In July last year, LG introduced for the first time its Q lineup of mid-range smartphones beginning with the LG Q6, which is equipped with some rather premium features borrowed from the LG G6. The South Korean electronics company seems to be carrying on with that strategy this year by launching the LG Q7 series with a number of flagship features.

The LG Q7 retains the 5.5-inch FHD+ FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio from the G6, and packs other high-end features such as Hi-Fi quality audio and a fingerprint sensor mounted on the back.
