LG Electronics is looking to woo the fans of mobile photography with the announcement of LG V40 ThinQ that boasts of Penta-camera setup (3 at the back plus 2 in the front). This isn’t the first time LG finds itself ahead of the pack because, if you remember, it was the first to launch a dual-camera phone back in 2015.
The rear camera is composed of three sensors: one each of the standard (12MP), telephoto (16MP), and ultra-wide angle (12MP). The front camera is composed of a standard 8MP and a wide-angle 5MP sensor.
The camera is well supported by LG’s AI technology which taps into the phone’s resources to capture the best possible shot under any condition. There are a host of other new features like 3D Light effect, Makeup Pro, AR Emoji etcetera that make capturing and editing photos from the phone a truly rewarding experience. Moreover, LG has also collaborated with Meridian, a premium British audio systems brand well known for its home cinemas as well as automobile audio systems, to provide better audio experience with the LG V40.
The phone comes with a vivid 6.4″ QHD+ (3120 x 1440 pixels) OLED screen that features a — you guessed it — notch.
Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor (current flagship chipset that powers the Galaxy S9 and others, and will power the Pixel 3), 6GB RAM, 64GB internal memory and 3300mAh battery, it comes with an array of features like fingerprint sensor, face-recognition, remote voice recognition, quick charge, wireless charge and so on.
On the OS front, it comes out of the box with Android Oreo 8.1 with Android Pie update in the works. IP68 certificate makes it both dust and water-resistant.
Available in New Platinum Grey, New Moroccan Blue, and Carmine Red colors.
