LG’s Upcoming V40 ThinQ Leaks in New Renders

LG is expected to unveil yet another entry in its V series of smartphones later this year, and today we’re getting our first glimpse at the device. Via MySmartPrice, new renders have leaked of the upcoming V40 ThinQ which depict the body of the device, five cameras and all.

As you can see, the V40 will look largely similar to the V30 and G7 with a larger display, a notch, and a glass build. The bottom will house a USB-C port and a headphone jack along with, presumably, a Boombox speaker. There’s also a side-mounted power button and a Google Assistant key, two features we previously saw with the G7.

On the back sits not one, not two, but three cameras lined up across the top which will give the handset unique capabilities we haven’t seen in an LG phone. We’re not sure what those capabilities will be, but we’re assuming something like a main 20MP shooter, a wide-angle 16MP lens, and a telephoto 13MP camera. Meanwhile, dual front-facing cameras will likely give users portrait mode selfies, better 3D face recognition, and, hopefully, a wide-angle option for group selfies.


AS far as specs go, previous reports indicate the V40 will come with a 3120×1440 P-OLED display, a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, a 3300mAh battery, Android Oreo, and wireless charging. MySmartPrice says the phone will be unveiled this November, while other reports suggest an October launch date. Therefore, it’s unclear exactly when we can expect LG to announce the device, but we’ll, of course, keep you updated.
