We have been since the beginning of April echoing the LG Q7 , a device that aroused many expectations at the time due to the possibility of being a kind of LG G7 or mini with a great quality / price ratio, but as the weeks passed, it was discovered as a low-end device. Now Geekbench informs us of a model called LM-Q710.FG in which everything points that we could be before the LG Q7 .
We must remember that a few days ago new information about the processor of the LG Q7, which would be signed by Mediatek and would be pretty basic. Well, the new specifications signed would fit a lot with the information that we were handling until now.
According to Geekbench, the LG Q7 would use a 5.5 inch screen, with a resolution of 1280 × 640 pixels , this resolution points to a screen ratio of 18: 9 , and contrary to what was thought at first, it does not seem that a notch is going to make an appearance. And it makes sense to repeat the diagonal and screen shape of the LG Q6 , since companies do not usually invest much in the design of their most affordable smartphones.
The processor of this smartphone is no longer a mystery, as we now know that it will be a decaffeinated version of the Mediatek Helio P10 whose technical name is MT6750V . We are facing a fairly humble processor but it is still an octacore, with all that implies. We talk about 8 Cortex A53 cores at a maximum frequency of 1.5 GHz and an ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU, so without being too remarkable, should not have problems to offer a smooth experience unless LG did a horrible job with the ROM of the device.
LG has not spared however in RAM, since we will have at our disposal a total of 4GB , something that is always welcome, but that leaves us wondering if it would not have been better to stay in 3 GB of RAM and include a somewhat more updated processor.
If the forecasts are true and we talk about the LG Q7, the truth is that we would be facing the first LG smartphone to use a SoC Mediatek in the Q series, given that the LG Q6 integrated a Snapdragon 435. This would indicate that something in LG is changing and that they want to stop relying so much on Qualcomm in favor of lower costs, although we do not know how this change can be received by the user community.
The rest of the features of the device are unknown to us, beyond the operating system chosen, which will be Android Oreo 8.1. We will expand the information about the features of the LG Q7 as soon as possible.
