  • LG V40 ThinQ Back

It features a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ OLED display with a resolution of 3120×1440, and a notch that increases the aspect ratio to 19.5:9. Sadly, the flagship Android smartphone still runs Android 8.1 Oreo with LG's custom launcher on top. The device comes with the rear-facing fingerprint sensor and includes face unlock feature.

The camera setup on the LG V40 ThinQ is unique, with three rear cameras and two front cameras.

"The pixel size of the main rear camera sensor has been improved by about 40 percent compared to the LG V30". On the V40, the regular cameras has a 78-degree field of view, uses a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/1.5 lens, and has both optical image stabilization and dual phase-detection autofocus.

The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with Adreno 630 GPU for graphical processing.

The LG V40 ThinQ looks very similar to Apple's iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

It's leaked out and has been teased for a while, but LG's V40 ThinQ is official.

But it's the phone's triple-camera setup that is by far the standout feature of the new device.

And he just looks the part of a franchise quarterback. "I've got a lot of respect for him and the way he plays". It's no reason to worry, the Vikings are still really good, and still have stars all over their roster.

The design of the V40 ThinQ is something that LG is proud of, with the company touting its "Silky Blast" process.

The front cameras include an 8MP standard (F1.9 / 1.12μm / 80°) lens and a 5MP Wide (F2.2 / 1.12μm / 90°) lens.

Additionally, there is a Cine Shot mode, which enables users to create cinemagraphs using any of the phone's three cameras. The wide-angle shot ranges from the 107° ultra-wide lens, through the 78° main lens to the 45° telephoto lens.

The LG V40 ThinQ packs a rather humble 3,300mAh battery pack.

The South Korean tech firm explained: "The Triple Shot feature stitches together the images captured with each of the three lenses into a short video file for easy sharing".

The LG V40 ThinQ supports Fast Wireless Charging, a first for LG.

There's no confirmed United Kingdom release date just yet but it's likely that LG will be bringing its photo-obsessed flagship to our shores within the next few months. In the United States the LG V40 is available from October 18, 2018, and prices start at $900. In terms of connectivity, the smartphone offers, 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and USB Type C. The smartphone comes in New Aurora Black, New Platinum Gray, New Moroccan Blue and Carmine Red colour options. The body of the LG V40 ThinQ is also IP68 water resistance and meets the U.S. Department of Defense requirements for durability, passing 14 MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test categories. The India price and availability have not been confirmed by the company yet. If you pre-order the LG V40 ThinQ, you get a DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal and a 256GB microSD card.
