The smaller Olympus 35 RC was introduced in 1970. The exposure is entirely manually controlled. The RC is one of a few fixed-lens rangefinder cameras with a top mounted control for shutter speed. Aperture can also be set for automatic (A).
The RC has the choice of full manual control, while the LE only has focusing and ASA/ISO setting to be operated by the user.
Size is different but thickness is similar due to the constraints of the film cassette inside.

Here are two 120-film rolls to be shipped to the Rescued Film Project. Read more at the Rescued Film Website. These rolls were found in cameras I've purchased at thrift shops. The modes of development of old films like these are complicated, and only a few labs exist in the world that are ready to take on the task of gently developing them.
