Get ready, LG is ready to drop yet another flagship with the V40 ThinQ

In case you haven’t had your fill of LG flagships in the past 12 months, LG is ready to drop their refreshed V40 ThinQ by the end of the year. You can expect their newest high-end smartphone in October, giving some space between that and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9.

These reports also suggest that the phone’s launch will head off Apple’s latest iPhone, which is rumored to launch in late October. I don’t know if getting sandwiched by the two giants of the smartphone world is a good idea, but hey, you do you, LG.

We can expect a full announcement at IFA later this year where LG will undoubtedly show off more AI-focused features and hopefully a continued trend of slick, if uninspired, designs. Other rumors have claimed that we’ll see a triple camera system on the V40, which is something we won’t be seeing on the Galaxy Note 9.

We haven’t really had a chance to hear much about the V40 just yet since the V30S was released barely two months ago, but you can expect the rumor mill to pick up speed as we get closer to IFA. Keep your ears out, and we’ll keep you posted.

    Hopefully, they resolve their screen issues. And keep the price at $700.

    As a show of good faith after the boot loop debacle, they should follow Samsung’s lead where they offered a discount to owners of the ill-fated Note7 when the Note8 was launched. I have an LG V20 which has served me well for 2 years, but when it came time to upgrade I went with the Note8. I figured since LG had ceased making phones with features that made them stand apart from the competition (swappable batteries, IR blaster, etc.) and be more Samsung-like, might as well cut out the middle man and get a Samsung device. Go back to your roots LG, find your niche and customers old and new will find you.
