LG V40 specs and launch leak, to be released after Note 9, before belated iPhone 9

It will also keep its distance from Apple, claims the report, whose iPhone 9 2018 (the cheapest model) will be launched in mid- to late October, after the expensive iPhone X (2018) and X Plus, just as other rumors predicted. Apparently, LG will try to fit right between the two juggernauts with a dedicated announcement event, and a release that is equidistant from its main competitors, so as not to drown the V40 in the resulting media noise.
With the specs that the Koreans just tipped, we doubt that the V40 will be overshadowed, though. The company is again said to equip the phone with a triple camera on the back - 20MP, 16MP and 13MP lens - and might be the only phone at the time to carry both "super wide-angle" and "super telephoto" lenses on it. Does that mean that we might see 3x optical zoom, like on the P20 Pro? Remains to be heard.
The two front cameras will be used for 3D face-scanning, like on the iPhone X, Oppo Find X, and Xiaomi Mi 8, which dovetails with the previous speculation that the V40 will sport 5 cameras in total. Last but not least, the rumored OLED display of the V40 is now said to occupy 90%+ of the front, for a stellar screen-to-body ratio, and, since the phone is also said to come with a notch, it will likely be very compact for its screen size. Sounds like a winning combo, and we pray for a larger battery to remedy the weakest point of the G7. Oh, tucked in this report is the third confirmation we hear that Apple will delay the launch of the 6.1" LCD iPhone a full month after the OLED models. Bummer.

I'm holding out for the V40. Freakin notch and all. LG's manual mode is the dream and with the right sensor setup for these cameras, there's no need to look elsewhere or even wait for the sure fire camera in the Pixel 3. I was going to choose an excellent auto mode and guaranteed speedy updates with the Pixel 3 but camera control and options matter more to me at the end of the day. MicroSD expansion, wireless charging, and hopefully battery life exceeding that of the already great V30 and it's a complete win for me.
