The LG V40 ThinQ was rumored to have triple cameras and was earlier shown off with a display notch. And then it was teased again with five cameras. It was officially unveiled earlier this October and we soon confirmed the triple rear and dual selfie cams. For mobile photography enthusiasts, the Cine Shot features is something to look forward to as it makes cinemagraphs easy. We’ve finally got our hands on a unit and we thought five cameras is definitely a serious business.
The LG V40 ThinQ is one of the frontrunners for this month. It’s a newcomer alright but it’s one of the most advanced with its premium specs and AI features. The smartphone finally reaches the United States and is available from major mobile carriers such as AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and US Cellular and retailers like Best Buy and B&H Photo.
