While we loved the LG G6 and the LG V30, it’s no secret that LG’s mobile division has found itself in dire straits recently. Still, LG has a few tricks up its sleeve, and it’s probably hoping that 2018 will see a revival of its fortunes. Chief among LG’s great hopes is likely to be one of its flagship heavy-hitters — the LG V40 ThinQ. Here’s everything we know about LG’s upcoming blockbuster.


With this phone’s release looking to be at least six months away, we’ve heard very little about any possible specs, and you can expect some details to change as the phone’s release date nears.

According to the latest from report Android Police, the LG V40 could include five cameras. While it’s unclear what each one is for exactly, at least one of the two will reportedly be used for facial recognition to unlock the device. The report claims there could be a “stereo configuration” that will allow record a 3D map of the face. As for the three rear cameras, the device could include a standard wide lens, ultrawide lens (that LG is known for), and a third sensor with a purpose that is yet to be revealed.

However, it’s a fair bet that the LG V40 ThinQ will release with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. A leaked list of phones from December 2017 included the LG V40 as one of the phones expected to include Qualcomm’s newest and most powerful chipset, and we can’t see that changing between now and later this year.

That is all we know about the LG V40 ThinQ, but you can expect to see a lot more from this phone as we move through the year. The LG V30 was our sleeper hit of 2017, and we’re expecting LG to pull out even more stops in 2018.


As for the look of it, the LG V40 will reportedly look similar to the LG G7 ThinQ, Android Police reports. According to a source, it will include a notched display, LG’s Quad DA, and a button for Google Assistant that will be found along the volume rocker. On the back, there will also be a fingerprint sensor.


While we don’t know very much about the latest addition to LG’s V-range, the name seems to be fairly set in stone. The first confirmation of the name has come from renowned and usually correct serial leaker Evan Blass, who tweeted that an upcoming LG handset going by the code name “Storm” was in fact the LG V40 — a later tweet also confirmed that the full name of the handset would be the LG V40 ThinQ, to match the LG G7 ThinQ.

Release date

LG’s V-range has traditionally been one of the later models to launch in a calendar year, and that tradition seems to be intact, with Evan Blass tweeting that the LG V40 ThinQ should be expected in late summer or early fall of 2018.

Details are thin on the ground at the moment, but expect more leaks to emerge as we get closer to the anticipated release date.

Updated June 26: LG V40 will reportedly include five cameras and face unlock.
