With the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launching locally and the Huawei Mate 20 set for debut next month, you may have forgotten about another smartphone maker’s upcoming device – the LG V40 ThinQ.

The flagship phone serves as the South Korean manufacturer’s offering for the second half of the year, with the LG V40 ThinQ set to be officially unveiled at an event in New York City.

At the time the only details known about the device at the was its name, the V40 ThinQ, and the fact that it would feature five cameras in total.

Now LG’s Korean blog has revealed a bit more information about the V40, including a pair of images and a video offering a preview of what’s to come.

While we have not seen the phone in full, it looks to be a lot like its predecessor, although there seems to be a new red colour option on the way.

Added to this is a 6.4″ display with the now usual screen notch featuring. The aforementioned five camera setup will see a trio on the rear and a pair of lenses up front.

The back option will more than likely be akin to the setup that Huawei debuted for its P20 and P20 Pro, but LG may orientate the makeup of the lenses slightly differently. There should be a normal RGB option, along with a super wide-angle one, as well as a far larger megapixel lens being added to the mix.

As for the rest of the specifications little has been revealed at this stage, so we’re unsure what kind of Qualcomm silicon the LG V40 ThinQ will be running. Also amiss is the kind of AI functionalities that will be added to the mix, with the previous two ThinQ devices focusing on image recognition for taking pictures for the most part.

While the this week’s teaser helps to build a bit of buzz around the LG V40 ThinQ, we hope the company keeps all other details under wrap until 3rd October.
