In May this year, LG launched the G7+ ThinQ, bringing it to India a few months later. However, that’s not the only top-of-the-line smartphone that it has in store for 2018. The company recently confirmed that it’ll be unveiling the V40 ThinQ on October 4, 2018, at an event in its home country of South Korea. As the launch date draws nearer, rumours and speculations about the upcoming flagship are also getting more frequent. Another piece of information has now surfaced online, giving us a clearer idea about the soon-to-be-announced smartphone’s hardware specifications.

The folks at Android Guides have managed to grab a picture highlighting the key specs of the V40 ThinQ, and they look great. If the picture is to be believed, LG V40 ThinQ will be powered by Qualcomm’s top-tier Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 8GB of RAM. If this is indeed the case, the V40 ThinQ will be the first LG smartphone to have this much RAM. As far as other specs go, we’re talking about a 6.4-inch QuadHD+ (most likely P-OLED, and with a notch) display wielding a resolution of 1440×3120 pixels, and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Interestingly, the picture also confirms that the V40 ThinQ will have a dual-camera system at the back, comprised of a 16-megapixel sensor and a 12-megapixel sensor. This goes against previous leaks, which have claimed that the smartphone will come with a triple camera setup on the rear. That said, the device may come with two cameras – 8-megapixel and 5-megapixel – on the front as well. The specs in the image also reveal that a 3,300mAh cell will power LG’s upcoming top dog.
