If you have been unable to keep up LG’s flurry of flagship phones this year (and their awkward names), the company has announced another one today. The much-rumored V40 ThinQ is now official and just like the leaks suggested, it comes with a total of five cameras — three on the rear and two on the front. The rest is largely identical to LG’s existing flagship phones.
Before diving into what’s new, here is what LG didn’t change — the V40 ThinQ features the same all-glass exterior, a notch-equipped Quad HD OLED screen, headphone jack, “boombox” speaker, Snapdragon 845 processor, oodles of storage and memory, Android Oreo-based custom software, IP68 rated water as well as dust resistance, and a dedicated hardware key for invoking the Google Assistant.
The LG V40 ThinQ’s biggest highlight is its pack of cameras. On the rear, there’s a standard 12-megapixel f/1.5 lens, a super-wide-angle 16-megapixel f/1.9 snapper with a 107-degree field of view, and a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom. You can leverage all of their abilities individually or even combine them with a neat camera trick LG has bundled. Of course, there’s also regular Portrait and Portrait Lightning modes available.
On the front, there’s a pair of selfie cameras as well — a standard 8-megapixel shooter coupled with a wide-angle 5-megapixel lens. In addition, the LG V40 ThinQ offers a slightly larger 3300mAh battery which can be topped up wireless charging and is compatible with Quick Charge 3.0.
The LG V40 ThinQ will retail between $900 and $980 based on the carrier in the United States. It will be available from October 18th in black or blue color options.
