LG V35 ThinQ coming to AT&T on June 8 for $900

By | 30th May 2018

The phone is also launching on Project Fi.

Shortly after the LG G7 was announced, it was said that AT&T wouldn't be carrying/selling the phone in the U.S. and would instead offer "a new LG device this summer only from AT&T." Now, it's been confirmed that that phone is the LG V35 ThinQ.

AT&T and LG recently announced the new handset, and it lines up perfectly with a leak that surfaced in early May. The V35 ThinQ is essentially a modernized version of the LG V30 from last year and offers almost all of the same specs found with the G7.

The front of the V35 is home to a 6-inch 18:9 Quad HD+ (2880 x 1440) display, but it swaps out the G7's LCD panel for an OLED one. Even better, there's no notch to be found.

The V35 is almost identical to the G7 — save for the OLED screen.

Around back are the G7's excellent dual 16MP rear cameras, the primary one using a standard 71-degree angle with f/1.6 aperture while the second one is a 107-degree wide angle sensor with f/1.9. For the selfie camera, you've got a single 8MP 80-degree sensor with f/1.9 for the aperture.

Under the hood of the V35 ThinQ is the Snapdragon 845 CPU, 6GB RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 3,300 mAh battery. Android 8.0 oreo is present out of the box, there's support for Band 14 for lightning-fast data speeds, and is AT&T's latest phone to support the FirstNet service for first responders.

LG has also confirmed that the V35 will be available on Project Fi, but pricing/availability for the phone on Google's MVNO has yet to be announced.

Pre-orders for the LG V35 ThinQ open up this Friday, June 1, with official sales opening online and in-stores Friday, June 8. The phone will cost $30/month for 30 months on AT&T Next, bringing the final price to a staggering $900.

Now that everything's official, do you feel like spending that kind of cash for the V35?
