It seems that the month of October is promising to be a crazy month for smartphone launches, with the much-leaked Pixel 3 being announced on the 9th with Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro following suit a week later. Today, LG has confirmed that it will first announce its V40 ThinQ flagship on October 3rd in New York, with the phone being unveiled the following day in South Korea.
LG states that the video invitation (above) consists of 10 seconds of animation with the subject photographed four times. After the first regular image, the second shot is zoomed in, the third is taken with a wide-angle lens, and the last one is shot in Portrait Mode. What can we extrapolate from this information? Well, as rumored, it would appear that the LG V40 ThinQ will indeed have three rear cameras; consisting of a standard lens, a super wide-angle lens, and a new, telephoto lens such as what we’ve seen on the Galaxy Note 9 and Huawei’s P20 Pro earlier this year. It’s also likely that there will be a dual camera setup on the front of the phone.
Besides this new triple rear camera setup, the V40 ThinQ is expected to launch running the Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, a 3,300mAh battery, up to 128GB of built-in storage as well as a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, such as what we’ve seen featured on other LG flagship smartphones.
The V40 ThinQ will further add to LG’s somewhat confusing mobile strategy over the last twelve months that already consists of the V30, V30S, V30+ ThinQ, G7 ThinQ, and V35 ThinQ. Are you looking forward to the LG V40 ThinQ launch?
