LG is most likely working on its 2018 series of smartphones, with the G7 in the pipeline. Now, a fresh report from Android Headline claims that the company is also preparing to launch a flagship smartphone, the LG V35 ThinQ, which as the name suggests, will be the successor to the company’s recently launched V30S+ ThinQ smartphone. Citing a reliable source, the report says that the smartphone will feature a 6-inch QHD+ OLED display with a taller 18:9 display aspect ratio. It is also said to sport an 80-percent screen-to-body ratio and is tipped to not include the notch on its display. The LG V35 ThinQ is said to sport an edge-to-edge design crafted to “fit in the palm of your hand.” and the company is aiming to make it lighter and with a slim form factor. It may be available in Black and Grey colour options at the time of launch, with a “premium glossy finish.”

In the camera department, the smartphone will reportedly feature an upgraded setup with two 16MP rear cameras. One will be a ‘standard’ camera with a glass lens, f/1.6 aperture and 10-bit HDR compatibility, whereas the one is said to be a wide-angle lens with a 107-degree field-of-view. The main cameras will also come with features like quickly switching between the two lenses, “AI Cam,” and Google Lens support at launch. There will also be a Super Bright Mode and “superpixels” for capturing better images in extreme low-light conditions. 

As per the report, the smartphone will come with artificial intelligence (AI), which could be used primarily for image processing and for other tasks like a better response from voice assistant. In terms of audio, the smartphone is expected to feature a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC setup, same as its predecessor, but with additional enhancements and digital filters. It may also include far-field mics for better voice recognition from afar. 

As mentioned earlier, LG is also working on the LG G7 ThinQ, which is confirmed to launch on May 2 in New York, and in Seoul the following day. A previous report outed the smartphone’s renders and suggests that it could be launched in five colours, which include Platinum Grey, Raspberry Rose, Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue, and a matte version of Moroccan Blue. These variants will reportedly be available based on region and carriers. The renders reveal the presence of a notch on the top of G7’s display. The rear images of the phone suggest dual cameras, which are stacked vertically. There is also the fingerprint sensor at the back, which could also feature as the home button.

As for the specifications, previous reports suggest that the LG G7 could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It was also spotted on AnTuTu recently where it scored 2,52,473 on the tests.
