LG V35 ThinQ Leak: Is this our first look at the next flagship?

The LG G7 ThinQ finally made its belated bow this week, but we can’t help but think the flagship range has lost its place at the top of LG’s smartphone table.

Yesterday, we reported it’ll be the V-Series phones will offer cutting edge specs from now on, like the OLED screen missing from the G7, for example.

The next addition to the V-Series is set to be the V35 ThinQ and, right on cue, we may have our first look at the phone.

Android Headlines has published a purported render (below) of the phone and one feature (or lack of) in particular immediately stands out…

There’s no display notch. Check out its majesty, notch haters!

If the image is an accurate representation of the phone LG will reveal later this year, it also confirms the presence of dual cameras and a rear-facing fingerprint sensor.

It appears the site has an “in” with someone at LG, because this is the second major leak pertaining to the forthcoming V35 release.

Apparently the phone will have a 6-inch QHD OLED display with an 18:9 aspect ration and an upgraded dual camera array. The phone will also include the QuadDAC audio technology, according to the report. Elsewhere, we can probably expect the same Snapdragon 845 processor that appeared in the G7 this week.

Speaking of the newly announced handset, we got our first look this week.

In his early impressions, our reviews editor Alastair Stevenson wrote: “The LG G7 ThinQ may not look like the most original phone around, but from what I’ve seen thus far, it ticks all the right boxes for a flagship device.”

We’ll have a full review for you in the coming weeks.
