LG Q60 – Advanced user experience with an attractive price tag

The Q60 has arrived to showcase premium features, advanced technologies, and stylish design, without breaking the bank.

With this new mid-range beauty, LG provides a large, high-quality display and AI-powered functionality to consumers who traditionally had to settle for less within the price range. This device features LG’s HD+ FullVision display at 6.26-inches.

It sports an impressive selection of quad cameras – one front and three rear, with AI CAM, Dual Front camera (Normal & Wide angle, Selfie Bokeh effects, Google Lens, Portrait Mode 2.0 (Out-focus), Multi-Frame Noise Reduction, Timer Helper, Flash Jump Cut with PDAF, and HDR. 

The front-facing camera is located in a water drop cut-out to maximise the FullVision display for comfortable viewing, playing, and communicating, whilst the slim bezels make it comfortable to hold and use single-handedly.

To ensure superior user experience, the LG Q60 features AI functions typically found in flagship smartphones. The AI CAM intuitively recognises objects and recommends the ideal shooting mode for the best results – this is great for users wanting to try their hand at creating quality content for Instagram and other social media platforms.

Google Assistant has become one of the most widely-used virtual assistants on smartphones today, and LG’s dedicated button gives users immediate access.

With DTS:X, 3D Surround Sound delivered through quality earphones, this device is great for high quality audio playback. This high-end audio technology convincingly simulates a 7.1-channel surround sound system to make any content more immersive when playing games, streaming movies, or listening to a Spotify playlist.

To maximise everyday usability of the Q series, LG engineers focused on improving the two basics features that smartphone customers covet the most: battery life and camera performance.
