The handset, as stated by media, is not an entirely new smartphone but is claimed to be the Android One version of the current LG Q7.

LG To Roll Out Its First Ever Android One Handset


The first evidence of Android One handset by LG was located in the LG Stylo 4’s kernel source code. The LG Stylo 4 is just a few days away from being rolled out in the U.S. Fascinatingly, LG has gone ahead and has rolled out the Stylo 4’s kernel source code. The report claims that this will also be the first handset by LG that will be operating on Android 8.1 Oreo OS.

Now that there is a proof hinting the entrance of an LG Q7 Android One handset, it has been cited that the specific handset will not be accessible for all at first. As per the source code, the handset will be arriving to T-Mobile consumers in the U.S. Except for the version of OS, rest of the specs of the rumored Android One LG Q7 model must remain the same.

To recall, the smartphone spots a full HD+ 5.5-inch (1080 x 2160 pixels) Full Vision screen, Snapdragon Qualcomm 450 chipset, 32 GB inbuilt memory (with support to microSD card), 3 GB RAM, 5 MP front camera, and 13 MP rear camera.

The portfolio of Android One platform has extended in the last couple of months with Motorola, Xiaomi, and Nokia (HMD Global) joining the group. Lately HMD rolled out 3 new budget handsets operating on Android One namely Nokia 3.1, Nokia 2.1, and 5.1.
