There seems to be no stopping the LG V40 ThinQ leaks these days. Adding to the leaks is a set of new 3D renders that give us a clear look at what the upcoming flagship smartphone could look like.
The renders leaked by OnLeaks and Slashleaks show a device with a huge screen up front. In fact, the screen takes up the entire front part of the device, save for the wide notch at the top. This notch is believed to house the earpiece, and a dual-camera setup. The device features dimensions of 158.8×75.8×7.8mm.
The back panel is quite reflective, which could mean it will be made of glass. LG is said to have taken inspiration from the likes of Huawei P20 Pro, and Oppo R17 Pro in adding a triple-camera setup. The renders show a horizontally-aligned triple-camera setup placed at the back. Based on what we have come across before, one would be the primary sensor, the second an ultra wide-angle lens, and the third presumably a telephoto lens.
A video showing 3D CAD renders of the LG V40 ThinQ has also surfaced online that shows the device from all possible angles. You can see the 3.5mm audio jack, the USB Type-C port and speaker grill at the bottom. The left edge holds the volume rocker, and also a button that is likely to fire up the Google Assistant. A similar button was seen on the LG G7+ ThinQ.
Other rumored specifications include a 6.3-inch display with QHD+ (3120×1440 pixels) resolution, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC under the hood. For security, there’s a fingerprint sensor, and presumably face unlock feature.
There’s currently no official word on when LG plans to launch the V40 ThinQ smartphone. Though the company is hosting an event later this month at IFA 2018, it is unlikely to see the unveiling of the device. Instead, a rumor hints at a possible November 16 launch date for the device.
