LG Electronics (LG) has launches the LG Q7, the newest Q series destined to refresh its popular Q6.

The LG Q7 includes features such as Portrait mode, DTS:X Virtual Surround Sound, water and dust resistance and a fingerprint sensor on the back for added security as well as upgraded 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM which is also expandable.

Portrait mode allows users to take selfies with blurred backgrounds for a pleasing bokeh effect. Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) on the rear camera is 23%faster than traditional auto focus options.

The LG Q7 is also the first in its price range to offer DTS:X to deliver virtual surround sound.

It also features a 2.5D Arc Glass design with rounded-edges that makes the device comfortable to hold and operate with one hand. The Q7 can stand up to the rough and tumble of active use thanks to its IP68-certified water and dust resistance rating.

The Q7 has passed 14 of the MIL-STD 810G tests designed by the US military to evaluate the performance of equipment in harsh environments. And the Fast Charge technology can charge the Q7’s battery to 50% in about 30 minutes.

The Smart Rear Key fingerprint sensor complements the premium experience of the LG Q7, and is located below the camera lens to allow users to unlock the phone easily. It can also double as the camera shutter button, take screenshots and control the notification bar.
