LG, once a well known name in the smartphone segment, has lost to Chinese smartphone makers OnePlus and Huawei, in the premium segment and with V40 ThinQ, it is trying to salvage its position as a technology innovator. The device is equipped with a glass front and back that includes a little notch at the top of the front display for housing some sensors and the front-facing camera.

In-camera department, LG V40 ThinQ has got a triple 12-megapixel standard, 16-megapixel wide-angle f/1.9 (107 degrees), and 12-megapixel telephoto f/2.2 triple rear cameras. The smartphone comes with a triple camera setup at the back of the device and features two cameras in the front. Of course, there's also regular Portrait and Portrait Lightning modes available. 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 front of the phone has dual camera set-up with 8MP standard camera of focal length, f1.9 and the wide-angle camera of 5MP with focal length f2.2.
