LG Japan has officially unveiled their much-anticipated flagship smartphone of the year, AKA, the LG V35. The LG V35 is a rebranded LG V30+, which runs on Android Oreo with LG UX on the top. However, the company hasn’t disclosed anything about the pricing or the availability.
The design is something similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S8, with all glass back panel on the front and the back, making it look premium. However, the one drastic design in comparison with any smartphone is the fact that, this device doesn’t have a dedicated power button, instead, the phones fingerprint scanner doubles as the power button, which is one of the cool technological implementation that we have seen in the recent times.
Coming to the actual tech specifications, the LG V35 features a massive 6.0-inch POLED QHD+ display with all new 18:9 cinematic aspect ratio. Just like the LG G6, this smartphone also supports Dolby Vision and HDR 10. So, you can watch your favorite Netflix shows in a cinematic view. The smartphone also features a special audio dack, which should enhance the sound via the headphone jack. Just like most of the premium flagship smartphones, the LG V35 is powered by top of the tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Octa-core SoC, paired with 4 GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128 GB internal storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot.
This is one of the last few flagship smartphones, that also retains the 3.5 mm headphone jack along with the IP68 water and dust resistance rating. Not to forget the wireless charging, which is now a universal standard. The best part of this smartphone is the camera, and we can proudly say that this smartphone has the best camera hardware when it comes to the camera.
Just like the most of the premium flagship smartphones, the LG V35 offers a dual rear-facing camera with a primary 16 GB RGB sensor with F/1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization. The secondary 13 MP sensor also has a wider F/1.9 aperture with a wide viewing angle. For the selfie camera, the smartphone uses a 5 MP fixed focus selfie camera with 90-degree viewing angle, making it the one of the widest front-facing selfie camera. The main camera does offer a variety of cinematic recording options with the ability to tweak colors after recording the video footage, due to the existence of the OIS, the video clips should come out to be crisp and clear without any latency.
Finally, the smartphone gets its juice from the 3300 mAh Li-ion battery with fast charging capability with wireless charging capability (on all the models). So, one can refuel the smartphone in no time.
