LG has just come up with a new entry-level smartphone named LG Q31. This budget handset is unveiled in its home country with no word on global availability yet. While all the specifications remain mediocre, a clear perk in LG Q31 is its software, which runs on Android 10. Here’s everything about it;
LG Q31 Specifications
The South Korean OEM’s new phone has a 5.7″ HD+ display with 720 × 1520p resolution. With 19:9 aspect ratio, it has a U-shaped notch and is MIL-STD-810G compliant. This means the phone is tested to be shock resistant. It runs on Android 10 OS with 3GB of RAM and 32GB on onboard storage. There’s a MicroSD slot for expanding storage upto 2TB.
Under the hood, there’s a MediaTek’s Helio P22 SoC which is an octa-core processor running on 12nm node with all eight Cortex A-53 cores running at 2GHz speeds. With PowerVR GE8320 as GPU, it’s not recommended for any heavy games but for basic things that take much less power.

With audio jack and an accelerometer sensor, it has Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, GPS, LTE and a Type-C USB port. Finally, it has a 3000mAh non-removable battery with no specific fast charging support mentioned, thus determining as unavailable. Yet, it comes with a dedicated Google assistant button for quickly activating it.
