It was the Huawei P20 Pro that shook the smartphone photography by introducing the premiere triple camera setup. Reports are coming from South Korea revealing that Japanese tech giant LG is working on its next flagship device dubbed as LG V40 with the same triple camera setup on the rear but added up by a dual lens setup on the front. That means we are nearing to a device with five cameras in total.
This has been reported by Android Police through their inside sources that the South Korean tech giant has plans to revolutionize smartphone photography with its next flagship. However, LG will stick to its wide-angle lens + standard lens configuration for two of the rear cameras but the job of the third sensor remains unknown.
LG V40 with Five Cameras
The report claims that one of the sensors on the front or even both will capture details of the face for 3D face unlock. It is also likely to introduce a notch on the front to house both front sensors. However, if you don’t really like a notch, you may hide it if you want.
Although we don’t have any information of the display panel as of yet but it is expected to see an OLED panel. Our assumptions are based on the facts that LG used an IPS LCD screen for the LG G7 ThinQ while the LG V35 ThinQ has a P-OLED display, so the V series is likely to continue with an OLED panel.
On the other hand, the report mentions some other core features of the LG V40 including a quad DAC, a dedicated Google Assistant button and the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC. So, basically, we are looking at an LG G7 ThinQ with additional camera.
Since the cameras are the big deal, therefore we expect something revolutionary by LG here. Contrarily, Google has proven its supremacy even with a single camera of Pixel 2.
