It’s finally leak time for smartphones. As October approaches steadily, leaks regarding the LG V40 have started to chime in. Not only that, but our suspicion seems to have been correct all this time. The LG V40 ThinQ would indeed sport a triple camera setup on its back for those crispy shots.
The LG V40 Render Leak – The triple camera dilemma is real
The LG V40 ThinQ has to be one of the most polarizing smartphones of 2018 while we wait for Samsung to brew the Galaxy S10 slated for release next year. The LG V40 is said to pack a triple camera setup on its rear, each serving their own function. However, there’s no word on the fact if LG intends to allow two or more of the cameras to enhance the final image taken by the LG V40.
Based on the LG V40 ThinQ’s teaser, we would speculate that the three camera sensors would serve as standalone shooters rather than combining the data gathered by the camera sensors. Aside from the main camera, the two camera sensors would serve as a telephoto shooter and a wide angle shooter to give you the best from both worlds. It would be great to see LG overthrowing our speculation regarding how they intend to use these multiple cameras. However, it seems unlikely that that would happen based on the teaser they released a while ago.
Now that we have an actual press render of the V40 ThinQ, we’re ready to speculate a few features of the device solely based on the render above. Based off of the render above, the LG V40 ThinQ would most likely pack a 6.3-inch screen. In addition to that, we would derive that the LG V40 ThinQ would come with a few more AI tweaks down the line as well as a stereo speaker setup utilizing the earpiece on top of the device.
What’s impressive to see here is how much LG has finally cut down on the bezels. While they aren’t the first, they definitely have a case on their hands, unless it becomes as deceiving as Apple’s iPhone XR seemed to be at first glance.
If we’re talking about internals, there hasn’t been any major SoC announcement lately. Therefore, we’re pretty sure that the LG V40 ThinQ would come with the usual Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6/8GB RAM and a triple camera setup at its rear. What might catch us off guard may be the introduction of a 512GB variant with the LG V40 given that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Apple iPhone XS Max offer 512GB of internal storage.
LG’s V series of smartphones have been a very important lineup for LG. Not only does the LG V-series of devices represent LG’s stance on making practical choices, but it also showcases what LG has to offer for their upper-range flagship device given how well the LG V10 performed back in 2015.
LG’s definitely the first major OEM to launch a smartphone in October 2018, followed by a number of six other brands revealing their devices throughout October.
