The LG V40 ThinQ is coming to India. Finally. Amazon India has started teasing the LG V40 ThinQ with its own dedicated notify-me page, suggesting the device would be exclusively available for buying from the e-retail website. The notify-me page says that the LG V40 ThinQ will be arriving in India on January 20 although Amazon Prime members will be able to get it early on January 19 from 12PM.
The listing makes no mention of tentative pricing but confirms that LG is bringing only the top-end version of the LG V40 ThinQ with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage to India at this point of time.
The LG V40 ThinQ was first announced in October last year and is follow-up to the V30 from 2017. LG’s V-series are known for their impressive audio credentials, but with the LG V40 ThinQ, LG is also seemingly going over-board with cameras. The LG V40 ThinQ comes with not one, not two, not three, not four, but five cameras in all: three on the back and two on the front. The ThinQ moniker represents LG’s growing reliance on AI to make its devices stand out in the market.
In terms of core hardware, the LG V40 ThinQ comes with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED display (with notch) with support for HDR 10 and Dolby Vision, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage which is also expandable, Android 8.1 Oreo software and a 3,300mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3. The LG V40 ThinQ is IP68 and MIL-STD-81G certified and supports DTS-X surround sound audio.
The LG V40 ThinQ has three cameras on the rear: a standard 12MP sensor (f/1.5 aperture), a 12MP telephoto and another 16MP ultrawide sensor with 107-degree field-of-view. On the front, the LG V40 ThinQ has two cameras, a standard 8MP camera and another 5MP wide-angle camera for group selfies.
Clearly, the LG V40 ThinQ packs a lot of features. Not to mention, it packs lots of AI smarts as well. But it would be coming in an already overcrowded flagship market, and flagships with top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 are now on the horizon. A lot will therefore depend on the LG V40 ThinQ’s pricing which should be aggressive if LG’s approach with the LG G7+ ThinQ is anything to go by.
