LG reveals how it intends to make the V40 a joy to hold and use
The LG V40 ThinQ is about to be officially unveiled October 2, but LG has weirdly decided to give us a scoop of information every each day following up to the announcement. Although such a tease is kind of anticlimactic, it gives us very good insights on what the V40's key features will be. The triple-camera at the back is definitely one of those, but today LG's sharing another rather important aspect of its upcoming autumn flagship - the design.

Already showcased to the fullest, the upcoming V40 leaves almost nothing to the imagination. LG, in particular, seems quite proud of the design of the phone, which is not just your regular glass device, mind you. It features a "textured" glass back, which employs what LG calls "Silky Blast" - microscopic etched pits on the rear glass of the LG V40. According to the company, these would immensely help with the grip of the device, which is something essential for those big slippery bricks of glass we haul in our hands everyday.

As an added bonus, LG claims the Silky Blast rear back will attract less fingerprints all the while feeling very satisfying to touch. It will be really interesting to put all these claims to the test.
To further improve the usability of the device, LG has kept the same general width as last year's V30, but slimmed the bezels even further and increased the height by almost half an inch in order to achieve a superior screen-to-body ratio.

LG also reveals what colors the V40 will be available in - New Aurora Black, New Platinum Gray, New Moroccan Blue, and Carmine Red are all the coats of paint you will be able to get the phone in. However, availability will depend on each specific market.

The original press release follows below.
