LG V40 ThinQ, a smartphone with the rumoured triple camera setup, is now gaining credibility. The successor to LG V35 ThinQ has leaked in the form of 3D renders, and interestingly, there’s a 360-degree video of the smartphone as well.
We at MSP Gear were the first to offer our readers clear press renders of the LG V40 ThinQ. The images of the smartphone clearly indicated that it would come with all the trending smartphone features, including a notched screen and a triple-camera setup on its rear. The smartphone follows the rather humble success of the LG G7 ThinQ and the LG V35 ThinQ. The LG smartphones were released in May 2018 and didn’t do well in the market.
Smartphone enthusiasts have pegged the rather low success rate of the devices to their less than stellar cameras. Apparently, the devices couldn’t compete with the likes of the Apple iPhone X, Huawei P20 Pro, etc in the imaging department. Hence, the South Korean smartphone brand could have invested heavily in the design and development of the LG V40 ThinQ. Previous reports and the just leaked renders of the device lend credibility to the existence and design architecture of the smartphone.
LG V40 ThinQ: 360-degree Video Reveal Full Design, Important Features
Earlier reports about the LG V40 ThinQ indicated the smartphone will feature a glass back with a mirrored finish. The video confirms the smartphone will feature triple-camera setup with a single-LED flash. The LG and V40 ThinQ branding logos, and a circular fingerprint reader will accompany the rear camera sensors. Incidentally, LG has arranged the camera sensors and the fingerprint scanner symmetrically.
The LG V40 reportedly seen in the renders is apparently based on factory CAD blueprints. Hence they could be accurate and relevant. According to the report, the smartphone sports a 6.3-inch display.
The renders also confirm the presence of the notched display, a reversible USB Type-C port, and the humble 3.5mm headphone jack. Also, the smartphone will have a speaker at the bottom. Meanwhile, the notch seems to include an advanced Face Detection sensor, alongside two front-facing camera sensors. The video also hints LG has managed to place the antenna lines in a very discreet manner.
The right side of the LG V40 ThinQ appears to have the power button, while the left side has the volume rocker. Interestingly, just below the volume control, there’s another button, which could summon a virtual assistant or serve as a dedicated camera switch.
LG V40 ThinQ: Expected Specifications, Features
The LG V40 ThinQ has not officially launched or even acknowledged by the South Korean smartphone brand. Hence, there’s very little information about the smartphone. But going by its predecessors, the V40 ThinQ could feature a P-OLED screen with curved edges. The 6.3-inch screen could sport at least Full HD+ resolution or even higher, with a good screen to body ratio due to the presence of the notch.
The flagship-class LG smartphone will probably have Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 6GB or even 8GB of RAM. LG usually packs ample internal memory in its smartphones, and the V40 ThinQ should not be an exception.
Besides the trend-setting triple camera unit, the smartphone could run Android 9 Pie out of the box. As the smartphone could launch late this year, LG may have the time to fine-tune and install the latest version of the Android operating system on the device. The V40 ThinQ reportedly measures 158.8 x 75.8 x 7.8 mm. In other words, it is a rather taller and wider smartphone.
LG V40 ThinQ: Launch Date, Pricing
According to the previously leaked LG V40 ThinQ’s press render, the upcoming smartphone will launch on November 16, 2018. Interestingly, the day is a Friday, as mentioned on the screen. However, launch dates can change and that has happened in the past.
As for the pricing, the LG V40 ThinQ is certainly a flagship-class smartphone and will command a relatively higher price. We at MSP Gear will certainly update our readers with any new information about the LG smartphone.
