LG V40 ThinQ Has 5 Cameras!:

We've long seen a pixel race going on among camera companies but with smartphone manufacturers, it seems to be all about the number of lenses you can fit into a device. We've seen many smartphones featuring dual, or even triple, rear camera but right now, it's LG who are leading the way with 5 cameras built into the new LG V40 ThinQ. 

The LG V40 ThinQ is the latest smartphone to join the V series and features a rear camera module with three different lenses: 16MP, 107-degree,  super wide-angle, 12MP standard angle and 12MP telephoto with 2x optical zoom (or 3.2x the zoom of the wide-angle lens). The front camera module features a 5MP wide-angle lens and 8MP standard angle that work in tandem to create a bokeh effect with an on-screen slider to adjust the amount of background blur. Plus, lighting and special effects are also built in.

Other interesting, and useful, camera features include Triple Shot which stitches together the images captured with each of the three lenses into a short video file for easy sharing. Dual PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) is also built-in along with an HDR mode, Cine Shot, 3D Light Effect, Makeup Pro, Custom Backdrop, My Avatar and AR Emoji.

The pixel size of the main rear camera sensor has been improved by about 40 percent compared to the LG V30, increasing from 1μm to 1.4μm, while the image sensor is more than 18 percent larger than in the LG V30. LG also says that the V40 ThinQ delivers great DOF thanks to the f/1.5 aperture of the main camera and has half the shutter lag as well as a significantly faster burst mode when compared to the LG V30.

AI isn't something new but the AI CAM built into the LG V40 ThinQ has an AI Composition feature which can frame, capture and recommend an alternative shot to the one taken by the user. AI Auto White Balance (AI AWB) automatically adjusts the colour temperature across different lighting situations while AI Shutter selects the right shutter speed. Basically, they're better auto modes. 

As for screen size, 6.4" is plenty of room for viewing images and LG says that the 4.5 million pixels delivered by the OLED display is the most of any QHD+ smartphone on the market today.

Inside the smartphone, you'll find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage and a 3300mAh battery.

The LG V40 ThinQ retains the slim and light design heritage of the V series, weighing 169g and measuring 7.7mm in thickness (with slightly thinner bezel). It's also durable, passing the 14 MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test categories for suitability in military operations and has a water-resistant rating of IP68.

The phone will be available in New Aurora Black, New Platinum Gray, New Moroccan Blue and Carmine Red with a matte finish which should be harder to stain and mark with fingerprints.

Price and availability TBC.
