With multiple launches slated for the month of October, it is shaping up to be an exciting month. As Huawei, Google, Samsung, and others vie to win over the customers this season, only the best ones will stand out. With the camera being one of the key features customers are drawn to, most bigwigs are capitalizing on it to woo customers. LG is headed in the same direction, as a new leak has revealed that the upcoming LG V40 ThinQ will have no less than five cameras.
LG V40 ThinQ Official Press Renders Showing Five Camera Lenses
Tipster Evan Blass has treated us to some renders via Twitter, which actually look like official press images. Per the renders, LG is surely planning to beat other OEMs to the punch by releasing a phone with five sensors in total. The renders corroborate previous rumors that alleged that the LG the V40 ThinQ will come with a triple camera setup on the back. The renders show that the sensors will be horizontally aligned in the same vein as the LG V30. The circular fingerprint scanner is sandwiched between the camera setup and the V40 ThinQ logo. Even though the press renders have apparently camouflaged the notch, the two front cameras will be housed in the cutout. The renders have been scooped up from AT&T and if the wallpaper is any indication, the phone will start retailing from mid-November.
LG V40 ThinQ: Rumoured Specifications, Features
While the images were not accompanied by a specification sheet, some key features of the device are already known, thanks to the rumor mills. First off, LG implicitly confirmed back in May that the V40 ThinQ will sport an OLED screen. The screen will probably be 6.4 inches with a QHD+ resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone will have small albeit noticeable bezels and a small notch, which means its face detection prowess might not be at the same level as Apple’s Face ID. As mentioned above, the phone will also have a rear mounted fingerprint sensor, which will be backed up by a voice unlock technology.

Coming to the multi-camera system, the rear setup will comprise of two 12MP lenses and one 16MP sensor, whereas the front cameras will be 5MP and 8MP. The camera hardware would reportedly be complemented by intelligent camera functions in the form of Smart CAM. The presence of the Quad DAC chip and Stereo Boombox is expected to elevate the sound experience. The 3.5mm headphone jack will reportedly be present too.
The phone will most likely be underpinned by Qualcomm’s flagship processor, the Snapdragon 845 SoC and flanked by Adreno 630 GPU. It will reportedly have 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage. The device is expected to ship with a 3,300mAh battery and it will be IP68 certified against water and dust.
The power button will be on the right, and as multiple renders have revealed, there will be another button below the volume rockers. It might be a dedicated button to launch the Google Assistant.
LG V40 ThinQ: Expected Launch Date, Price
LG sent out press invites on September 13 for a dedicated event to present the V40 ThinQ in the New York City on October 3. Thanks to the freshly leaked press render, we are guessing that the phone will go on sale in the U.S. on Friday, November 16. The phone will most likely be launched in other locations worldwide soon afterwards.
As the prices of smartphones in general and LG V series, in particular, continue to increase, we can expect the V40 ThinQ to carry a hefty price tag. With the LG V30s ThinQ retailing for Rs. 59, 999 and the LG V35 ThinQ commanding a price of Rs. 60,990, we can expect the V40 ThinQ to cross the Rs. 70,000 threshold.
