The rumoured LG V40 smartphone will have a grand total of five cameras – the most of any mainstream smartphone yet – according to new reports.
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 LG’s reported plan comes to fruition. They would include a wide lens and LG’s 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.
LG is also planning to use a notch or the V40 display just like the LG G7 ThinQ. However, as with the current flagship you’ll be able to nullify the effect in the settings, if you don’t wish to have your status bar interrupted by a cut-out display.
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 seen. Back in May LG hinted the OLED tech is being saved for the “more innovative” V-Series handsets.
