LG has finally launched its new flagship, the V40 ThinQ – The first smartphone with 5 cameras. There are three cameras at the back and two in front. Apart from the standard and wide angle lens, the V40 ThinQ also comes with a telephoto lens. All these make the V40 ThinQ camera more versatile than any other phone on the market.
The V40 comes with a 6.4 inch OLED panel screen for rich colors and great viewing angles. The phone runs on an 845 Snapdragon processor with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. There’s a micro SD slot for those who want extra storage space. It supports wireless charging, water, and dust resistant and has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The V40 has a single speaker which is surprisingly loud no matter where you place the phone. LG gave the V40 a 3,300mAh battery capacity which is supposed to last you a day.
The main thing that makes the V40 stand out is its 5 camera system, so let’s go deeper into that. It has a 12MP rear camera with a f/1.5 optical lens.
