LG unveils details of V35 ThinQ handset
New smartphone features enhanced camera, audio and AI, with faster performance
LG Electronics has released details of its LG V35 ThinQ, the latest iteration of V series of premium multimedia smartphones.
The new handset offers faster performance, enhanced photography, audio and AI functionalities, the company says.
The phone will be launched first in the US this month, followed by select markets around the world.
The device features the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 mobile platform paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The LG V35 ThinQ has a 6-inch 18:9 OLED FullVision display with QHD+ (2880 x 1440) resolution in a compact form factor that weighs only 157g and measures a thin 7.3mm. The screen is Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with a curved edge.
Camera features are a focus for the ThinQ, and the handset has a rear dual camera module featuring two 16MP lenses in standard and Super Wide Angle configurations. The camera includes AI CAM with 19 shooting modes.
The smartphone will also feature Google Lens in the camera app as well as from within Google Assistant and Google Photos. With Google Lens, users can get more information on objects such as landmarks, plants, animals and books by just pointing with the camera. Users can also visit websites, add a business card to contacts and add events to the calendar directly with the camera.
With Super Far Field Voice Recognition (SFFVR) technology, Google Assistant can be accessed by voice up to five meters away. SSFVR is capable of accurately understanding voice commands even over background noises such as a TV and traffic.
The Hi-Fi Quad DAC featured in the V35 ThinQ delivers richer sound when paired with a pair of high-end headphones. And with DTS:X, listeners can enjoy virtual 3D surround sound up to 7.1 channel audio with any content while on the move.
"The LG V35 ThinQ is part of our strategy that we announced early this year to introduce new iterations of existing products that improve on a proven and successful idea," said Hwang Jeong-hwan, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "With carefully considered updates that increases performance and convenience, the LG V35 ThinQ is a great option for anyone looking for a complete and powerful multimedia smartphone."
