    LG V40 ThinQ specifications

    The LG V40 ThinQ comes with a 6.4-inch FullVision OLED display (HDR 10) with 2K or QHD+ resolution protected by 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 is the chipset that powers the smartphone with 6 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64 GB internal storage with a micro SD card slot, which can accept SD cards up to 256 GB.

    To talk about the elephant in the room, the LG V40 ThinQ has a triple camera setup on the back and a dual camera set up on the front (which was previously leaked). The primary camera setup has a 2MP sensor with 1.4µm pixels with an f/1.5 aperture with dual-pixel autofocus technology. There is a secondary 12 MP telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture and tertiary 16 MP wide-angle lens with 128-degree field of view.

    The triple camera can be used all together to create a video or a GIF by combining the images shot by the different lens. This smartphone is capable of producing HDR quality 4K videos and 4K videos @ 60fps as well. Similarly, the LG V40 ThinQ can also record slow-motion video @ 240 frames per second in 1080p resolution.

    On the front, the phone has an 8 MP primary sensor with an f/1.9 aperture and 80-degree field of view with a 5 MP secondary sensor with an f/2.4 aperture with a 90-degree field of view. The front-facing cameras can offer features like studio lighting and portrait mode.

    LG V40 ThinQ is one of the few flagship smartphones, which still retains the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Besides, the smartphone also comes with a QuadDAC to enhance the audio output via the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Just like the last generation LG V series smartphones, the V40 ThinQ is water and dust resistant with IP68 certification along with MIL-STD-810G certification. The smartphone comes with a 3300 mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 capability via USB type C port and Qi-based wireless charging as well.

    In terms of software experience, the smartphone comes with Android 8.1 Oreo with custom LG skin on top. The device will be updated to Android 9 Pie in the near future.
