The LG V35 that was largely reported to be an AT&T exclusive is now official in the US. It’s been priced an eye-watering $900 by the carrier for which pre-orders start tomorrow. If you’d like to sum up the LG V35, it’s essentially an LG G7 inside an LG V30S body. Except that it has a slightly different screen, RAM, and battery.
What are the LG V35 specifications?
The LG V35 rids itself of the notch with a full 6.0-inch FullVision OLED display with QHD+ (2880 x 1440p) resolution. The display is topped by Gorilla Glass 5 and if you’ve seen the LG V30, then you know how the bezel-less design looks. This also means it has IP68 water resistance and MIL-STD 810G ratings. This is something you’d expect of a $900 flagship obviously.
The V35 is equipped with 6GB of RAM versus the 4GB of the LG G7 and it has 64GB of storage. There’s a V35+ variant that has 128GB of storage as well. Sadly enough, the Boombox speakers stay with the LG G7 and don’t come to the V35. But you do get the Hi-Fi Quad DAC. The battery here is also slightly bigger at 3,300mAh. It runs Android 8.0 Oreo with LG’s own custom skin on top of it.
LG has fallen into a vicious circle of relaunching the same device repetitively with different monikers this year and the V35 is an example of this. You can port the whole camera setup of the G7 over here and call it the V35.
In the camera department, the rear side is embraced with a 16MP super wide angle (f/1.9) and 16MP f/1.6). The 8MP wide angle (f/1.9) front-facing camera is for selfies. The LG V35 ThinQ will be on US shelves by June 8. It can be had in Aurora Black and Platinum Gray color options.
