LG Q9 Review, Specs, Features and Price

by Obodoakor Moses

The LG Q9 is the first smartphone released in 2019 by LG. The smartphone was released in Korea and comes with some nice premium features. One of those features is IP68 water resistance. It comes with a lot of up & downs that will make you ask “why did LG bother releasing the smartphone in the first place?”. Stay with me as I review the LG Q9 smartphone.


LG Q9 Design

The design of the LG Q9 is no different from the LG G7 Fit. It weighs 159 grams and measures 7.9 mm in thickness. At the back of the LG Q9 is a single camera, LED flash and a rounded fingerprint scanner, all in a vertical direction at the top centre. The front display features a wide top notch, which packs the selfie camera, earpiece and other sensors.

The LG Q9 passed the military MIL-STD-810G toughness standard and has an IP68 water/dust resistance. You can get this device in three different colour options; Carmine Red, New Aurora Black and New Moroccan Blue.

For some weird reasons we just can’t figure out, the 2016’s Snapdragon 821 powers the LG Q9. That’s a three years back chipset with the only 4-core processor. While most 2019 smartphone has a chipset with an 8-core processor. The Snapdragon 821 chip features Adreno 530 GPU. It comes with a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, which is decent enough.
