LG has been teasing fans with little info on the much-anticipated flagship device. MSP Gear also posted the first released, credible images of the LG V40 around last month and now we have more detailed info on the camera set up. Apart from boasting five incredible cameras on the smartphone, the LG V40 ThinQ has each camera for a different function, thus, creating a unique use for each of them.
LG V40 ThinQ – Five Cameras, Five Unique Functions
It’s not an everyday occurrence to see five cameras on a smartphone, irrespective of it being a flagship or not. Yes, we already have smartphones such as the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, although, with this LG device, each of those five cameras has a unique function to it.
At the rear end, the LG V40 boasts a 16MP+13MP+8MP setup. The 16MP standard lens provides with regular photos, with depth effect and other typical features. The 13MP is a super-wide zoom lens, allowing users to capture a full frame with their photos. The third 8MP camera is a telephoto Zoom lens with the reported feature of lossless zoom with photos.
On to the front side of the LG V40, the smartphone has an 8MP + 5MP dual camera setup and here as well, the lenses carry unique features. The primary 8MP lens provides with standard selfies, while the secondary 5MP lens allows wide-angle photos to be clicked. All this looks incredible from LG, while we are curious enough to see how well these cameras can deliver.
Then there’s the Cine Shot feature with the cameras. In the Cine Shot feature, the camera lets users create cinema-like graphs. These are GIFs, with only a specific part of the image moving, while the rest remains still. Its more like a blend between a picture and a video.
