Latest LG V40 ThinQ spec sheet reveals variant with 8GB of RAM

Latest LG V40 ThinQ spec sheet reveals variant with 8GB of RAM
Alleged LG V40 ThinQ render

In two weeks’ time, when LG unveils the V40 ThinQ, multiple different device storage configurations are set to be announced. According to sources, the base model will ship with 6GB of RAM, and if a new leak is accurate, the range-topping one may boast 8GB of RAM instead.

Alongside this RAM count, consumers can expect to see 128GB of internal storage which will presumably be expandable. Additionally, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will unsurprisingly be present, as will a 3,300mAh battery. This means that no internal upgrades have been made other than the increase in RAM when compared to the V35 ThinQ.

The major details that differentiate the V40 ThinQ are actually on the external side of things. Starting off with the display, it has grown to 6.4-inches in size and has controversially gained a notch in the process. While this isn’t home to any Face ID-like tech, it does house an in-ear speaker and two front-facing cameras of 8-megapixels and 5-megapixels in resolution respectively. When it comes to the rear, the dual-camera setup on LG’s previous flagships has been expanded in order to incorporate a third. This means that there will be a main 16-megapixel sensor, a second 12-megapixel one with a wide-angle lens, and a third 8-megapixel camera complete with a telephoto lens.

LG’s next flagship is expected to go on sale in the second half of October following its announcement in the first week. Unfortunately, at this moment in time, it’s unclear how LG will position it against the device against the competition.

Huh. Here you are, but yet you'll b*tch and moan about Android trolls in Apple articles.

I've had several of the last LG phones (every V and G model since the V20) and I've loved every one of them. To me, the Samsung models are a no-go because of the display. And I REALLY love the DAC in the latest 2 LG phones I've had (V30 and G6). My wife and I are both getting the V40 when it's released.

I also have lg G6 and v35 thinQ. There phones are really good for the price. But I think they should consider using bigger batteries in their phones.

I use LG V30 for almost a year now and there are so many things that could be done better. LG is a good manufacturer, but still, you are trading one compromise for another. Not to mention V40 has a notch, so that disqualifies it in a first place.

Why buy this when the POCOPHONE F1 offers all the above specs for just $300?? This is how Android OEMs kill themselves and handover the market to Apple. They devalue

My V20 is laggy! That's why I haven't touched it. Hopefully, oreo will take care of that lag.

I have the LG V30 and also love it. There are a few things that are annoying though. 1) front camera is very very bad even when using the gcam app on xda. 2)Back camera is ok but I want it on samsung level. Especially the shutter speed. 3)back camera glass scratches easily. We need sapphire glass on the lens cover.

The first camera with the trifecta Regular, wide angle and telephoto cameras which NO OTHER MANUFACTURER has delivered with a Quad DAC included and a headphone jack which seems like a premium feature nowadays, top of the line SD845 and 8GB of RAM and you say no one will care about???? You're ridiculous!!!! I think want You mean is you won't care about simply because you're Broke and can't afford it!!!!

The fact is no one does care. LG sells a few phones in the US and Korea, they are losing money hand over fist for years now and the top brass at LG will only let it happen for so long then LG Mobile will be no more.

Pocophone is an affordable phone for those who care mainly about fast SOC and RAM. This is not a bad thing, it's just what it is. V40 has much better display, much better cameras, much better loudspeaker, quad DAC much better built quality.

Although it's good to keep trying .. but I hope those guys stop trying and save some money to open an OLED manufactur to supply Apple ..

2019 is all about battery size, LG ! I remember the days where LG Chem did crazy things like stacked battery for G2 in order to fit a (then a record) 3000 mAh inside a 5.2"/16:9 screen device, or created a hexagonal 560mAh battery for the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. And now ? They fit measly 3000mAh batteries even in their large phone offerings, and expect people to buy their devices. Get your act together, LG !

First, it's 3300mAh. Secondly, my G6 lasts all day with a 3000mAh battery, so why would I want the extra weight and size with a larger battery? I think LG is going for the sweet-spot, and I think they hit it. And honestly, I don't know what phone I would get without LG.

Not sure how you get that, but my own G6 needs a 'refill' halfway through the day. 3000 is peanuts. We should expect more from LG.

I burst out laughing when I saw the battery capacity..

I burst out of laughing when my V30 gets better battery from the note 9 and p20 pro with 4000 mAh

No, it doesn't. I have a V30, iphone 8 plus and Note 9. The V30 gets about 5hrs sot. While Note 9 gets between 6-7hrs of sot.


Posts: 652; Member since: Jun 28, 2014

Lies. My V35 gets 5hrs SOT and the V30 has 30% better battery efficiency from having an SD835 instead of SD845. That means it gets at least 7hrs SOT.

15. OneLove123

I do not get 7hrs with my V30. Who are you going to believe? You with no V30 or Note 9 or me with both?

Activate developer option in your settings, zero out all animations and transitions..... Enjoy 7-9 SOT consistently

My V30 (and many others) have got and still get 8-10 hours SoT consistently, since day 1.

You're probably right, but there's always room for improvement. What's wrong with having a bigger battery capacity to go along with LG's great battery optimization, so it can have even more SOT?

My G6 lasts all day on a single charge. I've got no reason to carry around a larger and heavier phone with a battery I don't need.

Still no word on if they are still using the same 1/3.09" camera sensors? If so then it's a no go as it won't be able to capture as much detail as its competition.

By design the sensor MUST be bigger since the Pixel size is 1.4um even if it's now a 12 Megapixel camera. So the main sensor at least, should be 20% bigger! It's probably going to be either Sonny's IMX 362 like in the Pixel 2 or IMX 363 like the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s and Vivo Next! Those are 1/2.55" sensors!!! Paired up with LG's great photography software and I think we got a winner!!!

Needs a bigger battery than that.


Posts: 652; Member since: Jun 28, 2014

Well having just got my V35 about a month ago, I don't see the purpose of this V40. It's the same battery, degraded screen (depending what you think of the notch), improved storage (what the V35 should've had in the first place for $900). And a degraded wide angle lens (12MP vs 16MP on V35) in exchange you get a low resolution telephoto lens.. No thanks! I do like the dedicated power button placement though.

Lower resolution only means smaller images, but clarity is improved by having pixels that are 40% bigger as they trap more light! That's why the Google Pixel 2s could take GREAT photos in the dark!!! I'm A HUGE LG fan and can tell you that I've been waiting for this change for a long time!!! 12MP f/1.5 1/2.55" sensor 1.4um Pixel size is better than 16MP f/1.6 1/3.06" 1um Pixel size!!! They only sad thing is to know you might've pulled the trigger too soon!!! Don't worry, you're not alone, I just got the LG G7. But I'm going to wait a little bit until the price of the V40 drops to around $600 to buy it so I won't feel too bad. I suggest you do the same! Cheers!!!
