LG launched its flagship G7 ThinQ smartphone early this month, and it is being released for select markets only now. The smartphone is now expected to be joined by another premium device called LG V35 ThinQ. According to reports originating from Korea, LG is planning at least four devices for rest of the year including V35 ThinQ and V40 ThinQ.
Now, first image of the alleged LG V35 ThinQ has been caught in the wild. The phone looks identical to the LG V30 and LG V30S ThinQ, which was announced at Mobile World Congress in February. The leaked image is inline with the rumors which predicted that the smartphone will be identical to its predecessor, and brings minor improvements to the hardware.
The smartphone has also appeared on the website of Wireless Power Consortium, which further confirms the authenticity of the leaked image. Tipster Evan Blass tweeted information about the listing of the device on WPC’s website, who had previously said the smartphone is codenamed Emma.
The LG V35 ThinQ is expected to feature a 6-inch P-OLED display with a Quad HD+ resolution of 2880×1440 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. It is not expected to feature a notch similar to that of LG G7 ThinQ. The smartphone is likely to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM. It will feature dual 16-megapixel rear cameras, one regular and one ultra wide-angle lens, similar to the setup found on G7 ThinQ.

The V35 ThinQ is also expected to retain the 3,300mAh battery like its predecessor. The rumors indicate that the V35 ThinQ will launch in Korea as early as next month and LG is planning to bring it to the US as an AT&T exclusive in August. It is not clear whether V40 ThinQ will launch at IFA 2018 or get delayed like the G7.
