LG V90 trademark suggests brand has long-term plans for V-series
Although LG has previously stated that it will only release smartphones when it deems them necessary, the company has gone ahead and trademarked the LG V90 moniker in Mexico, hinting at the brand’s intent to continue the line of smartphones for as many as six generations starting with this year’s flagship model. Speaking of which, recent information has claimed that the LG V40 ThinQ will ship with as many as five cameras that will be featured in the form of a triple-camera setup on the rear and a dual-sensor offering up front. Moreover, following in the footsteps of the G7 ThinQ, LG’s next V-line flagship is set to include the Snapdragon 845 on the inside alongside 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Also, rounding out the package will be Android 9.0 P straight out of the box with the company’s custom overlay on top.
If recent reports are accurate, consumers can expect to see the LG V40 ThinQ on shelves by the second half of October, thus following a launch schedule that’s roughly two weeks behind that of last year’s LG V30. However, considering the LG G7 ThinQ was only made official back in May, the unveiling of the V40 ThinQ in September will significantly close the gap between LG's G and V-line releases.
