The LG V40 ThinQ has been priced starting at $980 (Rs. 72,290 approx.) and will be available starting from October 18.

The camera is also the real star of the LG V40 and marks the biggest difference between this and the LG G7.

There's no confirmed United Kingdom release date just yet but it's likely that LG will be bringing its photo-obsessed flagship to our shores within the next few months.

The V40's design features a smooth matte glass finish which is a result of LG's proprietary Silky Blast process, which etches the tempered glass back with microscopic pits.

As for LG V40 ThinQ's case, the smartphone seamlessly merges still image and GIF-like moving photo into a single video.

The V40 ThinQ features three cameras on the rear and two on the front. The battery is a 3,300 mAh that can be charged wirelessly.

The display for LG V40 ThinQ is 6.4inch with QHD and OLED FullVision. The phone also supports around 77.1% screen-to-body ratio and around 537 PPI density. All four carriers of course offer a variety of finance and lease plans to spread out the cost over a few years, and we'd expect to see some other deals in the works as well. But if the G7 were used IPS-matrix, the V40 received a POLED panel with a diagonal of 6.4 inches. It's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor and comes with 6GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of storage. It also supports fast charging Quick Charge 3.0 feature that will charge phone 50% in just 36 minutes. It also carries an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.

LG V40 ThinQ rear camera module features three lenses - 16-megapixel super wide-angle, 12-megapixel standard angle and 12-megapixel telephoto. The dual front camera has an 8-megapixel primary camera with f/1.9 aperture and a secondary 5-megapixel wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture.

Finally there's Bokeh effect on both the front and back cameras with the ability to adjust the background blur after you've taken the image.

12MP telephoto: This all-new image sensor with f/2.4 aperture amounts to 2x optical zoom and allows a photographer to click shots from a far distance without losing the quality. The rear gets a 12MP main sensor with OIS, f/1.5, PDAG, and 1.4-micron pixel size that shoots outstanding photos. It features LG's AI Cam too, which uses artificial intelligence to deliver the best shot possible, something the V40 also offers. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box along with LG UX 7.0+ UI running on top.

The official update with Slow Motion video, AR Emojis and September 1, 2018, Android Patch for Samsung Galaxy S8 and ...

About the price, the LG V40 ThinQ comes with a price tag of $900 or Rs 66,370 for the base 6GB/64GB internal storage variant but since LG has stated earlier that it will bring down the cost of LG ThinQ smartphones below Rs 50,000, it will be a head-on competition to OnePlus 6T and others in the segment.
