LG's V40 ThinQ Compared to Apple's iPhone XS Max in New Video

This news is unlikely to come as a surprise to many, as LG has been teasing the handset for some time, last week confirming its P20 Pro-rivaling snapper array.

The three rear cameras also feature digital image stabilization and HDR for video recording with a resolution of up to 4K at 60fps. This means the LG G7 has a slightly sharper screen compared to the LG V40 with a pixel density of 564ppi over 538ppi.

With this triple camera setup and the dual camera at the front, the LG V40 now offers the greatest variety when it comes to taking photos in a variety of ways. It includes a 107-degree ultra wide lens from the 78-degree main lens to the 45-degree telephoto lens. The phone is capable to cover 3x worth of optical zoom.

LG said it has conducted a survey to find what customers truly want and found out that cameras and social media apps are the most frequently used features on smartphones. This suggests that the low-light performance will be pretty good.

LG V40 ThinQ is fueled by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and it keeps running on Android 8.1 Oreo. The first will save you $200 when you purchase using Verizon device payment. The leak further suggests that the three cameras will comprise of a standard angle lens, a super wide-angle lens, and a telephoto zoom lens. The wide-angle camera module has been brought forward from the LG G7 and constitutes of 16MP.

There also are several camera modes to make the best of the camera setup. There's also an option to record 1080p recordings at 240 fps for slow motion. The newly introduced Triple Preview feature helps you to capture three simultaneous shots from the cameras located on the rear.

Then we have the front camera setup which is a dual-camera setup with an 8MP main sensor that captures a wide 80-degree image which can be extended to 90-degree using the secondary 5MP sensor.

The LG V40 ThinQ looks very similar to Apple's iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The LG V40 ThinQ boasts a 6.4-inch OLED FullVision display. The phone also supports around 77.1% screen-to-body ratio and around 537 PPI density.

Powering the entire smartphone is the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, clubbed with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo with the company's custom launcher on top, which is not a pleasant news since Android 9 Pie is already out.

This is LG's first device to support fast wireless charging. All other tech manufacturers have already launched new flagship smartphones and this means that getting customers to buy a new smartphone is even more hard. The smartphone is equipped with a sleek design and powerful hardware specs that make the smartphone worth its $900 price tag. For more details, check out here.

As of yet, we don't have pricing for an unlocked model but stay tuned. That is actually the cheapest full retail price of any carrier that is carrying the LG V40 ThinQ. Would you be willing to get it?
