LG might not have had much success with the LG G6 in India or with any of its recent phones launched in India. However, the company’s recently launched mid-range handset, the LG Q6, has managed to stir quite an interest among consumers in India.
What makes the LG Q6 special is that it comes with an 18:9 aspect ratio bezel-less display that is so far only been seen on flagship handsets like the Galaxy S8 and the LG G6. Getting to experience a device with almost a bezel-less front is perhaps why many Indian consumers are interested in the Q6.
