AT&T might forego selling the LG G7 ThinQ in favor of exclusivity with V35 ThinQ

LG unveiled its latest flagship, the G7 ThinQ a couple of days ago at an event in Manhattan with a focus on AI, extra loud audio, and an ultra-bright display with a notch. It would appear that AT&T will not be selling the G7 ThinQ, though, in favor of being the exclusive stockist of the V35 ThinQ.

The V35 ThinQ appears to be an in-between follow-up from the V30/V30S, sporting a 6-inch OLED “FullVision” display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, with no notch in sight. On the back will be dual 16MP cameras in a horizontal position above the fingerprint reader. As with other LG handsets, there will be a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC but with an emphasis on AI. The outer casing is said to feature a “premium, glossy finish” in Black or Gray colors. And did I mention that there isn’t a notch?

According to AndroidHeadlines, AT&T has scheduled a “Summer” release date for the V35 ThinQ, although no exact details on pricing or an actual date are known. The reasoning behind this AT&T exclusive is unclear, as is LG’s mobile phone strategy to be honest, which is frankly confusing, especially since we expect the V40 to launch sometime in Q3. Will it help LG break out of the doldrums with its mobile division? Only time will tell.

What do you make of the V35 ThinQ being exclusively available from AT&T?

    It’s unlikely that I will ever sign up with AT&T but passing on the G7 is a mistake. I think the phone has the potential to become a hit. LG needs to promote the phone and talk about all the high end features it brings. More reviewers need to do head to head tests against the other devices.
