LG recently unveiled their newest flagship smartphone the LG V40 ThinQ. It packs plenty of features including a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6GB RAM, and a total of five cameras. Is that all there is to it though? Check out its best features below.
A flagship smartphone deserves a premium build, and the LG V40 ThinQ won’t disappoint. For starters, it has a minimalist design with a metal frame and glass front and back that curves towards the edges. LG even used their proprietary Silky Blast process for the tempered glass back to etch it with microscopic pits to create a smoother matte finish to make it less slippery and make it more resistant to fingerprints and stains.
If you’re wondering about its toughness, it meets the U.S. Department of Defense requirements for durability, passing 14 MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test categories for suitability in military operations and is IP68 rated. It comes in four colors:
6.4-inch QHD+ OLED Display
LG is known for equipping their flagship devices with top-notch displays and the V40 ThinQ is no exception. It has a large 6.4-inch QHD+ (3120 x 1440) 19.5:9 OLED FullVision display with a notched design and a slim bottom bezel that is 1.6mm thinner than its predecessor. It’s packed with pixels at 538ppi and a screen-to-body ratio of 83.6%.
High-End Audio Features
If you’re planning to use the V40 ThinQ for entertainment we’re glad to report that this phone packs high fidelity audio and is the first LG phone to be tuned with Meridian Audio – an English manufacturer of high-performance, high-fidelity audio and video components and systems. It also sports a Boombox Speaker, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, and DTS:X 3D Surround Sound.
While other smartphones are sporting a total of three or four cameras. LG went all out and equipped the V40 ThinQ with a total of five cameras – 3 on the rear and two on the front.
The rear camera module sport three different lenses: 16MP super wide-angle (170-degrees), 12MP standard angle and 12MP telephoto (2x optical), so users can take three different shots without changing position. It has Dual PDAF autofocus, AI CAM with a new AI Composition feature, and Triple Shot feature that stitches together the images captured with each of the three lenses into a short video file for easy sharing.
As for the front cameras, it features a 5MP wide-angle lens and 8MP standard angle that work in tandem to create a bokeh effect.
Snapdragon 845, 6GB RAM, 128GB UFS 2.1
To complete its flagship status, it has to have flagship internals. In this case, the V40 ThinQ has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6GB LPDDR4x RAM, and 64GB / 128GB UFS 2.1 which can be expanded via microSD card. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and has a 3,300mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and Wireless Charging.
