An LG V40 (codenamed Storm) is seemingly in the making
LG already announced a new V-series smartphone this year - the V30S ThinQ
, pictured above - so one may be wondering if the company has any other new handset from this series to reveal in 2018. Well, it looks like it has one.
According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), an LG V40 is in the making, and it's codenamed Storm. The new phone should be a true successor to last year's V30
- which the V30S ThinQ
certainly isn't, as it's pretty much the same device (albeit with new AI-powered software tricks, and more memory).
Unfortunately, at this time, apart from its name and codename, we don't really know anything about the LG V40. What we do
know is that, before announcing the V40, LG will launch a G7 ThinQ
- this new G-series handset will be officially unveiled in early May
, and could go on sale shortly after that.
Recently leaked images have shown that the LG G7 ThinQ should bring a notch
(à la iPhone X
), which leads us to assume that the LG V40 might also make use of this controversial design element. Of course, it's a bit too early to speculate about this.
We don't expect the LG V40 to be introduced before August-September, and a lot can happen by then. We'll just have to wait and see if this new V40 can take the smartphone market by... storm.
