It builds on the previous models’ foundation, with even more high-end features like portrait mode, DTS:X Virtual Surround Sound, water and dust resistance and a fingerprint sensor on the back for added security as well as upgraded 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM which is also expandable.
The LG Q7 also features a 2.5D Arc Glass design with rounded-edges that makes the device comfortable to hold and operate with one hand.
