The new LG V40 ThinQ is the second flagship device launched by LG this year. It is pretty similar to the LG G7 in terms of specifications and design, but performs a monster leap in the camera department. The smartphone has 5 cameras; three on the back and two front cameras.
The camera setup on the LG V40 ThinQ is unique, with three rear cameras and two front cameras. The three rear cameras are actually three different cameras and not just three sensors. This means that each camera produces a different picture, of varying size and quality.
The setup features a standard 12 MP camera, which is the primary camera. This has a f/1.5 aperture and a pixel size of 1.4 micron. This is a larger pixel size than the LG G7, and will offer an improved camera performance. Next up, it has a super wide 16 MP camera with a f/1.9 aperture and a 107 degree field of view. Along with this, there is a 12 MP telephoto camera and offers 2x the zoom capability over a regular lens.
The three different cameras provide different images, as mentioned before and LG has incorporated features that really make this setup useful. The device has a’triple preview’ feature which shows you a live preview from all the three cameras, simultaneously. With this, you can choose as to which camera would be the best option for that particular setting. The smartphone also has a ‘triple shot’ feature which lets you take the same image from all the three cameras, without having to switch from one camera to another. Interestingly, it also saves a GIF transition between the shots along with the three individual images.
The camera also has a cine shot feature which lets you animate a certain part of your image, to make it more interesting. The LG V40 ThinQ has AI camera features as well which automatically adjust saturation, shutter speed and other settings to ensure that you shoot the best image. The camera also has inbuilt Google lens functionality.
The LG V40 ThinQ has a 6.4 inch, OLED display. It has a resolution of 3120 x 1440 px, a 19:5:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 537 ppi. The screen has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and an always-on display.
It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with an Octa Core CPU. It has the Adreno 630 GPU. the device has 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of inbuilt storage which is expandable upto 512 GB. The LG V40 ThinQ has Boombox speakers and a 32-bit quad DAC. It has DTS X Surround Sound and a headphone jack as well.
The device has an IP68 water and dust resistance rating and supports wireless charging. The LG V40 ThinQ runs Android Oreo out of the box and has a 3,300 mAh battery. The device also has a dedicated Google Assistant Button.
