LG is reportedly working on its fourth flagship smartphone for 2018, the LG V40 ThinQ. As per Evan Blass, the company has codenamed it Storm and it will be launched after the G7 ThinQ and V35 ThinQ, around late summer time. We already know that the G7 ThinQ will be launched on May 2 and LG also has the V35 ThinQ in the pipeline. Nothing more of the LG V40 ThinQ is known yet, but we can expect some leaks and reports to reveal more about the phone with time.
The G7 ThinQ was previously leaked in a promo poster and it was seen with an iPhone X-like notch on top of its display, along with a thin-bezel design. LG’s ThinQ series of smartphones come with heavy AI customisations like AI Cam, which is said to apply four different levels of optimisation for enhancing the quality of a captured photo. The leaked render also suggests that the device could be launched in Platinum Grey, Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue, Raspberry Rose, and a matte version of Moroccan Blue, which will reportedly be available for select regions and network carriers. It could also sport a vertically stacked dual-rear camera setup and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, embedded into the home button. In terms of specifications, The LG G7 ThinQ could be powered by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage and it was previously spotted on AnTuTu, where it scored 2,52,473 on the benchmarking test.
The LG V35 ThinQ is expected to be the successor to the company’s recently launched V30S+ ThinQ smartphone. According to an earlier report, the smartphone could feature a 6-inch QHD+ OLED display with a taller 18:9 display aspect ratio and an 80-percent screen-to-body ratio, without a notch on top of its display. In the camera department, the device will reportedly feature an upgraded dual 16MP rear cameras, where one is said to be a ‘standard’ camera with a f/1.6 aperture glass lens with 10-bit HDR compatibility, whereas the other could be a wide-angle lens with 107-degree field-of-view. The main cameras will also come with features like quickly switching between the two lenses, “AI Cam,” and Google Lens support at launch. There might also be a Super Bright Mode and “superpixels” for capturing better images in extreme low-light conditions.
