LG Officially Launches V40 ThinQ — It’s Got Five Cameras

LG has officially launched its next flagship smartphone, the V40 ThinQ, which packs in five camera modules and a few other upgrades into a glass and aluminium body.

The device features a 6.4″ OLED display with a resolution of 3120 × 1440, 538 ppi and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It runs Android 8.1, powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset, with 6GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage, with a micro SD card slot that can add an extra 2TB on top of that — take that, Galaxy Note 9!

Incorporated into the aforementioned five-lens camera set-up is a triple-sensor primary camera made up of a 12MP standard lens with optical image stabilisation, a 16MP super-wide lens and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x zoom. Options within the camera software allow users to take photos with each of the lenses individually or using all three at once. Images taken with all three sensors will be stitched together into a short video. Additionally, the dual-lens internal camera features an 8MP standard lens alongside a 5MP wide-angle lens.

The device is IP68 dust- and water-protected, with a 3,300mAh battery that can be charged wirelessly. Connectivity-wise, the V40 supports USB-C 2.0 and Bluetooth 5.0, and it also features NFC capabilities, plus a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It will be available in four colours: Aurora Black, Platinum Grey, Moroccan Blue and Carmine Red.

The V40 ThinQ is available for pre-order now in the US, priced from $900, with devices shipping from October 18th. Details of launch dates and pricing for other territories is yet to be announced, but the company did confirm that individual launch timescales would be revealed in due course.
