LG V40 ThinQ: your next phone?
It’s officially here folks! With an interesting feature too!
Yes folks, LG recently announced its new phone, the LG V40 ThinQ with one interesting twist: 5 cameras. You read that right… 5 cameras in one device!! Plus other upgrades were introduced too. Could this be the device you’ve been waiting for? Read on for more info!
First off, the LG V40 ThinQ has a 6.4” QHD+ OLED FullVision Display ™ and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It’s got a notch too by the way. While the breakdown of the cameras are 3 at the back while 2 on the front.
The 3 rear cameras shoot at the same time with the following photos: standard, telephoto zoom and super wide-angle.
While the front shoots 2 selfie photos at the same time: standard and wide (mostly for a huge group photos)
The audio is tuned with Meridian giving it a boombox speaker, Quad DAC and DTS:X 3D Surround Sound. It’s also one of the few that still has a headphone jack!
Available in Aurora Black and Moroccan Blue in the US.
Release will be on October 18.
There’s also initial reviews out! Let’s check them out:
CNET’s Lynn La gave it a 8.8 over 10 as it gives out a number of photo options and still easy to hold even with the huge screen. Also one of the very few devices that has a headphone jack.
Android Central’s Andrew Martonik gives it 4 out of 5 stars highlighting the perks of the wide-angle camera as a favorite perk to mix up different photos. Combination of the 3 cameras with LG’s software make the device a downright fun phone to shoot with.
The Verge’s Dan Seifert gives the device a good 8 over 10 score highlighting fast performance and great camera system. While cons can be that LG is still quite slow with software updates.
While Business Insider’s Antonio Villas-Boas says it has “the most versatile camera system on a smartphone to date” as he talks about the cameras of the LG device. Its DAC has better sounds compared to other premium smartphones which can be more evident with music better for it.
Then BGR’s Chris Smith says maybe just hold your horses a bit as there may be a bit more upcoming surprises down the road…that might be worth your while.
Android Authority’s David Imel says the battery of 3,300mAh is a bit small for their liking given the big screen (we can help solve that problem though 😉 )
TechRadar’s Matt Swider gives it a 3.5 over 5 stars as it may have five fun cameras but may not be always the best and the battery’s a bit of a turnoff (we got that last one covered!)
Ok folks, we haven’t forgotten about the price. It’ll range from $900-$980 and may also depend on your carrier:
US Cellular: $900
That’s it for the rundown of the new device and initial reviews! Have you decided to buy? That almost $1,000 price isn’t a walk in the park so it’s best to keep is safe at all cost!
