LG V40 ThinQ Hands On

07 October 2018

The V40 ThinQ is LG's new flagship. But it's not just any old smartphone. The third camera is specifically for this objective. At the back, there is a standard lens, a super-wide angle sensor and a telephoto sensor. The phone is capable to cover 3x worth of optical zoom.

The phone has a 6.4-inch display, which is pretty large when compared to previous releases by the company. But V40's camera module is unique. Small notch means you have more space for notifications. It may have 90% screen-to-body ratio.

The V40 ThinQ is also created to withstand dust and water according to IP68 standards as well as MIL-ST-810G certification.

Due to minimizing the chin of the phone, the fingerprint sensor is on the back.

The V40 also includes a DTS:X 3D Surround Sound mode in an attempt to deliver a more spacious and immersive sound to the listener.

The display of V40 is P-OLED with 6.4-inches screen. Capacity of built-in storage of 64 GB. The handset's storage is further expandable upto 2TB via microSD card.

The key selling point of V40 is its five cameras.

LG is always looking to innovate the smartphone industry, but no one expected that 2018 would be the year when LG launches the world's first smartphone that features a five-camera setup.

The main camera is 3-axis OIS, PDAF, and laser autofocus as well.

The back-facing module consists of a standard 12MP lens + telephoto 12MP lens + super-wide-angle 16MP lens. All three cameras offer HDR video recording, while the maximum resolution at which the cameras record is 4K 60 fps.

LG said it has conducted a survey to find what customers truly want and found out that cameras and social media apps are the most frequently used features on smartphones. This allows the company to gain different effects from the camera. The other two lenses are of a 16-MP secondary one with a wide-angle capturing ability and another 12-MP lens with an f2.4 aperture. These two lenses are sure to give you some great quality selfies through features like studio lighting, dark background or portrait modes. Also, the camera can record slo-mo 1080p videos at 240 fps. It runs on LG UX, which is based on the latest Android operating system: Android 8.1. The smartphone comes backed with 3,300 mAh which is higher than G7 ThinQ yet with an OLED panel, you might need to keep a tab on the battery life and yes, LG V40 ThinQ supports wireless charging along with usual cable-backed charging.

Both devices have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 LE and a USB Type-C port. The Aurora Black variant has a polished finish, while the Moroccan Blue has a sandblasted look, thanks to the Silky Blast process that micro-etches the glass for a matte finish. It will go on sale in the country starting October 18. We'll let you know when more information surfaces about this smartphone.
