Style and protect your phone with the best LG V35 ThinQ cases

With cutting-edge hardware, A.I. smarts, and a refined design, there are plenty of reasons to snag a new LG V35 ThinQ. This expensive piece of tech is packed with tricks, but the design is a thin aluminum frame sandwiched by glass — and that spells danger. Drop this phone and you could end up with unsightly cracks or scratches. The smart play is to buy a case to protect it from harm.

The LG V35 ThinQ is a lot like the LG V30 on the outside, but unfortunately the same cases will not always fit the LG V35 because the camera placement is slightly different. Imprint your own style and get some protection with one of the best LG V35 ThinQ cases.

Incipio Beaded Floral Case ($25)

This is part of Incipio’s Design Series, which aims to bring a touch of fashion to the smartphone world by embedding eye-catching, metallic foil designs into protective, translucent cases. The clear, hard back cover is scratch-resistant and there’s a flexible frame designed to take the sting out of any impact. You’ll find accurate cutouts for the ports, as well as the fingerprint sensor and camera on the back. There are also button covers for the volume controls on the side. If you’re not keen on the floral design, there is a cosmic alternative with stars and crescent moons.

Spigen Rugged Armor Case ($13)

If you want a decent level of protection and a touch of carbon fiber style, then this offering from Spigen should suit you. It’s a standard TPU case that’s flexible enough to absorb shock from falls and bumps. The matte black finish enhances your grip slightly and shrugs off greasy fingerprints. There’s a lip top and bottom to keep the screen from touching down on surfaces, though it doesn’t extend around the sides. You’ll also find accurate openings for the ports and camera and a recessed cutout for the fingerprint sensor. The carbon fiber-style panels and gloss highlights add some visual flair.

Speck Presidio Grip Case ($45)

For any butterfingers out there who can’t seem to stop dropping their phone, the Speck Presidio Grip is here to help. Special rubbery ridges give this hard, protective case a unique look, but they also make it far easier to grip your phone. If you do happen to drop it, this tough case can handle falls of up to 10 feet, ensuring your LG V35 stays safe and in perfect condition. It’s a bit chunkier than some other cases, but you get the extra benefit in drop protection. The recessed cutouts are all exactly where they should be and the button covers for the volume are well-defined. This case also has a raised bezel that goes all the way around the screen.

Tech21 Evo Check Case ($45)

This is one of the most reliable, protective LG V35 cases on the market. It’s a lightweight, translucent case with a check pattern on the back. You’ll find a ridged, highly protective bumper goes around the outside of your phone to guard against potential drop damage. Fully tested for falls of up to 10 feet, you can be confident when your phone is wearing this case. The cutouts are in the right places and there’s some extra room around the headphone jack for wider plugs.

Ringke Fusion Case ($11)

With a combination of hard, clear polycarbonate on the back and a flexible TPU bumper that comes in a variety of shades, the Ringke Fusion offers a decent level of protection and complements your LG V35’s style. The openings for the headphone jack and charging port have plugs to keep dirt and dust out. The case extends a little around the screen to prevent it from coming into contact with surfaces if you place it facedown, or if it lands that way after a fall. This isn’t a really rugged case, but it should be enough to safeguard your LG V35 from a typical pocket-height drop.

LG’s next flagship phone, the V60 ThinQ, leaks after MWC cancellation
LG V60 ThinQ press render leak

LG’s next flagship phone, the LG V60 ThinQ, which was expected to launch next week at the now-canceled Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona, has broken cover in a leaked press render published by Android Headlines.

The leak offers the first look at the LG V60 ThinQ’s front, which is largely dominated by a large screen that features a tiny notch. The notch appears to be thinner than the V50 ThinQ's, which hints at the absence of additional sensors for hands-free air gestures. The image also reveals a familiar design in a gold frame, although it’s unclear whether the phone features a dual-tone color similar to what LG has done in the past. The V60 ThinQ also inherits its predecessor’s dedicated Google Assistant hardware key on the left.

The dual-screen LG G8X ThinQ launches on November 1 for just $700

Two screens on a regular smartphone? That's what LG's G8X ThinQ Dual Screen is promising. It's similar to the dual-screen attachment LG showed off at MWC 2019 on the V50 ThinQ, but there have been a lot of changes to improve this new version over the first, and it has made it a considerably more interesting solution to our modern multi-tasking woes.

But a dual-screen accessory isn't the only new feature with the LG G8X ThinQ. From an ASMR mode to a 32-megapixel selfie camera, here’s everything you need to know about it.
The phone
The LG G8X ThinQ is a revised version of the LG G8, also released earlier this year. The design is identical, so it has a smooth, lightweight body that’s warm to the touch. It weighs 192 grams and is 8.8mm thick. On the front is a 6.4-inch OLED screen with a small teardrop notch at the top, and it has an FHD+ resolution. The screen also contains a fingerprint sensor, similar to Samsung's Galaxy S10 range.

Wave your hands if you want the powerful, yet more affordable LG G8S ThinQ
lg g8s thinq release news close

LG has launched the LG G8S ThinQ, a spin-off of the existing LG G8 ThinQ, both of which were announced earlier this year at Mobile World Congress in March. LG’s revised S version has a few alterations, but don’t expect the S suffix to mean the phone has a higher specification than the regular LG G8. Instead, the G8S will cost a little less than the G8, while still providing plenty of performance and ability.

Two main aspects remain unchanged: A Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, and the unusual hand gesture system using LG’s Z Camera setup. A time-of-flight (ToF) sensor lets you use specific hand motions to interact with the phone -- LG calls this feature Air Motion -- without touching the screen. The phone can be unlocked, you can switch between apps, and even raise or lower the volume using the movement of your hand hovering over the phone.
