The company's latest premium handset has been detailed.
LG has announced the newest addition to its mobile lineup. The V35 ThinQ smartphone is set to launch the US later this month through AT&T and Project Fi.
"The LG V35ThinQ is part of our strategy that we announced early this year to introduce new iterations of existing products that improve on a proven and successful idea," said Hwang Jeong-hwan, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "With carefully considered updates that increase performance and convenience, the LG V35ThinQ is a great option for anyone looking for a complete and powerful multimedia smartphone."
The V35 features a 6.0-inch OLED FullVision 18:9 Display with a QuadHD+ resolution of 2880 x 1440 and 538ppi. In addition, the screen uses scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and offers support for HDR10 video playback. Under the hood, the device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A rear dual camera with 16MP standard and Super Wide Angle lenses, and a front 8MP Wide Angle camera are integrated as well. And when it comes to audio, the smartphone features a Hi-Fi Quad DAC and offers DTS:X support for virtual 3D sound with up to 7.1 channel audio using earphones.
Finally, the device also implements several advanced AI features, including AI CAM with 19 shooting modes for intelligence-optimized shots; Google Lens for discovering more information about objects like landmarks, plants, animals, books, and text; and support for Super Far Field Voice Recognition (SFFVR) via Google Assistant.
Exact pricing and availability for the LG V35 ThinQ smartphone have not been announced yet, but the device is scheduled to start rolling out in the Americas this month before expanding to limited markets in Asia, Middle East, and Africa.
