LG has launched the Q6, its mid-range smartphone with a Full Vision display in India. The smartphone is exclusively available from Amazon India at Rs 14,999. The handset is the second device after the G6 to feature the new design language with thinner bezels and a display with taller aspect ratio.
LG had initially teased the launch for August 10 and hinted at the handset being priced at Rs 19,990 or lower. With Q6, LG is focusing entirely on the new design language that has minimal bezels surrounding the display and offers a more immersive experience than the traditional smartphone displays. The handset is built using 7000 series aluminium and comes with MIL-STD-810G certification. While LG announced three smartphones as part of its Q6 series in South Korea last month, the company is only bringing the mid-range Q6 here.

The display offers a taller aspect ratio of 18:9 and the smartphone offers a screen-to-body ratio of 78 percent. LG is also offering a one-time free replacement of the display within six months to enhance the experience.
