The LG V40 ThinQ will arrive in Australia in February 2019

Alex Kidman 20 December 2018 NEWS

LG's new flagship phone has a serious photography focus, but it's still a few months away from landing down under.

LG actually announced the LG V40 ThinQ back in October, but at the time, it had no announced plans for Australian availability.

If you've been hanging out for the LG V40 ThinQ, we've got some good news for you... and some not so good news.

The good news, obviously, is that the LG V40 ThinQ will officially launch here in Australia. The bad news is that it won't arrive until next February, at an outright price of $1,299 through JB Hi-Fi and MobileCiti.

That puts the LG V40 ThinQ arriving in market around the time we're expecting to see the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro officially announced, which could make the V40 ThinQ a somewhat harder sell, especially at that asking price.

As you might expect for a phone with LG's own AI-centric ThinQ branding, AI-assisted photography is a key selling point for the LG V40 ThinQ, with a 12MP f/1.5 sensor with 1.4μm sized pixels, a serious jump up from the light sensing capabilities of the LG G7 ThinQ. That's matched with a 16MP f/1.9 super wide angle lens for your landscape photography needs and a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto lens for zoom and portrait photography modes.

The LG V40 ThinQ as sold in Australia will come in either New Platinum Gray or New Moroccan Blue finishes, which means we're not seeing the Carmine Red or New Aurora Black colours here.
