LG launched its V-series falgship device- the LG V40 ThinQ- at a special event in New York in October. And now, nearly four months after the phone made its global debut, V40 ThinQ is making its way to India. The word on the street is the Korean electronics giant is going launch its flagship device in India soon.
According to serial leakster Ishan Aggarwal, LG will launch the V40 ThinQ in India in the coming week or later. Aggarwal, who has an excellent track record at predicting information pertaining to smartphones, has also said that LG upcoming device would be exclusively available online via Amazon India. Though, it will also be available via offline channels. Commenting on the price, he has predicted that the smartphone would be priced around Rs 44,990 in the country. However, he has cautioned that the price is likely to change. We expect the LG V40 ThinQ to be priced below Rs 50,000.
To give you a refresher about the phone’s specifications, the LG V40 ThinQ comes with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision Display with a resolution of 3120 x 1440. Just like its predecessor, V35 ThinQ and other phones in LG’s ThinQ series, G7 ThinQ, which we reviewed last year, the V40 ThinQ comes with MIL-STD 810G military grade standard and IP68 water and dust resistant technology.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and it runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. While the V40 ThinQ comes with 6GB RAM, it is available in two memory variants- one with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage and the other with 6GB RAM and 128GB memory capacity.
In terms of camera, the V40 ThinQ, features a triple camera setup at the back with a 16MP super wide-angle lens, a 12MP primary lens and a 12MP telephoto lens. In the front, the phone sports a dual camera setup with an 8MP standard lens and a 5MP wide angle lens. Interestingly, LG offers three camera modes that enables the users to make the most of its cameras. While the Cine Mode allows users to capture cinemagraphs using any of the phone’s three rear cameras, the Triple Preview mode gives a live preview of all the three rear cameras simultaneously, allowing users pick the shot they want to capture. On the other hand, the Triple Shot mode enables users to capture images using the phone’s three rear cameras simultaneously.
