Report: LG V40 to have all the cameras and face unlock tech

By reviews / 26. June 2018
LG G7

The rumoured LG V40 smartphone will have a grand total of five camerasthe most of any mainstream smartphone yetaccording to new reports.

An Android Police source says follow up to the LG V35 ThinQ will have a pair of front-facing snappers and a tri-camera array on the back of the phone.

The source also says at least one of the front-facing cameras will be equipped with Face Unlock-style tech enabling users to access their device simply by looking at the phone.

The three cameras on the back of the device would match the Huawei P20 Pro, if LGs reported plan comes to fruition. They would include a wide lens and LGs signature ultra wide lens, the report says.

The purpose of the third sensor is not identified by the source. However, other phone makers have included zoom lenses and monochrome sensors recently. Others have been designed to accentuate depth of field effects like bokeh portraits.

However, whether adding more cameras will contribute to an uptick in quality remains to be seen. While the dual camera on the LG G7 ThinQ offered some improvements, the AI features left a lot to be desired.

Another notch

LG is also planning to use a notch or the V40 display just like the LG G7 ThinQ. However, as with the current flagship youll be able to nullify the effect in the settings, if you dont wish to have your status bar interrupted by a cut-out display.

Indeed Android Polices source says the V40 will look a lot like ascaled-up G7”, which will be powered by Qualcomms Snapdragon 845.

Whether LG will use OLED tech for the display for will stick with the LCD tech deployed on the G7 earlier this year remains to be seenBack in May LG hinted the OLED tech is being saved for themore innovativeV-Series handsets.

Theres no official word yet on when LG might release the LG V40, but the IFA tech show is just around the corner at the end of August.
