Rumours and leaks have it that LG will be announcing a new flagship smartphone, called the V40 ThinQ, later this year. Now, the company has gone ahead and announced the launch date of the smartphone as October 4th. The unveiling will take place at the LG Science Park in Seoul, South Korea.


Alongside the confirmation of the launch date, LG has also shared a teaser video of the V40 ThinQ. The 10-second video highlights the camera capabilities of the handset and in a very subtle way, it revealed the triple camera setup that we have been hearing about for quite some time. It’s possible that one of the sensors could be a super-wide angle lens to capture a lossless image of the far distance.

While the specifications haven’t been announced yet, leaks suggest that the V40 ThinQ could be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 powered handset. It may ship with a notch-toting P-OLED display 6.3-inches in size and visibly thin bezels. For photography, apart from the triple rear cameras, the handset is likely to boast of dual front cameras with a true-depth sensor on the secondary camera for face unlock. Other rumoured features include RAM, 3,300mAh battery, and Quad DAC and DTS:X Surround Sound support. Lastly, a custom Android 9 Pie could power the device out of the box.

That’s all we know so far. But, we would have more details about the V40 ThinQ once it’s officially launched. Meanwhile, LG is not the only phonemaker hosting the event in October. In fact, Google Pixel 3 lineup is scheduled to launch on October 9, Huawei is all set to introduce its Mate 20-series on October 17th, and Xiaomi has confirmed that its Mi Mix 3 is arriving in the same month. We’ll bring you all the updates of the launch, so watch the space.
