For the name, the rumor mill is juggling between the names LG V40 and LG V40 ThinQ (following the other latest releases of the tech-company along with their AI).
Going back to the renders, they seem to agree with Android Authority’s report that this device will be a mix of the V35 Thin Q and G7 ThinQ. The estimated dimensions floating around right now are 158.8 x 75.8 x 7.8-8.2mm and it appears this will also be all-glass with a 6.3-in display (most likely an OLED screen). This phone is said to be 0.3-inches larger than the LG V30 ThinQ.
Speaking of screen, you might not like it, but it’s still happening… a notch on the display. The Apple iPhone X trend is still alive and well in 2018 and it doesn’t look to be going away with the new LG device. The good news is, the LG notch is rumored to hold 2 selfie shooter cameras.

The LG V40 [ThinQ] will also have a horizontal 3-camera set up at the back (this is a first for LG phones). So all in all, if the rumors are correct, this device has a total of 5 CAMERAS in its arsenal! There’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack which may feature the Hi-Fi Quad DAC audio and a side-mounted power button and a dedicated Assistant button.
As for the launch date, LG senior official Lee Myung-bak said it could be early-mid October (like October 18). Although the display renders show a November 14 date so there may be a possibility it may be between that timeline. However, Android Authority estimates a September launch with the phone being available as early as October 5. We’ll keep our eyes peeled on that.
