LG has launched its very first Q series phone of the year in South Korea named Q51. It is a budget smartphone that flaunts a large display, a triple camera setup and stereo speakers with enhanced audio performance.

Design and Display

LG Q51 Takes Design Cues From its Flagship Brethren

The phone has a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS LCD panel with a water-drop notch at the top and a relatively thick bottom bezel compared to the competition. Official renders of the device have revealed a conventional glass sandwich build.

The back has a triple camera setup arranged in a horizontal layout in the center, just above the fingerprint sensor. The main camera module includes an LED flash unit on the right side.

Internals and Storage

The budget Helio P22 chipset is paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The storage space is further expandable via a micro SD card.

This chipset includes eight of ARM’s Cortex A55 CPU cores clocked at 2.0Ghz and the GPU on it is the PowerVR GE8320 running at 650MHz.


The main camera is a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens that is accompanied by a 5-megapixel ultrawide lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor lens for the bokeh effect. The front-facing camera inside the waterdrop notch is a 13-megapixel sensor with AI-enabled beauty mode, filters, and much more.

Battery and Pricing

The battery compartment holds a large 4,000 mAh power cell, but unfortunately, there is no support for fast charging. However, with only budget specifications, the battery should easily last around 2 days of use.

The LG Q51 is going on sale tomorrow for $261 in Moonlight Titanium and Frozen White color options.
