With a week to go for its official unveiling, LG has partly unwrapped the LG V40 ThinQ smartphone today as it released a 30-second video clip teasing the upcoming flagship smartphone in some of its glory. As was rumoured previously, the next V-series smartphone from LG will equip a Penta-camera setup which comprises three cameras at the back and dual cameras on the front.
The teaser didn’t reveal any details about the internals of the phone but LG did confirm that the V40 ThinQ features a 6.4-inch screen with minimal bezels and a comfortable phone to hold on one hand. LG also revealed that the smartphone will offer a soft touch through the sand-blasted surface on the rear panel, which now comes with a reinforced glass that is resistant to scratches, dirt or fingerprint smudges.
There’s metal frame around the edges which looks glossier than the matte-like glass on the back, to imply how solid the phone is. There’s a circular fingerprint sensor at the back which is positioned conventionally below the camera unit.
The highlight of the phone comes through its Penta-lens camera setup which includes a triple-camera for primary imaging. Looking at the sensors, we can expect a standard high megapixel main sensor paired with a zoom lens and a wide-angle lens, a similar setup to the one on the Huawei P20 Pro. The front of the device also sports dual-camera setup with a laser depth sensor and illumination sensor, possibly for another form of authentication through 3D facial recognition.
Lastly, the teaser provides a clear look at the new colour variants of the LG V40 ThinQ which will be available in Carmine Red, Moroccan Blue and Platinum Gray, the first of which looks stunning on its own. With just a week to go for the launch event which is scheduled for October 4, we’ll know more as we approach the official unveiling.
