It’s not déjà vu — LG has yet another new phone, following the release of its flagship LG G7 ThinQ earlier this month and the LG V30s that came out in February.
The LG V35 ThinQ is the new kid, merging the V30s design with features that we first saw on the G7.
However, there are three differences between the V35 and the G7. First, you don’t get a traditional 6.1 inch QHD+ OLED screen, instead of an edge-to-edge one. Second, a larger 3,300mAh battery is on board. And third, there’s more power on the inside thanks to 6GB of RAM.
The V35 ThinQ is similar to the V30 in terms of design but those beefed-up specs put it on par with the G7. Like other phones from LG with the “ThinQ” moniker, the V35 has a focus on artificial intelligence.
You’ll see that in Google Lens, which is built into the camera and can identify things like statues, plants, or books in real time. The dual camera on the back has 19 shooting modes, including Portrait for the crucial bokeh shots. It ships with Android 8.0 Oreo, which of course includes Google Assistant (LG doesn’t have its own… at least not yet).
The LG V35 ThinQ costs $900 at full retail, which is a very premium price in 2018. In the U.S. it will be coming June 8 to AT&T (which curiously didn’t carry the LG G7), costing $30 a month for 30 months on the carrier’s Next installment plan.
