LG V40 ThinQ leaked press renders reveal a total of five cameras, display notch

It appears that the notch is here to stay and those who don't like it should reconcile to the idea that such a feature is now taking into consideration by many handset manufacturers as means to boost sales of their products. Thankfully, there are many new top-tier phones out there that come without a notch, so there are plenty of choices to choose from.

LG's upcoming high-end smartphone, the V40 ThinQ proudly wears its notch at the top of the display, which isn't really surprising considering the recent developments in the industry. More interesting is the fact that LG will follow another trend – that of having triple rear cameras on a phone.

The pictures allegedly showing off the LG V40 ThinQ from all angles confirm the device will actually feature a triple camera on the back and dual cameras on the front. Unlike the Mate 20 that has the camera island in the form of a square, the V40 ThinQ adopts a more traditional form factor and has all camera lined up horizontally.

Also, we can see that there's a small LED flash at the right of the camera row and a circular fingerprint sensor below. The phone looks pretty “edgy” with very slim bezels aside from the top part. Another important factor that weighs heavily when choosing a smartphone is the presence of a 3.5mm audio jack.

Well, it looks like LG has decided to keep the 3.5mm audio jack, and added a USB Type-C port for charging and connectivity purposes. The rest of the phone's specs are still a mystery, but we expect Snapdragon 845, P-OLED display and Android 9 Pie (maybe). One other thing that's worth noting is the date displayed on the phone's screen, November 16, might coincide with the date the phone will be unveiled.

All LGs after G6 at least have great digitizers. Therefore, you can use any active stylus with great results. I have bought two and both work flawlessly, more or less like the S-pen of my old note 4.

shame the Pixel won't look like this. I just Picked up a Note 9 (should be here in a moment hopefully, come on fedex), but this looks interesting. I'll probably pick one up around month 3 when the prices drop and if I have gotten tired of the Note 9 (doubts this will happen)

And dear god, it'll probably have a 3000 mah battery. Call me when LG starts taking battery life seriously...

Take a look at their V30. It is LG best smartphone with the best battery life. It even beat out Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ( Snapdragon edition ). Take a look at phone arena LG V30 battery life chart - over 9 hours. Go on to YouTube & search V30 battery test & you will see it beating out almost all if not all last year flagships from android & apple even though it has a 3300mah battery. It's call battery optimisation.

This is clearly a photoshopped V30.

When you hide the notch the top bezel is thicker than on the V30.

My OCD is wanting the speaker grill in the front to be in between the cameras and centered, but overall it looks like a pretty solid device.

Assuming this is accurate I like the fact they put a small gap between the camera lenses and the fingerprint sensor. Too bad the note 9 didn't do that.

Yeah, but that gap ruins the battery size.

First of all this looks great. Second LG has to figure out how to get their release timing right. Launching their device after everybody else has had their shot is just a bad idea. I really don't want to wait until October-November to get the V40 even though it's at the top of my list. And after I see the notchless Pixel 3 I just might not wait and settle for wide angle photography via Moment lens.

And hardly one update over lifespan of the phone. Absolete software from the start.

The G6, V20 has been updated to 8.0 Oreo with numerous security patches & updates. The V30 & G7 will be updated to Pie 9.0 very soon & they also have numerous security patches & updates from LG themselves. But some LG phones are carrier lock meaning only the carrier ( t-mobile / At&T) are the ones pushing out the updates. If they don't want to push a update blame them not LG. LG did everything they could to make sure the carrier updated their devices but is the carrier who has the authority to make the update to your phone.

Carrier free phones in Europe, in particular v30 were waiting for update very very long time. Don't have to go far 1+6 has brillaint track of updates for latest flagships. LG is probably worst of the pack.

There are two kind of phone manufacturers. One that is not dependent on carrier to push / sell their devices ( apple / oneplus ) while the other is Carrier dependent to help them ( LG / Samsung) to sell their phone ( that's why got those hideous T-mobile logo at the back of the phones). Oneplus phone does not have a specific carrier lock down phone meaning it can be use with either carrier while LG / Samsung need these special carrier phone to help them boost sales drive.

Both phones are sold here in uk through carriers though but 1+6 still exceptionaly good with updates. What do you think stop LG from being so giveng the same conditions? It's o2 network.

Looking nice, hope the battery is at least 4000 mAh(only way I can forgive the notch)

Well, if this is to be believed, I'm done with smart phones for 2018. I held out on the Note 9 because I wanted to see what LG was doing with the V40. This is what I get. Notched garbage. I'll keep my Note 8 and V20. The Note 9 is good but just not enough and I refuse to have a notched device as my primary mobile device. Hopefully 2019. Phone design will come to its damn senses and we can have some variety with our devices.

LG, you have failed me with the notch. I don't want screen burn in and this phone would have been near to perfect if it had no notch.
