South Korean electronics major, LG has announced the launch of V35 ThinQ. The newest V series device will be rolling out in the Americas starting in June for about Rs 60,000 and it will be later released in some markets of Asia, Middle East and Africa.
The V35 ThinQ is armed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 mobile platform which is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The LG V35 ThinQ has a 6-inch 18:9 OLED FullVision display with QHD+ (2880 x 1440) resolution in a compact and it weighs only 157g and measures a thin 7.3mm.
The display has scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that is curved around the edge for a sleek and premium feel. The LG V35 ThinQ is built to withstand the rigors of daily use with its IP68 rating for dust and water resistance and a passing grade in 14 of the US military’s MIL-STD 810G tests for reliability of equipment performance in harsh environments.
The V35 ThinQ sports dual rear camera in the rear panel consisting of two 16MP lenses. In the front there is an 8 megapixel camera. The phone comes with various camera features that include mproved AI CAM with 19 shooting modes, Portrait Mode to create bokeh shots with both the front and rear cameras, Live Photo to record a scene immediately before and after the shutter is pressed as well as Stickers for fun 2D or 3D overlay effects using face recognition.
It also features the new Super Bright Camera to capture low light images that are approximately four times brighter. With the help of pixel binning and advanced software processing techniques, the AI algorithm determines the best settings when shooting in dim environments.
It features Google Lens in the camera app as well as from within Google Assistant and Google Photos. With Google Lens, users can get more information on objects such as landmarks, plants, animals and books by just pointing with the camera. Users can also visit websites, add a business card to contacts and add events to the calendar directly with the camera.
With Super Far Field Voice Recognition (SFFVR) technology, Google Assistant can be accessed by voice up to five meters away. SSFVR is capable of accurately understanding voice commands even over background noises such as a TV and traffic, claimed LG.
