LG will Drop The Notch For The LG V35 ThinQ
LG launched the G7 ThinQ on the 2nd of May. The smartphone hardly had anything surprising features as most of them were leaked much before it officially launched. After a few other OEMs, LG also embraced the infamous notch with G7 ThinQ. Now, it looks like the company will revert to the old design for its upcoming smartphone, the LG V35 ThinQ.
The LG V35 ThinQ will be a follow-up to the V30, which was launched in India in December 2017. New renders of the LG V35 ThinQ reveal that LG might not be fond of the design of G7 ThinQ. The company will move back to a traditional design with uniform bezels all around the bezels. This could be a good news for people looking to buy an LG smartphone but, are not the biggest fans of the notch.
Another reason for LG not going for notched display could be to differentiate the lineups. It is also rumoured that the V35 ThinQ will have an OLED panel like its predecessor. The G7 ThinQ has an LCD display and LG has talked up its brightness levels up until now. This means that LG does want differentiating factors between the two lineups and the notch could be a major factor.
According to the leaks, the LG V35 ThinQ will have a 6 inch QHD+ OLED “FullVision” display. The device will have an 18:9 aspect ratio and an 80% screen-to-body ratio.
Under the hood, the smartphone will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The onboard storage is expected to expandable via a microSD card. The one feature that could make its way to the V35 ThinQ from the G7 is the Google Assistant button. As the name of the smartphone suggests, the V35 will have a lot of emphasis on AI.
The LG V30 was launched in August in 2017 but, the V35 ThinQ probably won’t follow the same pattern. The smartphone is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2018 as LG would want to launch new smartphones as and when required.
