LG V40 ThinQ is set to become the next offering from the South Korean giant LG. The company announced yesterday that it will be hosting an event in New York at 5 pm EDT (2:30 am IST) on October 3 to unveil the LG V40 ThinQ. That event will be followed by another launch event on October 4 at the LG Science park in Seoul’s Magok district at 10 am KST (6:30 am IST). The company has also shared a teaser which shows the LG V40 ThinQ to sport a triple camera setup on its rear panel.
The company has already sent South Korea invites for the event as confirmed by LG Electronics and another website The Verge reported that invites for the New York event have also been sent. The text, seen on the South Korean invite’s teaser also reveals that the upcoming flagship device will indeed come with a triple rear camera module comprising of a standard camera, a super wide angle camera, and a telephoto camera.
The revelation comes in line with earlier reports that had claimed that the LG V40 ThinQ would feature as many as five cameras with three on the rear panel and two in front. An earlier report had claimed that the rear cameras would be of 20MP, 16MP, and 13MP respectively although there was no information about the front cameras.
Apart from the optic elements, earlier reports also claimed that the device will feature a large display with a notch feature on top. It is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The phone may also feature a dedicated Google Assistant button along with LG’s Quad DAC audio technology. The phone may arrive with a 90% screen-to-body ratio which means it will have very thin bezels on the sides. We will have to wait for a few more days to see exactly what the upcoming flagship device brings onboard.
