The LG V40 will create a storm late summer

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. The latest tells us when we can expect the successor to the V30 to arrive.

It's storming in at the end of summer

Enough with the bad puns. 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.

    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.
