Blass has not revealed any information on the specifications of the LG V40. However, it is speculated that it could be arriving as a successor for the LG V30 phone from last year. The LG V30S ThinQ that was launched in February cannot be dubbed as the successor of V30 as both the phones carry similar specs.
The tipster has stated that the LG V40 will be unveiled by late summer or early fall this year. This suggest that the LG V40 may debut at the end of August or early September probably through IFA 2018 tech trade show in Berlin, Germany.
He is of the view that the LG V35 ThinQ that is codenamed as Emma will debut around the same time as G7 ThinQ. The LG V40 is likely to be packed with flagship specs and it could feature the Snapdragon 845. Hence, the phone may sport an iPhone X-like notched display.
The V35 ThinQ is rumored to arrive with an 18:9 aspect ratio supporting 6-inch OLED display. It will be equipped with 16-megapixel dual rear cameras that will bring some AI capabilities. It is also expected to feature 32-bit ESS Sabre 9228 quad DAC. However, there is no information available on its chipset and RAM. Also, the pricing details of the V35 ThinQ are still under the wraps.
