LG's been rather busy lately, as it's not been working on just a single new flagship, but apparently two new ones. The LG V35 ThinQ is the alternative to the LG G7 ThinQ, sporting an OLED display without a notch, as well as the rest of the visual aesthetics from the LG V30 that was launched last Autumn. The LG V35 ThinQ's display was purportedly decided by AT&T, as the US-based cell carrier opted out of the G7's design primarily because they didn't want another LG phone with an LCD, and didn't want a design with a notch. That notch-less 6-inch LG-made OLED display from the V30 is on the V35 ThinQ, and sports all the same excellent specs, including HDR10 capabilities and Google Daydream VR support.
Inside is an upgrade Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, a step up from the LG V30 and V30S, which were powered by a Snapdragon 835 instead. Also upgraded is the amount of RAM, as the V35 will be shipping with 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM instead of the 4GB of RAM on the LG G7 ThinQ. 64GB of internal storage is standard, as is microSD card support for expandable storage, should you need it. The cameras have received an all-around upgrade when it comes to sensors, but a seeming downgrade when it comes to lenses. Like the G7 ThinQ, both rear sensors are now 16-megapixel Sony IMX351 sensors, which sport 1.0-micron pixel sizes, a 1/3.09" sensor size, and the ability to do pixel binning for what LG calls the Super Bright Camera. This takes 4 pixels and combines them virtually into one, allowing far more light into the sensor, but reducing the overall resolution.
The secondary rear camera lens has been downgraded from a 120-degree angle lens down to a 107-degree angle, but the smaller angle also enables portrait mode on the camera. That front-facing camera is also seeing a sensor upgrade, shipping with an 8-megapixel camera and an f/1.9 lens, however this lens too has been reduced from 90-degrees on the V30, down to 80-degrees on the V35.
