The South Korean smartphone giant, LG, is undoubtedly prepping up for the launch of two new smartphones: the flagship LG V40 ThinQ and the mid-range Q9. We had exclusively revealed the first render of the V40 in August this year, giving you a glimpse of the design of the handset. The phone even received its GCF and NRR certifications, which basically ensures the quality of the device, hinting that its launch is not too far away.

Well, we have now discovered that both the V40 ThinQ and Q9 have gained FCC certification in the US. There are no details mentioned about these devices in the document except its FCC ID and model number.

LG V40 ThinQ and Q9: Features and Specifications

If we go by the earlier rumours, the V40 ThinQ is supposed to feature either a 6.0-inch or 6.5-inch P-OLED display with Quad HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Underneath, there’s no doubt that the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC, featuring the Adreno 630 GPU. It might pack 6GB of RAM, along with either 128GB or 256GB storage options. On the software side, we will presumably see this flagship phone running Android 9 Pie out of the box.

As far as the imaging of the handset goes, it will feature a triple camera setup with the primary sensor being of 12MP resolution, secondary of 16MP resolution, and the third one of 12MP resolution. The combination of the trio eventually will offer PDAF, OIS, 4K video recording, 2X optical zoom. At the front, the smartphone might sport an 8MP+5MP camera for selfies and video calling purpose. As per the recent detailed report, the phone will measure 158.7×75.8×7.79mm and weigh around 169 grams.

Moving onto the LG Q9, it is supposed to flaunt at least a 6.2 inches IPS LCD display that might have a Full HD+ resolution. Powering the device could be an octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC, which will be a significant upgrade compared to Snapdragon 450 which was seen in last year’s Q8. The phone might ship in with 4GB of RAM, along with 32GB and 64GB storage options respectively.

A 3500mAh battery may be integrated into the device which will run on Android 8.1 Oreo equipped device. The Q9 has also received the Bluetooth SIG certification on September 10, that was revealed that it will feature Bluetooth v5.0. Now that the V40 ThinQ and the Q9 have started receiving the multiple certifications, their official launches don’t seem to be too far long.
