LG launched its latest flagship device the LG G7 ThinQ a couple of weeks ago. The smartphone was in the news for a long time courtesy of a slew of leaks prior to its official launch. Now, a leaked render of a new smartphone named LG V35 ThinQ has appeared online to reveal its design elements.
As per a report by AndroidHeadlines, the new smartphone with model number LM-V350EM has been certified by United States Federal Communications Commission. The report also claimed that the LG V35 ThinQ will not be the successor to the LG V30 or LG V30S ThinQ and would instead become a stepping stone between the 2017 and 2018 LG V series launches.
Unlike the LG G7 ThinQ, the LG V35 will come with an upgraded display panel and is expected to arrive with a 6-inch OLED display. Apart from the LG V35 ThinQ, the company is also expected to unveil the LG V40 in the latter half of this year.
Since the smartphone has already received its FCC certification, we are expecting a summer release of the LG V35 ThinQ. The leaked render also shows promotional activities from mobile carrier AT&T and displays the date, August 10. It may indicate the launch date of the LG V35 ThinQ.
The render also shows that the LG V35 ThinQ will not come with the iPhone-X like display notch which was introduced in the LG G7 ThinQ. Interestingly, the company also said that it had planned to roll out the notch feature on its flagship devices much earlier than Apple but somehow it did not work out.
At an official event in Seoul, South Korea, LG mobile division chief Hwang Jeong-hwan said, “We planned the notch design before Apple.” He also said that instead of calling it the notch, the folks at LG prefers to call it a ‘second display’.
In addition, the company also has plans to roll out Animoji support to its devices in the future like Apple. Hwang said, “Those software features can be updated later and will be available both on the G7 and other preceding models to meet the demand of consumers who want a longer lifespan for their smartphones.”
