LG V40 ThinQ Launched With Five Cameras, BoomBox Speaker

I comes with a 6.4-inch 19.5:9 QHD+ OLED FullVision Display (3120 x 1440 / 538ppi), up to 128GB UFS 2.1 ROM / microSD (up to 2TB) and is using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip. It runs Android 8.1 (Oreo) with LG UX which is said to be Android 9.0 (Pie). The device also has a rear mounted fingerprint sensor and is backed by a 3300mAh battery with fast and wireless charging support. There are three cameras around back and two more cameras packed into the notch on the front of the phone. A normal 12-megapixel sensor (f/1.5 aperture, 78° angle) has a lower resolution than the one in the G7, but its pixels are 40 percent larger and should, therefore, capture more light.

Caitlin McGarry from Tom's Guide also thinks the Triple Shot mode is "a gimmick", explaining that the LG V40 ThinQ cameras "seem gimmicky instead of high end".

LG V40 ThinQ is finally here. The Mate 20 Pro, meanwhile, is likely to cost at least as much as the V40, but it'll deliver better specs, new features, and a triple main camera. There's a regular, 8-megapixel camera with f/1.9 optics and an 80-degree field of view, paired with a 12-megapixel camera that has f/2.2 optics and a 90-degree field of view.

The LG V40 ThinQ packs a rather humble 3,300mAh battery pack.

It is the first smartphone in the world that lets users take an ultra-wide-angle shot or zoom in extensively, akin to a professional DSLR owing to three cameras on its back. The third sensor deals in the zoom in scenarios via a 12MP telephoto lens with f/2.4. The smartphone also comes with a Triple Shot feature which stitches together the image captured using the three lenses into a short video for the objective of sharing. Other features on the LG V40 ThinQ include BoomBox speaker, 3.5mm headphone jack (yes, worth a mention these days) and 32-bit Quad DAC.

October is shaping up to be chock full of new Android flagships, and today it was LG's turn to show us what it's got.

In the US, the LG V40 ThinQ will launch on October 19th. The smartphone comes with MIL-STD 810G military-grade durability and has IP68 rating which makes it dust and water resistant. WLAN n, Bluetooth 5.0, USB C, NFC and an FM radio are also included as standard. The India price and availability have not been confirmed by the company yet. The handset will arrive in glossy Aurora Black and matte Moroccan Blue color options. Yes, LG is throwing your way a free 256GB card and a DJI OSMO Mobile 2 Gimbal if you preorder quickly, but that's not necessarily a good reason to get the V40 before checking out all the other flagships launching this month.
