LG V40 rumored to boast five cameras, face unlock and notched display
As we're getting close to IFA 2018 trade fair that's scheduled to kick off in late August, more details about unannounced flagships emerge online. One of the most exciting Android smartphones that's likely to be unveiled this fall, the LG V40 is slowly becoming less of a mystery thanks to a couple of leaked reports that seem to paint a pretty darn good picture.

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.
