Ahead of next week’s unveiling, LG has gone ahead and confirmed the existence of the upcoming V40 ThinQ smartphone. The device has been leaking in all sorts of places as of late, with Evan Blass’ Twitter account being the most recent location on the World Wide Web where we’ve seen the phone pop up. Now, though, LG is going as far as sharing some of the specs and features of the V40 with the public ahead of its formal announcement.
For one, the V40 will come with three cameras on the back. This has been rumored for quite some time now and confirmed by multiple rumors and reports, but it’s nice to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth. An official image of the V40 accommodates this news which clearly depicts three separate cameras for normal photos, wide-angle photography, and lossless zoom/portrait mode shots.
The V40 will also ship with a 6.4-inch display. LG has said in the past it saves the best smartphone displays for its V series of devices, so expect the V40 to come with an OLED panel instead of Super LCD or something. The device will be as wide as the LG V30 from last year but offer a much taller screen, likely with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
In addition, the V40 is also confirmed to ship with an all-glass design available in three finishes: a new Platinum Gray, Carmine Red, and Moroccan Blue. Interestingly, these colors will offer a much more matte finish over previous iterations of V series devices such as the V30 and V35. LG says the back glass of the V40 will be scratch-proof, fingerprint-proof, and dirt-resistant, all while being soft to the touch. We’ll have to get the device in our hands to test these claims, but things seem promising so far.
LG will introduce the rest of the V40 to the world on October 3rd at an event in New York. We’ll be covering all the news coming out of the event so be sure to stay tuned.
