LG’s upcoming flagship device V40 ThinQ will be home to five cameras – three on the back and two at the front. The company has already sent out invites to launch the device at an event on October 3.
The invitation reads “take five,” expecting to be teasing a total of five cameras. If that happens, the V40 could be the first smartphone to include five cameras. And while that combination would be new, however creating such as set up is not unique. Huawei in the P20 Pro included a triple-camera system and we have also witnessed dual-camera systems on the front from other manufacturers too.
The increased number of cameras allows for some fancy processing effects, but mostly, are designed to offers different zoom capabilities. And while LG’s V-series of smartphones are targeted at users who aim to create various types of media, however that message has become hazy over time, the introduction of additional cameras could restore the LG’s focus on V series.
The V40 is expected to have a Snapdragon 845 processor and a quad DAC — both things are present in LG’s last flagships — though it’s rumoured to jump up to a 6.3-inch display with a notch, which would be new.
