LG has adopted a new model policy that is creating some controversy. On the one hand, we applaud the fact that models that have been on the market for some time are updated, but on the other hand, they may be abusing high-end devices that are very similar in appearance and performance, and design of the LG V35 ThinQ is good proof of that.
Now the first live photo of the device has appeared and confirms what was an open secret, the design of the LG V35 ThinQ is identical to that of the LG V30S ThinQ except for a number in the back. In our opinion, LG could have waited perfectly to the LG V40 to incorporate the new features that this device will bring, thus avoiding overloading the high range and confusing the buyer.
One of the criticisms that Samsung had to suffer when he launched the Galaxy S9 was the fact that the design of the same was very similar to the Galaxy S8, and that was so despite the fact that The Galaxy S9 changed the position of the fingerprint reader and reduced a little the upper and lower bevels compared to its predecessor.
We understand that create a completely new design for each smartphone is not an easy task and there will come a time when there will be little room for innovation, but even so, we can not stop asking two things: the first is whether the LG V40 will use the same SoC Snapdragon 845 or it will arrive with the Snapdragon 855, the second is how LG will convince the potential buyer of the LG V35 ThinQ to buy a smartphone identical to the previous one after the fact that the LG V30 will also be updated with artificial intelligence .
The case is that LG V35 ThinQ has gone through the Russian FCC, and therefore, have been confirmed again specifications that we have already seen in previous occasions.
The LG V35 ThinQ will use a screen of 6 inches with resolution QHD of 2880 × 1440 pixels , a processor Snapdragon 845 , 6GB of RAM, an internal storage of 128GB and a 3000mAh battery, all under Android 8.1 Oreo.
Apart from the processor used, the only palpable differences with the LG V30 ThinQ arrive in the photographic section, where one of the sensors rises up to 16MPx (aperture F / 1.6, HDR 10) and the front camera rises from 5 Mpx to the 8 Mpx . As we have already said, the design of the LG V35 ThinQ will be identical.
In short, if we were given a choice between an LG V30 ThinQ with an SD835 processor and a worse camera at a discounted price and a LG V35 ThinQ of 800 euros a little more powerful and with better selfies, the truth is that we would doubt much given that its appearance is the same. Maybe LG is doing the competition to itself with both intermediate model. What do you think?
