New LG V40 renders leak out - this could be one of the largest LG phones ever

Expected to be released in the first half of October, the unannounced LG V40 is shaping up to be a really big handset. We first saw the V40 several days ago, when a few renders allowed us to notice the phone's notch and triple rear camera. Today, thanks to a new set of leaked renders, we can take another look at the upcoming smartphone. 

Reportedly, the LG V40 renders seen in this article are based on factory CAD blueprints, so they should provide an accurate description of the device. According to Slashleaks and @OnLeaks, the V40 sports a 6.3-inch display - that's 0.3 inches larger than the screens of its predecessors, the LG V30 and LG V35

Unsurprisingly, the bigger display makes the V40 larger overall. Reportedly, the phone measures 158.8 x 75.8 x 7.8 mm, so it's going to be taller and a bit wider and thicker than the V30 and V35 (both measuring 151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3 mm). If these dimensions are accurate, the V40 will be the third-largest high-end LG smartphone to date, ranked just below the 5-year-old LG G Flex (160.5 x 81.6 x 7.9 mm) and the 3-year-old LG V10 (159.6 x 79.3 x 8.6 mm). 

At this moment, there are no other details on the features of the LG V40. However, we can see that the phone has a dual front-facing camera, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port. Most probably, the handset will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, while RAM and storage space should be aplenty. We're expecting nothing less than Android 9 Pie to be on board at launch come October. 

How do you like the LG V40 so far?

Don’t think it’s going to be the same thing as iPhone X this time since iPhone X replace the ordinary iPhone 8 Plus.

So what is the difference between the G series and the V series? to me they look pretty much the same with no distinguishable features, at least in the past V models they had the secondary screen and indestructible body. LG must ran out of ideas.

I have an LG G7, not only is it one of the highest quality phones I've used or ever held, the screen is gorgeous, easy to use with one hand, Has INCREDIBLE wired audio with the quad 32-bit HiFi DAC and DTS X surround sound. The cameras are HIGHLY HIGHLY Underrated, they take amazing photos, all 3 of them. And you know what's amazing, this "small" 3000mAh battery gives me the best battery life I've ever had in a smartphone. LG actually manufactures their cell phones themselves in their own manufacturing plant, instead of making a really high mAh battery they made a really high quality battery, mAh isn't the only thing that makes a battery have a longer charge. A really high quality 3000mAh battery can last longer than an average quality 3500mAh battery, the design and feel of the phone is part of their idea and it still passes the military drop tests without a case, same drop tests they used to, it's military drop test certified. You have not a dang clue what you are dismissing by dismissing LG phones, Samsung doesn't even build their own phones they are built in Vietnam, LG's phones are built in LG's plant in South Korea where they manufacture most every individual component other than the 845 SoC obviously and certain other microchips, but they do put them all on the motherboard, let's see where are iPhones made, oh yeah foxconn in China where every other device is made that the company doesn't have the resources to build their own products.

How much is LG paying you, bro? Because for the right price, I'll jump in on this.

He's not lying though. LG makes pretty high-quality phones. My 2-year-old V20 is still running strong.

What's your point? I've had phones from multiple brands "running strong" after 2 years. That doesn't make LG special.

A removeable battery would be great. It's too bad everyone copies Apple instead at the recommendation of idiot pundits. I'd like to see and Android One model of the GUYS with the 845 processor, 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and a flat screen .

While I agree that LG's phones are excellent (when notchless) to say that Samsung products are not made by Samsung is utter nonsense. Samsung own their own factories all over Asia and make all of their Samsung products in their Samsung factories.

G series comes with IPS, V series comes with OLED bigger screen and might be the V40 8 gig of ram, 128GB or mayabe LG add 24K gold cooling system with upcoming V40 lol.

Like the design but hope LG brings it with the v40. Hard to beat the mate 20 series for sure!

Lg is quite good in camera dept so what if they use large sensors like Google/Apple/Samsung ?

They are not. Only PA thinks this. G7 does not do much different from G3/G4. Samples are worse than G5/G6. You can download full samples on gsmarena review. One photographer told me LG is the #1 of oversharpening. Even with more controls you will never get better results because of hardware. They should use the same 16MP 1/2.6" of XA Ultra front camera, not 1/3" sensors.

I've been a fan of LG phones up until the G5 and G6. The notch doesn't bother me like it does all the little girls on here who complain about it. What I'm interested in is the 32 Bit Quad DAC from B&O, 4000 mah battery and a 2 year warranty... If it's priced below the Note then it might be a go. I'm not somebody who gets the new stuff right at launch so I can wait until the holidays are in full effect and see a good discount

I hope they use 1/2.6" 16MP (16:9) sensors like they did in the G4 and the G5, I mean they had incredible IQ in the sensor POV alone. If they use it with improved image processing and better lens it would be just amazing. These new 1/3.1'' tiny sensors are just bad, and frankly the processing especially under low light has been a mess with water color like images. It almost feels like the IQ degraded overtime. An OLED display, SD845, 6/8GB ram, 128GB storage without cutting any other features they already have would be just perfect. And yeah, the boombox speakers with a front firing one as an assistance would be just incredible.

I like how you think. I'm all for LG using new sensors for their camera setup this time. Bigger sensors with improved processing and keeping the higher mp count would (should) give LG the edge over the competition. Boombox speakers with the earpiece as a second speaker would be the icing on the cake but I'm not hopeful for it. I think the price will be just right though unless LG is still high and price it like they did the V35.
