LG V40 ThinQ Variants and Expected Price in India
Internationally, the LG V40 ThinQ is available in two variants. The base model has 64GB of storage, and the other one has 128GB of storage. The LG V40 ThinQ listing on Amazon India says the device will have up to 128GB of storage, which indicates that the device will be available in 64GB as well as 128GB storage variants in India.
In the USA, the LG V40 ThinQ retails for $949.99 for the 64GB storage variant, which converts to approximately INR 67,500. We guess that, in India, the device will launch with a price tag of INR 69,999. Pricing it any higher would make it costlier than the Galaxy Note 9, and at the point, people would simply choose the latter. Hence, I don’t think LG might price the V40 Thin! Any higher than INR 69,999.
