Earlier this year, LG launched two smartphones — LG V30S ThinQ and LG V35 ThinQ as the company’s flagship smartphones. Now, the company is expected to launch the next-generation LG V-series flagship — LG V40 ThinQ later this year.
This development hints that after LG V40 ThinQ, there will be five more smartphones in the LG V-series as the company has now registered a trademark for LG V90 moniker in Mexico. Currently, there’s no more information available regarding the company’s future plan for the V-series smartphones.
Earlier, the South Korea-based company had said that instead of launching a flagship smartphone every year, it’ll launch new smartphone when it deems necessary. However, it is expected to launch the V40 ThinQ this fall.
The upcoming flagship smartphone is expected to come with an OLED display with over 90 percent screen-to-body ratio and a notched display that users can hide. Further, the device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and will come with the company’s proprietary Quad DAC, and a dedicated Google Assistant button.
Interestingly, the LG V40 ThinQ is expected to arrive with five cameras out of which three will be placed on the back panel. The triple camera setup is expected to include 20-megapixel, 16-megapixel, and 13-megapixel sensors. The device is said to feature a super wide-angle lens and a super-telephoto lens.
There’ll be two cameras on the front for 3D face scanning for the advanced facial recognition feature, similar to what we’ve seen on Apple iPhone X, Oppo Find X and Xiaomi’s Mi 8. The phone is also expected to pack 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
The phone will run Android P operating system out-of-the-box with a custom interface on top. According to the reports, LG is expected to announce the LG V40 ThinQ in September and could start selling the device in October.
