Just yesterday, we heard that LG was planning on launching it’s flagship V40 ThinQ smartphone in India and today, a banner Amazon India’s homepage confirms this news. The LG V40 ThinQ will go on sale exclusively on Amazon India from January 20, although the price hasn’t been revealed yet. Amazon Prime members will be able to book their phone on January 19 itself, from 12pm onwards. The banner also shows that the phone will be available in two colours — Moroccan Blue and Platinum Grey.
The LG V40 ThinQ launched with Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box but considering the G7 ThinQ is expected to receive the Android 9 Pie update in Q1 this year, it might just launch with Android Pie out-of-the-box. The phone sports a 6.4-inch QHD+ (1440×3120 pixels) OLED FullVision panel with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The phone is powered by the flagship octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS2.1 inbuilt storage. Storage on the handset is expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB).
The V40 ThinQ sports a unique triple camera setup. The primary setup at the back consists of a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/1.5 aperture, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor with an f/1.9 aperture and a the third 12-megapixel telephoto camera with an f/2.4 aperture. The three cameras lets you make use of a Triple Preview feature, which lets users take three simultaneous shots from the three rear cameras so you can pick the best among them.
