The LG V35 ThinQ is a G7+ for people who want an OLED display

Hot on the heels of the G7+ ThinQ launch, LG announced the V35 ThinQ today. Design-wise, the phone looks very similar to its V30S and V30 predecessors, which includes a MIL-STD 810G build, but internally it has updated hardware that's more in line with the G7+.

The V35 is shorter but wider than the G7+, thanks to a more traditional notchless 18:9 aspect ratio 6-inch QHD+ (2,880 x 1,440) P-OLED display. It is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, with the same 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The phone lacks the Boombox speaker of the G7+, and it's also missing the dedicated power button (instead the fingerprint scanner doubles up as the power button) and Google Assistant button. The V35 also has a slightly larger 3,300mAh battery, compared to the 3,000mAh one inside the G7+.

On the rear, the phone has the same dual rear camera setup as the G7+, pairing a 16-megapixel super wide-angle f/1.9 lens with a 16-megapixel f/1.6 normal lens. Like the G7+, the phone will boast AI camera features that can recognize 19 scenes.

The phone will cost US$899 (~S$1,205), and is scheduled for a June release.
