LG V40 ThinQ specs
The LG V40 ThinQ comes loaded with flagship grade specifications. The phone gets a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display with 3120×1440 resolution, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and a 19.5:9 display aspect ratio. The key highlight of the phone is that it gets five cameras in total, three on the rear and two on the front. The smartphone runs on last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS2.1 internal storage. The internal storage on the phone can be expanded up to 2TB via a microSD card. It also features IP68 water and dust resistance with Military-grade (MIL-STD-810) certification.
Coming to the V40 ThinQ’s main attraction, the phone features a triple primary camera setup with a 78-degree standard, a 45-degree telephoto zoom, and a 107 degree super wide-angle lens. What’s unique is that one can capture an image in all the three modes with a click. The standard main camera features a f/1.5 12MP sensor with 1.4µm pixels, which is larger than the 1.0µm pixels of the LG V35 and the LG G7. The main camera supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Dual Pixel AutoFocus. The telephoto lens is paired with a 12MP sensor with f/2.4 lens, while the wide-angle lens gets a 16MP sensor.
At the front, the LG V40 ThinQ gets a dual camera setup with an 8MP, 26mm standard lens paired with a 5MP, 21mm wide angle lens. The cameras on the phone also use AI for composing shots by recognising people in the frame and helping users frame the image using “rule of thirds” composition.
The entire package is powered by a 3300mAh battery and the handset supports fast wireless charging and Quick Charge 3.0. There’s also a BoomBox speaker and a 3.5mm audio jack on the phone, which can relay audio via a 32-bit Quad DAC.
