LG V40 ThinQ stops by the FCC en route to all major US carriers

LG V40 ThinQ stops by the FCC en route to all major US carriers
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is already out, but before settling on your next ultra-high-end smartphone, you may want to wait a few more weeks. That’s because an onslaught of new flagships is in the pipeline, starting with Apple’s highly anticipated (and thoroughly leaked) iPhone Xs, Xs Plus (or Max), and iPhone Xc (or Xr).

While we either know for sure or have a pretty good idea of when the Pixel 3/3 XL, Huawei Mate 20/Mate 20 Pro, and OnePlus 6T are to be officially unveiled, all we can say about the LG V40 ThinQ is that it’s probably coming soon.

Certified in South Korea just the other day, it seems the “notchy” OLED screen-sporting big guy had already paid the US Federal Communications Commission a certification visit on September 6.

The regulatory documents were made available to the public by the FCC yesterday, September 11, revealing a not-so-mysterious V405 handset is... indeed coming soon. Unfortunately, as always, there are no juicy technical details confirmed here, other than essentially universal LTE support. 

That means the LG V40 ThinQ will most likely work on every single US carrier, including Verizon and Sprint, also featuring native Band 71 compatibility for 600 MHz Extended Range LTE access on T-Mobile.

In case you’re wondering, we’re fairly certain the aforementioned V405 model number designates LG’s next-gen hero device, even though last year’s V30 went by H931, H932, and VS996 aliases for certification purposes. The V35 ThinQ released earlier in 2018 carries the V350 model number, thus sharing a strong connection with this V405.

As far as design and specifications are concerned, the V40 ThinQ has been repeatedly leaked and rigorously detailed of late, so all that’s left to be revealed are dates and price points.

Well well I'm here for this. Hopefully it's available before November unlike previous rumors. I think this phone will have it all for me especially if the battery life is decently improved over the G7. I'll never need a lens attachment or anything with this bad boy.
