Penta Camera setup on a mobile phone is one of the biggest talk of the smartphone market after Nokia 9 PureView surfaced online. Building on the buzz, South Korean consumer electronics major LG have all geared up to bring the company’s flagship phone V40 ThinQ to India later this week. LG V40 ThinQ will go on sale on Amazon on January 20. The phone will be available in two
The most prominent new feature of the LG V40 ThinQ is the camera setup. The LG V40 ThinQ smartphone is equipped with five cameras. The camera setup at the back features a standard lens, wide-angle lens and telephoto lens, while phone’s standard 8MP and 5MP wide-angle cameras will help you get everyone in the frame for a perfect selfie. It’s important to understand that while the V40 ThinQ is only touching Indian markets now, it has been in play for a good four months now. And LG has been working round the clock to update and improve the AI software in the camera setup.
LG’s e-commerce partner Amazon has confirmed that the new V40 ThinQ will be available on exclusively on its site from January 19 at 12:00 pm initially for Prime members and will go on open sale in the following day on January 20.
An interesting attribute of the phone is that it is also powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm-based camera app, which can intuitively identify the scenarios—beach, grassland, hills and others and automatically adjust camera settings to get the best possible image.
Besides the top-notch cameras, LG V40 ThinQ comes with highly durable build quality. It has passed military-level-durability MIL-STD-810G certification and is capable of handling wide-range of environment conditions that include: low pressure for altitude testing; exposure to high and low temperatures plus temperature shock (both operating and in storage); rain (including wind-blown and freezing rain); humidity, fungus, salt fog for rust testing; sand and dust exposure; explosive atmosphere; leakage; acidic atmosphere, acceleration; shock and transport shock; gunfire vibration; and random vibration.
The V40 ThinQ is no different from any of the flagship phones of 2018. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage space. Under the hood, the ThinQ runs on a 3,300mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and fast wireless charging.
Furthermore, it also boasts IP68 water-and-dust resistant certification, meaning LG phone user can take it for a dip in the swimming pool, provided you don’t dive deeper than five feet and for close to 30 minutes only.
