian market somewhere around the mid of October, 2017.

Coming onto LG Q6+, the smartphone will only sell in the retail stores across the country for now. LG Q6+ sports a 5.5-inch FullVision HD display that bears an aspect ratio of 18:9, derived from the flagship LG G6.
Like LG Q6, LG Q6+ also runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box and features a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front camera with a wide angle lens. LG Q6+ is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 435 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. The LG Q6+ comes with 64GB of built-in storage, which is expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB).
The LG Q6+ is backed by a 3,000mAh battery unit and connectivity options offered include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, NFC, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
As far as design is concerned, LG Q6+ is also quite compact and durable, just like the LG Q6. The smartphone's metal body is solidified by the lightweight 'H Beam' frame which is made from the strong 7000 series aluminum. It is one of the highest strength aluminum alloys available and used extensively in industries such as aerospace. LG Q6+ will also prove to be a great mobile device for one-hand use.
