Leak reveals more info on the LG V40 ThinQ's five cameras
Yes, the LG V40 ThinQ is expected to be unveiled this coming Thursday, October 4th. The phone should hit the market with a total of five cameras, three in back and two in front. LG has always promoted its V series phones as offering an outstanding experience for those who love taking photos. Sunday evening, Evan Blass pushed out a tweet that shows what we can expect from each of the five different cameras on the LG V40 ThinQ.

On back, the three cameras are mounted horizontally. According to a recent rumor, the camera on the right features a 16MP sensor and takes "Standard" pictures. The 12MP middle camera produces "Super-Wide Angle" shots, and the camera on left has an 8MP "Telephoto" lens. In front, we expect to see an 8MP camera for "Standard" selfies, and a second camera that delivers "Wide-Angle" images.

The LG V40 ThinQ could come with a 6.4-inch notched display carrying a 1440 x 3120 QHD+ resolution. That works out to an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform will be under the hood, and we could see the handset sport 8GB of RAM along with 128GB of native storage. A 3300mAh battery is said to be powering the unit.

If you haven't done it yet, circle October 4th on your calendar. LG's decision to unveil the LG V40 ThinQ on that date might explain why Google decided to unveil the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on October 9th. The OG Pixel models and the Pixel 2 models were introduced on October 4th 2016 and October 4th 2017, respectively.

Again it will be a great phone with less recognition. People here will talk good about this phone but very less one will buy it in comparison

Blame them, they're really lazy to advertise their product. They should make better ads and show it everywhere, endorse it in movies and TV shows, or make Captain Marvel Edition or something else..

Because iPhone X is only fullHD resolution. Such a low resolution for a flagship.

Yeah, I hate to say, but 3300 just isn't big enough for the 845. should have been at least 3700. The Oneplus 6t is looking better and better.

I really hope that the notch trend will die in 2018 and not carried over to 2019. Fuick all the oems who are copying whatever idiotic trend apple throws at their fans including smaller batteries and speaking of that, the 3300mah battery on the v40 will be abysmal at best.

The difference between LG and HTC, even when both mobile division is on the red is that HTC knows how to make great phones. LG on the other hand is just hopeless.

The event is scheduled for 5PM on October 3rd I thought. Anyway I was expecting a 12mp standard lens sensor with bigger pixel size so I'm wondering which leak is correct. Anyway I'm excited for this as it will be my next phone. I can't wait.

Here are my two cents : The cameras of LG have always been good. Not the very best, but definitely among top 5 every year with their flagships. Adding 5 cameras gives this phone unmatched versatility. Not that Pixels are bad or anything, in fact they are the best of the best, but there are some occasions where you just want to capture the entire landscape in a single shot ( people using portrait mode here look like idiots, trying to rotate slowly because their phone says “ too fast ! “ or have horrible stitching artifacts because something the frame was moving). Other times, you want to zoom in to something because you cannot get physically any closer. Perhaps some animal at a zoo. Here the versatility is much more useful than a few missing pixels here/ there. If these 5 cameras are any good , I would rate this higher in camera department than any other flagship. I am sure the 16 MP would be OIS enabled , and hopefully have variable aperture or atleast a fast f/1.6 lens.

I disagree them being top 5 with their flagships. Top 10 perhaps. They like putting mediocre camera sensors. The main camera on the G7 is the same Sony IMX sensor used in the HTC U Play and LG fans are angry whenever the camera gets bad reviews.

This is right, I tried out the LG V35 and the detail was worse than the LG G5. The software was very good, but to compensate for the lack of detail, the pictures ended up looking more like water color images. It is a shame as the V35 would have other wise been perfect for me, but I did not want to pay more for interior camera hardware.

Actually top three if you know how to use manual mode. For those of us that do, pictures have been amazing and much more versatile than a single lens setup despite the Pixels well deserved reputation.

Yeah LG’s manual mode is pretty great . If I am not mistaken, their manual video options are currently unmatched.

Yes that is the problem with LG. Using cheap sensors and depending on software. I count Samsung, Apple , Huawei , OnePlus and Sony above LG in camera list. Who else was in your list that does better than LG ?

I still use my V20 as the design for the V30 was not to my liking. The V40 should obviously be the better phone but again the design of it displeases me. Same glass on glass body, like so many other 2018 models, with a horrendous notch to boot. I miss the original V series, the V10 with metal bars at the side and the textured back and the V20 with it's all metal casing. Original design ideas that stood out amongst the crowd. I bought both of them. Then LG became a "me too" company and almost all originality went out the door. Sigh. I'm sure this will be a great 2018 phone with great 2018 specs, but with no stand out feature to differentiate it, it will simply be lost in the sea of other 2018 devices of common design.

My OCD is wanting the front speaker in the middle and the cameras on each side.

This phone makers are getting out of hand with all these cameras

The G5 camera-wise owns all LG phones to date because of its superior sensor. I admit my new V35 doesn't come close without the Gcam HDR+ port app which is pretty much like cheating to compare the two directly.
