LG Unveils V40 ThinQ Smartphone With Five Cameras

LG V40 ThinQ Back Here's how much the LG V40 ThinQ will cost from U.S. carriers

The V40 features a 6.4in FullVision Quad HD OLED display, with 3120 x 1440 resolution. The smartphone runs Android 8.1 Oreo, which is a disappointment considering previous LG flagships have launched with latest version of Android out-of-the-box.

LG has made a decision to include three horizontally-placed rear-facing cameras on the V40 ThinQ: a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens. The back of the V40 ThinQ is home to a 16MP 107-degree super wide angle lens with f/1.9 aperture, a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and f/2.4 aperture, and a 12MP standard lens with f/1.5 aperture.

Qualcomm's flagship octa-core processor, the Snapdragon 845 clocked at 2.7GHz, and Adreno 630 GPU powers the LG V40 ThinQ.

That accounts for three of the LG V40 ThinQ's cameras.

The main camera is reported to sharpen colors too strongly but we won't know for sure how this performs compared to the high-end competition until we can do our own tests.

Finally, with the holiday season nearly upon us, it's likely the price of the V40 will drop in the coming months. The same applies to the dual front camera, which consists of an 8-megapixel sensor (f/1.9 aperture, 80° angle) and a 5-megapixel sensor (f/2.2 aperture, 90° angle). He also thinks there's a bit of a flaw in the camera setup, noting: "any photo we took using the Triple Shot mode (which cycles through all three cameras) forces the telephoto lens to be used, even in low light situations".

A 3,300mAh battery is packed inside the flagship and should deliver all-day life. It also has the '"Boombox Speaker' feature from the G7, which doubles the bass of conventional speakers by utilizing the internal space of the device as a resonance chamber".

Depending on the game, players can engage in online competitive or co-op multiplayer, or take turns controlling the action. An Internet connection is still required to use online features or games which require a subscription service.


Under the hood of the LG V40 is the high-end hardware we expected.

She continues: "With so many other smartphone makers adding (or rumored to be adding) extra lenses to their devices, splurging on this particular LG handset is a decision you may regret in a few months".

The V40 ThinQ is also created to withstand dust and water according to IP68 standards as well as MIL-ST-810G certification.

Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port.

In a release detailing the product, the new flagship was shown in grey, black, blue and red colours.

The LG V40 ThinQ starts at $900, which translates to about Rs. 65,000 in India. Interestingly, LG is offering a 256GB micro-SD card as well as DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal to select buyers who pre-order the smartphone at marginally higher price.
