LG launched its flagship smartphone, the G7 ThinQ with Snapdragon 845 chipset early this month. While the smartphone is yet to become available globally, the South Korean company might be preparing to launch the V35 ThinQ, an updated version of company’s V30 ThinQ smartphone.
The launch might be imminent if a new leak is anything to go by. The specification sheet of the V35 ThinQ has been photographed ahead of its official launch and it confirms some of the rumored features of the smartphone. The specification sheet hints at V35 ThinQ borrowing some of its hardware feature from G7 ThinQ. The listing shows V35 ThinQ will also be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage.
The listing first spotted by Wordsoftech hints at the smartphone getting a 6-inch display with a Quad HD+ resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels, which translates to a taller 18:9 aspect ratio. While the listing does not reveal whether LG is using LCD or OLED panel, the rumors hint at LG going with the RGBW IPS panel with support for high brightness equivalent to 1,000 nits. The V35 ThinQ also borrows the dual 16-megapixel rear camera setup first introduced with the G7 ThinQ.
The primary 16-megapixel camera uses a f/1.6 lens with optical image stabilization and phase detection autofocus. The secondary 16-megapixel camera is a wide-angle lens with f/1.9 aperture, phase detection autofocus but it lacks optical image stabilization. The V35 ThinQ also borrows the 8-megapixel selfie camera from the G7 ThinQ. It is not immediately clear how LG will differentiate the V35 ThinQ from the G7 ThinQ since they share the branding and hardware features.

In the past, LG’s V-series smartphones differed from their G-series sibling with the addition of a secondary display. With the launch of V30 last year, LG decided to drop the secondary display and went back to standard smartphone design. Now, with common hardware features across the board, it is not clear how V35 ThinQ will be different from that of G7 ThinQ. LG is also rumored to launch the V40 ThinQ codenamed Storm later this year which will be the flagship successor to last year’s V30 and V30 Plus.
