LG should announce a new flagship smartphone V40 ThinQ on the third of October.

LG V40 ThinQ will sport a triple camera in the back, as shown in the teaser. The LG V40 ThinQ reportedly measures 158.7×75.8×7.79mm and weighs in at 169 grams.

So, what do you think of the V40 ThinQ?

The leak comes courtesy of Evan Blass, who has an excellent track record when it comes to releasing information early about unannounced devices. The new phone features a whopping 5 cameras, with three on the back and two on the front, as well as a 6.4 inch display.

The 30-second teaser shared by LG on its official social channels shows the presence of a horizontally stacked triple camera setup on its rear panel and three color variants of the device.

All in all, the confirmation by LG are quite consistent with what we've heard regarding the phone previously. LG is going for a horizontal camera arrangement, rather than a vertical one, as seen in the Huawei P20 Pro.

Other than that, the new press render reveals an extra button on the LG V40 ThinQ, which is likely used to summon Google Assistant on a whim. Ahead of its official launch, image of LG's upcoming flagship device has been leaked online. However, a previous LG video gave a pretty big hint that the phone would have a regular, optical, and wide-angle lens.

Under the hood, the LG V40 ThinQ is said to come with Snapdragon 845 SoC which will be mated to 6 GB RAM. The shape and size of the notch are similar to the G7, but there are two front-facing cameras in it.

LG's post didn't give much else away in terms of specs or features, but it did let us know a bit more about the phone's design.
