To some consumers disappointment, the new colours are not met with the release of a major new software update.
The speculation is that LG may announce a new LG V30 variant at MWC in February, instead of launching the LG G7 on the one year anniversary of the G6.
When the South Korean tech company launched the G6 early past year, the device came in five color variants, namely: Astro Black, Ice Platinum, Mystic White Terra Gold and Marine Blue. Meanwhile, the Q6 will be getting the Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet options, with Raspberry Rose notably missing from the list. These are all colors that were previously limited to just the V30, and yes, that's the same Raspberry Rose that stole our hearts at CES in early January.
As per the press statement published by the company, these new variants of the LG G6 and LG Q6 will be the ideal gift options for special occasions such as entrance ceremony, graduation ceremony, and Valentine's Day. It's now available in the U.S., where it sells for about $600 unlocked. Henceforth, the G6 and Q6 will have eight and seven color variants respectively.
The sophisticated hue of Moroccan Blue is inspired by the attractive blue buildings in the city of Chefchaouen, Morocco while the silvery romantic shade of Lavender Violet is developed to appeal men and women who appreciate finer things in life. The secondary camera has a 125-degree wide angle lens too. There is a 3300mAh battery under the hood. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
The LG Q6, on the other hand, sports a 5.5-inch FullVision display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels.
The smartphone runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS and it is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery.
