LG has announced the long-awaited V40 ThinQ, a smartphone with as one of the most important unique selling points a system with three cameras at the rear. One camera to zoom in, a second with a wide-angle lens and a third with a normal lens.
In total, the V40 ThinQ has no less than five cameras, because there are also two other front cameras: a standard front camera and an extra camera with a 90-degree wide angle lens for selfies with a little more background.
The V40 ThinQ not only stands out among the five cameras, it is also a pretty powerful smartphone with a hefty, 6.4-inch screen (with notch/notch at the top). That screen has an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 and a resolution of 1.440 x 3.120 pixels. The phone has the fast Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 GB memory and 64 GB storage capacity. The battery in it has a capacity of 3,300 mAh.
But the cameras are what it is all about with this device. The main camera on the back has a 12 megapixel sensor (1.4μm) and an f / 1.5 lens with optical image stabilization. The camera with telephoto lens (12 megapixel, f / 2.4, 1.0μm) is good for 2x optical zoom and thanks to the camera with wide-angle lens (16 megapixels, f / 1.9, 1.0μm) you can take photos with an angle of 107 degrees.
The LG V40 ThinQ runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and will be available in the colors black and blue. In the United States, the device costs between 900 and 980 dollars. Whether and when the V40 ThinQ also comes to Europe is not yet known.
