Adjust Comment Print

The LG V40 ThinQ features a 6.4-inch (3120 x 1440 pixels) FullVision OLED display. Not just because it's launching with Android 9.0 Pie on board, but mostly because it'll get guaranteed fast Android updates for at least two years going forward.

LG's phone isn't the first to have three sensors on the back.

LG has packed its camera software with features like triple-shot, which allows you to click three photos - one from each lens - on a push of a button. This has a f/1.5 aperture and a pixel size of 1.4 micron.

The newly launched V-series smartphone comes with triple camera setup at the back with a standard 12MP lens with a focal length of f1.5, a 12MP telephoto lens with a focal length of f2.4 and a 16 super wide-angle lens with a focal length of f1.9. It packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

Even though LG's cameras provide plenty of flexibility for capturing photos, the end result may not be on par with top camera phones like Huawei's P20 Pro, and the latest iPhone XS. The LG V40 ThinQ has AI camera features as well which automatically adjust saturation, shutter speed and other settings to ensure that you shoot the best image.

At the front, there is a combination of standard 8-megapixel camera with f/1.9 aperture and a 5-megapixel wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture. The battery is a 3,300 mAh that can be charged wirelessly.

In addition to the optics, there are also myriad features that make use of the five cameras - these include Cine Shot, Triple Preview, Triple Shot and AI CAM. The wide-angle shot ranges from the 107° ultra-wide lens, through the 78° main lens to the 45° telephoto lens.

There's no confirmed United Kingdom release date just yet but it's likely that LG will be bringing its photo-obsessed flagship to our shores within the next few months.

LG V40 has powered its speakers with Boombox Speaker technology which allows you to boost its low-frequency output. Connectivity options on the LG V40 ThinQ include a 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C 2.0 (3.1 compatible), FM radio and 3.5mm audio jack. But if you're willing to pay $900 to nearly $1,000 for the V40, then you're shopping for a flagship device.

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

In a release detailing the product, the new flagship was shown in grey, black, blue and red colours. It retails in the United States between $ 900 and $ 980 depending on the mobile carrier. However, the company hasn't announced availability for other regions yet. Customers who will pre-order the device will also get a microSD card of 256GB from SanDisk absolutely free.
