There are a lot of smartphone launches in October. We have the Pixel 3, Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Something that was overlooked by most if the LG V40 ThinQ.
The LG V40 ThinQ shares many of the features of the LG G7 ThinQ+ which we reviewed some time ago. The most important changes are mostly on it’s photography department. LG V40 ThinQ Plus has 3 back cameras which allows you to take 3 shots simultaneously in normal, wide angle and telephoto. With the f/1.5 and f/1.7 (wide angle), the v40 ThinQ plus should be able to take relatively good pictures even in near darkness. Other interesting features include Cinemagraphy modes which makes it easy to film a short film where you can freeze the “time”.
Rear camera 1 — 12MP main sensor with OIS and f/1.5 aperture
Rear camera 2 — 16MP wide-angle lens with f/1.7
Rear camera 3 — 12MP telephoto 2x zoom lens with f/2.4
Front camera 1 — 8MP main sensor with f/1.9
Front camera 2 — 5MP wide-angle shooter with f/2.2
LG unveiled it in United States and it is the first 5 camera smartphone to date. The LG V40 ThinQ supports simultaneous photo capture from multiple cameras, immersive 3D surround sound and a massive 6.4” display.
The three rear cameras let you take photos at three different focal ranges simultaneously, so you never miss an angle and can choose the best photo to share or print. The telephoto zoom lens gives you twice the reach of the standard lens without sacrificing image quality. The super wide-angle camera makes it easy to take expansive panoramas and group shots so no one ever feels left out. To make sure your photos are as good as the pros, LG introduces new AI technology that adjusts your subject’s position and frames your picture to help you create an artistically balanced photo. It even adjusts the exposure and shutter speed to enhance your shot.
It can do cinemagraphics too.
On the flip side, two front-facing cameras capture standard and wide-angle photos so you can grab a quick selfie of yourself or of you and all your friends. With the V40 ThinQ, you can document every moment big or small and you can make your selfies stand out with custom background effects, adjustable lighting and artistic filters.
The LG V40 ThinQ makes it easy to escape from reality with a DTS:X 3D surround sound system*** that gives you spatial sound on the go. Whether you’re listening to your favorite band or watching a movie, when you put on your wired headphones, the audio on the V40 ThinQ feels like it’s coming from all directions.
The LG V40 ThinQ is available on Verizon for preorder starting October 11 in Aurora Black and Verizon-exclusive Moroccan Blue, starting at $40.83 a month for 24 months on Verizon device payment ($979.99 retail; 0% APR).
