LG has silently launched the all new LG V35 ThinQ smartphone as an upgraded version of the LG V30S ThinQ phone that was launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) tech trade show in February this year. The LG V30S ThinQ is essentially the same LG V30 phone from last year, but it includes enhanced software and advanced AI features for camera.

Also, it borrows some of its features from the G7 ThinQ flagship that was launched at the beginning of this month.
Display and Design
The LG V35 ThinQ measures 151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3mm and it weighs 157 grams. Since its dimensions and weight are same as that of V30S ThinQ, both the handsets have identical appeal.

It is yet another LG flagship that comes with IP68 and MIL-810-STDG rated dustproof and waterproof chassis that can withstand harsh weather conditions. The frontside of the phone is mainly occupied by the 18:9 aspect ratio supporting display.
