LG V40 ThinQ Teaser Confirmed Five Cameras & Silky Matte Finish Glass
In the last few years, its share in global Smartphone market has decreased and pressure of competition from arch rival Samsung and new Chinese brands like Oneplus is taking toll on its business. Not willing to call it quits, LG has focused on mid to high end Smartphone segment of late. Its last few flagships failed to live up to the pre release buzz but the company is now ready to unveil the V40 ThinQ – a mid range premium handset. The teasers of the upcoming handset hint at impressive hardware spec and enticing design.
The most noteworthy feature of the upcoming LG V40 ThinQ is a 5 camera setup, as is clear from the teasers. Of late, Samsung has unveiled a camera with 3 lenses at the rear and more companies are expected to follow suit. The company is keen on wooing the imaging conscious buyers who want a mid range premium handset.
Not all details of the LG V40 ThinQ are confirmed but the company says it will have a 6.4-inch display with reinforced glass frame. The front camera and its laser depth sensors are hidden inside a notch. The phone looks a lot like the flagship G7 ThinQ and the notch is mostly hidden. There is a bottom chin but it’s very thin.
The fingerprint sensor sits at the backside and so LG is not hopping on the bandwagon of in-display sensor.
The device has an additional button at side which may be user to summon Google Assistant. Not much is known about the hardware sued inside but industry sources say it will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor and 4 to 6 GB of RAM. Most likely it will ship with Android Pie but LG is tight lipped on the software. The pricing and availability in various markets is still not clear. It may get a late 2018 release.
