LG has introduced its latest smartphone, the V40 ThinQ, which is packed with five cameras.

The latest in the V series, and a follow-up to the V35, the new phone features a more dramatic change in its design, including an OLED FullVision display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 6.4” QHD+ display.

Also included is DTS:X 3D surround sound, which brings spatial sound to the V40. The chipset is a Snapdragon 845, it comes with 6GB RAM, 64GB storage, and a 3300mAh battery.

The five-camera set-up means three rear cameras: a 12MP standard, 16MP wide angle, and a 12MP telephoto. There’s an 8MP standard and a 5MP wide camera on the front, so pretty much any type of pic you fancy snapping is covered.

“Have you ever taken a photo of your child and wished you had more room to include friends and family? Have you taken a photo at a ball game and been frustrated that your smartphone couldn’t zoom in tight enough to clearly capture a pitch? With the V40 ThinQ photo, regret is a thing of the past,” boasted LG.

“The three rear cameras let you take photos at three different focal ranges simultaneously, so you never miss an angle and can choose the best photo to share or print.

“The telephoto zoom lens gives you twice the reach of the standard lens without sacrificing image quality. The super wide-angle camera makes it easy to take expansive panoramas and group shots so no one ever feels left out. To make sure your photos are as good as the pros, LG introduces new AI technology that adjusts your subject’s position and frames your picture to help you create an artistically balanced photo. It even adjusts the exposure and shutter speed to enhance your shot.”

LG V40 ThinQ will be available for preorder in the US on Verizon starting 11th October in Aurora Black and Verizon-exclusive Moroccan Blue.

The official LG V40 release date is Thursday, 18th October. There’s currently no confirmation on UK pricing, but in the US it is expected to cost between $900–$980.
