LG V40 ThinQ at a glance
When will the LG V40 ThinQ come out? Announced 3 October 2018, Australian availability February 2019
What’s new about the LG V40 ThinQ? Triple cameras, ThinQ AI integration, 6.4 inch OLED display
How much will the LG V40 ThinQ cost? $1,299 outright

LG's second flagship phone for 2018 faces stiff competition in the premium space, but the use of triple cameras and LG's own ThinQ AI platform could give it an edge.

LG's fortunes in the mobile phone space have dipped up and down in recent years, from the interesting-but-flawed modular LG G5 through to this year's LG G7 ThinQ. LG's V-series phones have generally carried a high level of both innovation and style, and this looks to carry forward with the LG V40 ThinQ

  • Retains the headphone jack

Camera

  • Triple cameras

Performance
