Announcement. LG Q61 for Korean market - LG K61 twin?

LG introduced in its native Korean market a smartphone called LG Q61.

Unfortunately, LG was too shy to talk aboutbrand of processor used. Only its frequency (2300) and the number of cores (8) were indicated. Peppy chipsets from Qualcomm, Snapdragon 712 and Snapdragon 720G are suitable for these numbers. And the sad old man MediaTek Helio P35 (2018 of release, about one hundred thousand points in AnTuTu).

Intuition tells me that in the LG Q61Helio P35 is used. Why? Because for all other characteristics, the LG Q61 is an exact copy of the recently launched European smartphone LG K61, where it is used as the P35.

The announced price is a bit confusing. 369,600 Korean won (₽21,700, $ 300) for a smartphone on the Helio P35 - to put it mildly, a bit much. However, this is LG. They always value themselves with some margin.

Briefly go over the rest of the characteristics. Large screen (6.5 ″) high resolution (1080 × 2340, 396 ppi) with a neat hole for the front camera.

There are a lot of cameras. Front camera 16 MP. Rear quartet, 48 + 8 + 5 + 2 MP (main, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor).

The battery is normal, 4000 mAh. The presence or absence of fast charging is not reported.

There is support for NFC, a fingerprint scanner, dual-band Wi-Fi. They promise good sound and protection according to the MIL-STD-810 standard (which of the tests the smartphone passed, not specified).

Some Korean sources mention that soon LG Q61 should appear outside of Korea. Somewhere around the American continents.
