Recent reports point towards LG working on a mini version of their flagship, the LG G6. This new mini version of the G6 is being reported to be named the LG Q6, which will launch later this year. The report from TechnoBuffalo also points to the fact that the alleged LG Q6 has cleared FCC certification.

However, it is expected that there would be a few more changes.

The LG G6 is currently available for Rs. 39,400, and due to the LG Q6 being a mini variant of the G6 is expected to cost much less. TechnoBuffalo also reported that the smartphone will feature a screen-to-body ratio of less than 80 percent, which could mean that the regular 5.7-inch display gets replaced with a 5.4-inch display.
