LG V series has always been centered around media consumption. Starting with last year’s LG V30 LG has started to revamp its smartphone division. The main goal of this revamp is to create some noticeable difference between their G and V series. So with LG V40 ThinQ which is a hand full of a name we get a couple of more distinctions from LG G7 ThinQ that launched early this year. We will talk about all this below.
LG V40 ThinQ Launch Date
At thr mid of September 2018 LG sent out press invites which shows that LG is holding an event on October 3rd. In the press invite we see a couple of things that confirm that it is the LG V40 ThinQ we are getting out of this event. The invite tells us about the most anticipated of this smartphone which is a total of 5 camera lenses. So October 3rd is the date when we get this beast.
LG V40 ThinQ Display
LG V40 ThinQ will come with a large 6.4 inches p-OLED display thanks to smaller bezels instead of an LCD and more chunkier bezels as we have on LG G7 ThinQ. LG V40 ThinQ will have Quad HD resolution and it will most probably support the bump up to 1000 nits brightness as we have on LG G7 whenever you are outside in sunlight which is quite amazing. Yes LG V40 ThinQ will have a notch but it might have 3D mapping technology for face recognition along with dual cameras.
LG V40 ThinQ Cameras
This is the most highlighted and the most boasted feature of LG V40 ThinQ. This is almost confirmed by now not only by renders but also by LG itself that LG V40 ThinQ will come with a total of 5 camera lenses. Three of them will be on the back while two will be on front. The triple camera on the back will have one 20MP RGB sensor with super large and fast aperture of f/1.5. Aperture this large will help the smartphone in extreme low light conditions. The second sensor will be LG’s signature 16MP wide angle lens which will also be improved. The third and the new sensor will most probably be a 13MP Telephoto lens for optical zoom not a monochrome as we have on Huawei P20 Pro.
AT the front we are getting a Dual camera combination which is most probably for that 3D face recognition technology as well as better Front camera performance as LG is not very well known for their selfie cameras. Let’s hope this turns out better for LG this time. Here is teaser from LG about the cameras.
LG V40 ThinQ Internals
LG V40 ThinQ internals are no secret, we already know all about it. As all other 2018 flagships LG V40 ThinQ will have Snapdragon 845 along with 6GB RAM and will most probably have 8GB RAM in high end model. LG V40 ThinQ will have latest Adreno 630 for best GPU performance there is in the market right now. LG V40 ThinQ will also have stereo speakers that will support LG’s boombox technology they introduced with LG G7. LG V40 ThinQ will retain the headphone jack thankfully that will have LG’s Quad Dac technology to enhance your headphone experience.
LG V40 ThinQ seems to be an all around smartphone on paper but at the end of the day something goes wrong which might be the pricing. Let’s hope LG figure what they have been doing wrong.
