LG V40 ThinQ with 5 cameras, Snapdragon 845 SoC launched: Price, specifications

The media invitation for the LG V40 ThinQ announced that LG would announce the smartphone at the NY event at 5 PM EDT (2:30 am IST) on October 3 and on the next day at the Science Park in Seoul's Magok district at 10 am KST (6:40 am IST).

The V40's design features a smooth matte glass finish which is a result of LG's proprietary Silky Blast process, which etches the tempered glass back with microscopic pits. There is no word on when the device will arrive in India. Nearly all the smartphone in 20188 focuses on AI engine and LG V40 is no exception. And much like its peers, it has all the bells and whistles that one would expect off a flagship device, which includes a Snapdragon 845 chipset mated to a 6 GB RAM. It will come in 6 GB and 8 GB RAM options.

Under the hood of the LG V40 is the high-end hardware we expected. The results don't look like they were shot on a DSLR, which has become my bar for an expensive camera phone. The Dual Phase Detection Autofocus enables automatic focusing that's 50 percent faster, and the f/1.5 aperture allows the LG V40 ThinQ to have greater depth of field, half the shutter lag, and a "significantly faster" burst mode. However, LG is still sticking to its backend Fingerprint sensors for the smartphone, unlike its potential rivals. The Full Vision display has support for HDR 10 playback, and it has a notch on the top similar to the G7.

Since the two companies first announced their partnership in December 2017, Meridian Audio has already had a hand in tuning various LG soundbars and wireless speakers. Its all cameras on the front and the rear side supports portrait mode.

If you still can't choose the right camera, there is also a Triple Shot feature. The smartphone has 5 cameras; three on the back and two front cameras.

Keylor Navas: Cristiano Ronaldo set the bar very high, that's no secret
The Russian outfit beat the reigning champions 1-0 despite Los Blancos having won the competition for the previous three seasons. Everton loanee Nikola Vlasic scored the only goal of the game early on after a awful back pass from Toni Kroos.

Camera section is the main highlighted point of the phone.

Unlike other makers' flagship phones, which normally have a dual-lens camera and a single-lens front-facing camera, V40 has a triple-lens rear camera and dual-lens front camera.

According to Business Insider, LG V40 ThinQ is perhaps the first bezel-less edge-to-edge Android handset that can be perfectly matched with Apple latest range of iPhones. The LG V40 ThinQ goes on sale starting October 18th and will be retailing for $980 in the US. The price is a bit high but not exactly a surprise since premium phones continue to get more and more expensive. However, this can only be confirmed as soon as LG releases any official statement on this.
