The LG Q31 is powered by the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC, paired with 3GB of RAM. The phone has dual cameras at the back with a 13-megapixel main sensor. It has a dedicated Google Assistant button and is MIL-STD 810G certified for durability.
The new LG Q31 is priced at KRW 2,09,000 (roughly Rs. 13,200) for the lone 3GB + 32GB storage model. The phone will go on sale in South Korea from September 25. It has launched in a single metallic silver colour option. There is no word on availability outside South Korea right now.
Coming to the specifications, the new LG Q31 features a 5.7-inch HD+ display and is powered by the 2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 MT6762 SoC. It packs 3GB of RAM and offers 32GB of internal storage. The storage is further expandable using a microSD card (up to 2TB).
For photos and videos, the LG Q31 phone packs two cameras on the back and one on the front. The rear camera setup includes a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel wide-angle secondary lens. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel sensor housed inside the U-shaped notch.
The LG Q31 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery and connectivity options include Wi-Fi, LTE, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS, NFC and a USB Type-C port for charging.
