LG V35 ThinQ with dual cameras & 6-inch display is on its way

LG V35 ThinQ with dual cameras & 6-inch display is on its way
The LG V35 ThinQ is coming according to newly-leaked information. Back in February, LG announced the upgraded LG V30S ThinQ, which introduced a number of AI features, while only two days ago the company’s next flagship, the LG G7 ThinQ, appeared in a new press render alongside its official colors. Now, thanks to information obtained by AndroidHeadlines, it appears LG has plans for yet another device: the LG V35 ThinQ.

The device itself appears to be yet another iterative LG V-line upgrade, featuring a large 6-inch display with a 2880×1440p (QHD+) resolution, although the panel itself will be of an OLED nature instead of POLED, as was used in the original LG V30. In addition, unlike the upcoming G7 ThinQ, this new smartphone isn’t expected to feature a notch, therefore continuing with the overall look of the V30 and V30S ThinQ while also reaching a screen-to-body ratio of 80%. In terms of the rear panel, a dual-camera setup will once again be present, comprised of a main 16-megapixel lens that features a f/1.6 aperture and a secondary wide-angle 16-megapixel sensor. Furthermore, a number of camera modes are set to be included such as Super Bright Mode that will improve image quality even in low light settings, as well as native support for Google Lens and a new feature dubbed “AI Cam.” Interestingly, both the camera setup and its features are also expected to be featured on the company’s upcoming LG G7 ThinQ. 

Working alongside the new camera experience will also be an improved audio one. As with the original V30, the line’s signature 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC will once again be making a comeback, which should ensure higher quality audio, while users will also have the option of adjusting settings and digital sound filters to their preferences. As an added bonus, the V35 ThinQ will make use of far-field voice recognition, just as is expected with the G7 ThinQ. This should ultimately improve the responsiveness of any digital assistants that may be included as they will now be able to hear users from up to seventeen feet, or 5.2 meters away.

There is yet to be any confirmation as to when consumers can expect the LG V35 ThinQ to go on sale but considering the LG G7 ThinQ launch is set for May 2, it’s possible that the updated V-line device will also make an appearance. In any case, the new smartphone will initially be available in two glossy colors: Black and Grey.

Better front camera. If Huawei can stuff a quality ffc in a $200 7x they have no excuse.

every LG front cam is trash on stock camera app, my V20 and my brother's V30 can attest to that. installed the gcam port and it looks like there's a totally different camera sensor in this thing now

LG G7 Notch LG V35 No Notch I just hope they fix the selfie camera, add a minimum of 6GB of RAM and fix their RAM management problems! LG phones always run out of memory when multitasking. And I say this as an LG Fan!

What about the earphones that come with the phone? It's a massive selling point as well, if this phone comes with earphones from B&O as it did previously with a few of the V-series phones. A pair of earphones from B&O would completely outperform anything else out there, it's better than both Samsung's AKG earphones, and Apple's Airpods. No doubt about that. they don't come close in build quality, sound nor design.

I don't really want to pay more for included earphones. Especially since I already have all the headphones I need.

No one cares about the included headphones. That's why they are missing even on some flagship-grade phones.

This looks like a nice contender for this year. Just get the image processing right and this might be a device to be reckoned with.

Most likely it will as this is not the V40, but rather an interim. The V40 will probably launch in November.

LG is Doomed too many variants. Instead 1 excellent phone make 4 half baked phone an that will sell more. LG is f**king his concumers with a every few month small upgrade version V30-Line.

And to think, LG CEO himself said their new strategy was to only launch phones when absolutely necessary.... Seems like what they actually meant was, release a new variant every few months.

V35 is good unlike V30S LG G7 will be a cheap flagship and V35 will be true beast It is a meaningful strategy

LG's problem ? They don't have the technology to do what customers really want. Half-baked phones reflect their technological power.

If it has no notch. I'll go with this over the G7. Now the waiting game starts

Great news. No notch, pllus, 3200x1800 means 16:9!! That would be perfect on a 6" screen!

" this new smartphone isn’t expected to feature a notch". This maybe the sole reason to buy this phone. The notch is a dumb design choice.

I only hope the bootloader can be unlocked and has great custom rom support. That was the only thing keeping me from buying the v30

Same. LG is the only OEM I haven't tried yet. Maybe in the near future.

Is it me or it's a bit strange they didn't name it V40, all the previous models were models incremented by 10 (V10, V20 and V30 (I'm not counting the V30s)), maybe by naming it V35 the change is not so significant like it was in previous years.

LG just need to work out how to get their phones into the hands of retailers...

I just want the OG V30 to drop in price to replace my V20. For those that said they never had a LG. My V20 has been solid. I'm not that into specs and all that anymore. It just needs a 3.5 and HiFi DAC for me. When all these new ones come out I'll grab a V30 or XZ1

Well well. Guess I'll wait for this then. I love the V series skipping only the V30 because the V20 was so good and still enjoying it. Might just stay with the V series forever.lol

If it has Oreo out of the box(because of Treble) and Soc 845 I might buy that!

I might buy it even it has SoC 835 and reasonable price. I hope that the front facing camera would be updated too.
