“LG Q60 budget smartphone features the Helio P22 processor, and is available in a single, unique Moroccan Blue colour”
LG has launched its latest budget smartphone, the LG Q60, in India. The smartphone offers a few unique features, including MIL-STD 810G military-grade durability and DTS:X 3D surround audio technology. What makes this unique is that instead of playing the specifications game, LG is attempting to stand out in the crowded Indian budget smartphone space by offering durability, experiential features, and the unorthodox business decision of offering the phone in a single colour, Moroccan Blue.
In terms of the more mundane aspects, the LG Q60 is powered by the MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor with peak clock speed of 2GHz. It only has a single variant, which offers 3GB of memory and 64GB native storage that can be expanded by up to 2TB with a dedicated microSD slot. Up front, it features a 6.26-inch display with HD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. The waterdrop notch at the top of the phone houses a 13-megapixel front camera that also enables facial recognition, while the fingerprint sensor is placed at the back.
Also placed at the back is a horizontally aligned imaging module, which features a triple camera unit. The triple camera layout includes a 16-megapixel primary unit, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide angle unit, and a 2-megapixel depth sensing unit, with a single LED flash beside the camera housing. The device is powered by a 3,500mAh battery and runs Android 9.0 Pie. As of now, it is not clear if it employs some form of quick charging standard.
As for unique features, the LG Q60 features dual app accounts, 7.1 surround sound simulation with DTS:X, and a dedicated Google Assistant button to the left that can be used for quick voice searches and more. Priced at Rs 13,490 and available only in LG’s new ‘Moroccan Blue’, the LG Q60 will be available from October 1st, across both online and offline channels. There are no details as yet on whether LG will provide any limited duration launch offers with this smartphone.
