You can say that it shares a lot of similar characteristics as its smaller sibling. With everything being the same, the V40 ThinQ is about it getting a larger 6.4-inch Quad HD P-OLED screen and five cameras being fitted onto it. More on that later.

Starting with the screen, it is lightweight with intense colour and perfect blacks where you get to experience award-winning LG OLED technology in the palm of your hand. You are assured of the best protection around, with the V40 ThinQ being equipped with a military grade shock resistant protection, IP68 rating making it dust and water proof, as well as Gorilla Glass 5 making it indestructible.

Under the hood of the V40 ThinQ is also the best that money can offer. Blessed with the Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with a blazingly fast octa-core processor, great graphics and 6GB RAM. There won’t be anything that will stand in its path.

Now here’s to the best part about the V40 ThinQ – the five cameras. With the Triple Shot technology, with just one click gets you three different pictures out of it - standard, telephoto zoom, and super wide-angle all rolled into one. Next, we have Cine Shot that lets you control what is moving, as you transform your snapshots into living photos that grab and hold attention. Then we have AI technology, where AI Cam recognises what you are shooting and suggests the best filter, while AI Composition adjusts the position of your subject for artistically balanced photos. Lastly, the dual 8MP+5MP selfie camera ensures all your selfies stand out with the 90° wide angle lens to get the full picture.

Conclusion:

LG V40 ThinQ ups the ante in the flagship world, as long as you are prepared to pay close to USD 1,000 to own one. But in exchange, you will get nothing but the best regarding performance, camera, software – all mixed into one beast of a smartphone.

LG V40 ThinQ is set to be released on October 18th for ~ USD 950 and will be available in Aurora Black or Moroccan Blue colour.
