The LG V40 is expected to see a release in mid-October since we’re just a month before October, it’s natural to see the first leaks of the smartphone popping out. We first saw the upcoming LG phablet several days ago, when the first renders surfaced showing the handset notch and the triple-camera setup. Today a new set of renders and a 360º video give us another glimpse on the smartphone.
These renders are reportedly based on factory CAD blueprints, so they should be pretty accurate with what we’re going to see in the final form of LG V40. According to the folks at @SlashLeaks, the LG V40 sports a 6.3-inch display – 0.3-inches larger than its predecessor – and will be one of the largest LG smartphones to the date. The crown of biggest, however, will still be owned by the 5-year-old LG G Flex.
The phone reportedly measures 158.8 x 75.8 x 7.8mm, so it’s going to be a bit taller, wider and thicker than the last year’s LG V30 and V35. If these dimensions are accurate, as we mentioned earlier on this post, the LG V40 will sit as the third-largest high-end LG smartphone to the date.
At this moment, there are no more details other than what those renders reveal. Of course, this smartphone is set to feature a triple-camera setup on the rear. However, the capabilities of these 3 sensors haven’t been specified until the moment. Also, the handset will feature a dual front-facing camera setup on the front. 5 cameras in the total.
The handset also retains the loved 3.5mm headphone jack, while also brings the newer USB Type-C standard. The handset should follow the current portfolio of flagships and brings the Snapdragon 845 inside, with a RAM amount that should start at 6GB of RAM. When it comes to storage, we still need to wait to see if it will pack a regular amount of storage or if it will fly higher like the Note9 and start at 128GB of Storage. Last, but not least, we expect the handset to be the first LG smartphone to ship with Android 9.0 Pie right out-the-box, in October, we expect nothing less than that.
