LG on Thursday launched a new premium smartphone with five cameras. While LG has struggled to release a phone with the "it" factor to really take on Samsung and Apple, if you're looking for something that can deliver a phenomenal multimedia experience, this might just be it.

The LG V40 ThinQ features a 6.4-inch (3120 x 1440 pixels) FullVision OLED display.

Launch dates, pricing and additional details for LG V40 ThinQ will be announced later.

The phone has triple camera setup with 12 megapixels primary sensor with f/1.5 aperture, 16 megapixels secondary super wide camera with f/1.9 aperture and 12 megapixels telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture. You can leverage all of their abilities individually or even combine them with a neat camera trick LG has bundled.

All three camera sensors also feature digital image stabilization for video recording along with HDR recording.

The LG V40 ThinQ is powered by a 3300mAh battery with support for fast charging. The South Korean company launched the G7 ThinQ in March, followed by the LG V35 in May and now the V40 ThinQ has arrived to succeed the V35 and sit alongside the G7.

As for memory setup, the smartphone comes with 6GB of RAM coupled with a 64GB internal memory space which can be expanded with the help of microSD card, as per requirement.

LG says it has improved the pixel size of the main rear camera by 40% compared to the predecessor, LG V30. It has a dimension of 158.8×75.7×7.6mm weighing at 169 grams which is still slightly lighter than OnePlus 6' 177 grams.

Elsewhere, the V40 ThinQ packs an iPhone XS Max-rivaling 6.4in 3,120x1140 OLED Full Vision display, and while it's not completely bezel-free, LG boasts that its bottom bezel that is 1.6mm thinner than that found on the V30. That said, the most impressive feature of this flagship smartphone is the triple rear and dual front camera setup.

The high-end device called as "The LG V40 ThinQ" has been a subject of greater interest by some users who like to spend huge chunks on such a phone. It available in Aurora Black, Platinum Grey, Carmine Red, and Moroccan Blue color options.

The LG V40 ThinQ will cost between $900 and $980 depending on which carrier you purchase it though, and it'll be available in the United States starting October 18th, 2018. With V40 ThinQ, the company is trying to set the two devices apart by adding extra camera sensors that aid in a different kind of photography.

The most interesting feature by far however is Cine Shot which uses all three lenses to take a photo/movie hybrid. The V40 ThinQ is going to be a big 'un. Also on the rear panel is a fingerprint scanner. LG V40 ThinQ is IP68 dust and water resistant.

There's still the highly-touted LG AI features on the cameras, so the phone will be able to intelligently adjust scene settings for you while you're shooting.
