LG V40 rumored to boast five cameras, face unlock and notched display

According to a previous rumor, LG plans to continue to use an OLED panel in the V-series devices, and the V40 is no exception. However, what we didn't know is that LG will put a notched display on the V40, but users will be able to hide it, just like in G7's case.
AndroidPolice reports that a source familiar with LG's plans claims the V40 will pack no less than five cameras, possibly with a triple-camera configuration on the back and a dual-camera setup on the front. Also, at least one of the front cameras will allow users to unlock the V40 with their face.
On the other hand, the triple-camera setup on the back of the phone will feature a standard wide lens, LG's ultrawide lens, as well as a third sensor that we haven't yet learned anything about.
Naturally, the LG V40 will be equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, the company's proprietary Quad DAC, and a dedicated Google Assistant button. Although the back of the phone may be a bit crowded due to the addition of an extra lens, LG has decided to keep the fingerprint sensor on the rear side as well.
If at least half of the details included in this report prove to be accurate in the end, LG may be back in business, especially if the V40 will be priced competitively.
Now we're getting the how many cameras race? Next up: https://media.wired.com/photos

I believe that's 3 rear cameras and dual front cameras. anything beside that would sound absolutely ridiculous

I can imagine a normal camera, a zoom camera and a wide-angle camera for the most out of your phone. But 2 front cameras, I can imagine that's only to have the bokeh effect. Or a wide-angle selfie camera for big people

So that 3 on back, 2 on front. Then the pixel have only 2, pixel should have 2 on back.

Probably 3 on the rear and one on the front. I'm not buying into the 5 camera hype. I was waiting on the Pixel 3 which I know will be great but this really is most likely the phone for me. If the V40 has a standard, wide and zoom lens then I will be set for the next couple of years assuming they get it right. LG's manual mode is already above any competing phone and that's usually the mode I live in. I just need to hold out a little longer.

The article is very misleading. Many companies are shifting focus on multiple cameras. Towards the end of the article it mentioned 3 rear camera and two front facers. Not a big deal as iPhone X has an infrared camera and front camera. They will add another camera for 3 rear cameras. Not a big deal.

If the rumor was "to boast a 5000 mAh battery", then that would really get my attention ! More cameras are really a replacement for lack of innovation and don't do anything to really improve the user experience. These companies are acting like all the users are teenagers, when a huge part of the market uses their phones for real business !

I'm on the fence on LG aa ot late. Still gotta replace the camera glass cover on my brothers V20. I do believe the screen on the V30 has been an area of complaints. Just first hand: my G2 bootlooped during an update and my G3 had the infamous frame crack. Luckily I jumped off those (Tmo) Not sure I'd trust LG. Gotta pull the stops, and step up quality.
