LG V40 ThinQ (LM-V405UA) gets GCF certification

LG is planning to launch the V40 in the domestic Korean market on October 5 as per reports


We are well aware of the fact that LG is working towards the launch of the V30/V35 successor, in the form of the LG V40 ThinQ. A few weeks ago, we exclusively had given you the first glimpse of the handset, as such how the phone might look. Later on, as the days passed, we also had obtained seen the CAD renders in 5K by Slashleaks. Well, we now have discovered that the LG V40 has received the GCF certificate. The Global Certification Forum mentions the codename of the V40 as Storm Plus along with the model number as LM-V405UA. The handset has received the certificate on September 6, if we have a look at the image below.Going ahead with the details revealed by GCF, we can see that the certification mentions the 2G/3G and 4G bands the device might work on. And that’s only the information as the codename, model number, and connectivity band we can see in the certificate. As far as the other details are concerned about the handset’s features, it might sport a 6.5-inch P-OLED display with Quad HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Furthermore, the phone might be powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset clocked at 2.8 GHz with an Adreno 630 GPU. It may pack 6GB of RAM, and might ship in with either 64GB and 128GB internal storage options respectively. As we had seen last year that the V-series device came with the latest software out of the box, we can even expect the V40 even to boot initially Android 9 Pie based company’s LG UX.

In terms of imaging, the V40 will feature a triple-camera setup with a very small bump. Rumours hints that this trio should consist of 12MP+16MP+12MP sensors, that might offer 2X optical zoom. For selfies and video calling, the smartphone is expected to sport a dual 8MP+5MP camera. The device is going to have a V40 ThinQ branding logos at the rear, and a circular fingerprint reader.

Examing the renders that we had revealed in the past, it had mentioned the date November 16. Considering this remark, we had expected the phone’s launch to be on November 16 itself. However, a few days ago, we had seen ETNews claiming that LG is planning to launch the V40 in the domestic Korean market on October 5, with its global debut happening in mid-September. As the days pass, we should learn more details regarding this handset, and as such when is LG planning to launch the smartphone officially.
