LG Q6 misses out on the fingerprint sensor, but offers an edge-to-edge display for Rs 14,990

The LG Q6 is the first mid-range smartphone featuring a display with higher screen-to-body.

Fingerprint sensors were first introduced in high-end, flagship smartphones, but over time, they’re common even on entry-level and affordable smartphones. LG recently launched its Q6 smartphone in India for Rs 14,990, but it misses out on a fingerprint sensor. For once, it seems like bummer. How could LG miss out adding a feature as crucial as biometric authentication. But then, from another point of view, the LG Q6 offers something that no other competitor is offering.

To begin with, the LG Q6 does feature Face Recognition to compensate for the missing fingerprint sensor. LG says, it’s more convenient to unlock the smartphone with your face rather than typing out passwords, drawing a pattern or using your fingerprint. Even the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 is rumored to ditch the TouchID fingerprint sensor in favor of face recognition. Besides, whether you have a PIN, pattern or password, your smartphone is equally safe and secure from unrestricted access.

Now, coming to the second bit edge-to-edge displays are now gearing up the pace. Last year, Xiaomi launched the Mi MIX with a near bezel-less display. For this year s flagship smartphones, edge-to-edge displays has been the trend and we ve seen that with the LG G6, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. Later this month, Samsung will be launching the Galaxy Note 8, whereas Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 8 next month.

Leaks and rumors have already revealed that both the smartphones will sport edge-to-edge displays. But these are all flagship smartphones, and you will have to spend over Rs 40,000 or more to get a smartphone with edge-to-edge display. LG, on the other hand, is offering the same for less than Rs 15,000. It is a 5.5-inch FullVision display with an aspect ratio of 18:9, resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and a screen-to-body ratio of 78 percent.

Today, people want larger displays on their smartphones, but in a compact form factor. By shaving off the capacitive Android navigation buttons, you do get a larger screen real estate to enjoy watching movies, music videos, web browsing experience and playing games. But wait, there s more the LG Q6 comes with metal body made from strong 7,000-series aluminum to offer military grade durability.

The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage. There is also a microSD card slot for further expansion. For shutterbugs, the LG Q6 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front camera with 100-degree wide-angle lens. The camera app also comes with shooting modes – Snap Shot, Grid Shot, Guide Shot, and Match Shot, as seen on the LG G6.
