LG V40: Five cameras will make you want it, right?

LG's release strategy is somewhat difficult to follow. Not so long ago, the brand stated that it would release devices only when necessary, but it has several phones in the works that are due for release this year. Next up, the LG V40, which will attempt to woo new fans with a five camera setup.

AndroidPolice has received some information about the LG V40. The successor to the V30 is to receive five cameras. Two cameras face forward and should be used for Face Unlock (and selfies). On the back of the LG V40 there will be three cameras.

It seems relatively certain that there will be the classic LG configuration with a standard and a wide-angle lens. But what is the third camera for? Clearly, a lens with telephoto function would be conceivable, but a sensor for better photos in the dark is also possible. AndroidPolice has not received any reliable details.

The notch will celebrate its V-series debut with the LG V40. Overall, the design will be based on the LG G7 ThinQ. If we consider LG's statements on the subject of displays, the LG V40 should be equipped with an OLED panel. LG named display technology as the most important distinguishing feature between the G and V series. A Snapdragon 845 should also be taken for granted at this point in the year.

If you are looking for a fast LG phone without notch, the LG V35 is the best choice. Let's hope for the LG V40 that LG is planning something special with the camera. The past G and V smartphones had to give way to the competition.

It's storming in at the end of summer

If you're an avid follower of LG, you'll know we're talking about the V40's code name: Storm. A strong name, so LG should deliver a device to match. We know this thanks to reliable leaker Evan Blass, who also gave us some more gossip regarding the release of the brand's lineup this year:

So if you're dying to get your hands on the V40, you will have to wait until the end of summer, or even the beginning of fall and the presentation could be at IFA 2018 in Berlin, considering this is where LG held its event for the release of the V30. If you have your eye on the V35 ThinQ or the G7 ThinQ, they will arrive a little sooner, with the G7 landing May 2.

What else do we know about the V40? Not a lot at this stage, but we can expect improved AI functionality, a feature that was highlighted by LG at MWC this year, as well as the ThinQ name. We'll keep you updated with all the details as they roll in. 

What do you think about LG's upcoming V40 flagship? Leave a comment.

  • Screw camera's..make better antennas for your product..got a brand new v10 and v20 sitting on the shelf collecting dusk because can even make are receive call in my home with a tower 4 miles down the road on Verizon. Had to buy a Samsung product to use cell service..LG your product sucks!!!

  • The only question I have is why was the V35 made an exclusive to one particular carrier? Isn't it bad enough when listed on all carrier's they still have problems with sales? Plus their updates to any of their line is horrendous! Just how good is the OLED display on the V35? Is this the one that Apple has contracted for?

  • Woww...Amazing information

  • Removable batteries can prolong the lifespan of a device, and that's something that no serious company would allow. People just do not take this thing into consideration and prefer trendy design, good luck.

  • Sorry, I'm waiting for the phone with 6 lenses in the back LOL.

    The V series don't have in Brazil.
    I love smartphones with infrared (irblaster) Like v20, G5...
    But... It's (infrared) as abandoned by LG...

    I just hope it has a storm of a removable battery. Then the phone would be a major hit.

    • This feature has never been a strong selling point for any phone. I only hope it doesn't have a notch.

      I beg to differ. A water resistant smartphone is a more usable and demanded feature these days.

        Jens L, Removable battery does not prevent the IP68 rating the Galaxy S5 had both. Also if you have a removable battery you do not need IP68 rating because if you remove the power source the you prevent damage. My Note 4 has been drowned 3 time still going strong. Non removable batteries are all about planed obsolescence and nothing else.

        If both is an option then fine, but removable batteries does just not seem to be a very strong selling point for most smartphone buyers these days. The design choices made for the S5 was made when the market demands and competition looked completley different. But if LG could make it work with removable batteries, wireless fast charging and water resistance all in the same phone that would definetly be uniqe.

      • Well said. Those who feel the need to carry an extra phone battery need a new hobby....seriously!
