    The V40 ThinQ is LGís new five-camera smartphone

    Thatís two on the front and three on the rear. LGís already teased the upcoming flagship quite a bit in the lead up to todayís announcement. Understandably so. Itís hard for a company like this to stand out in a world full of Apples and Samsungs ó even with all of those lenses.

    The South Korean company has never been afraid to push the envelope, and many of its smartphone innovations have become commonplace in recent years. Of course, LGís not the first to bring a handset with three lenses to market ó Huawei had the company beat by several months on that front with the P20.

    Official images have been floating around for some time, but until now we havenít actually seen them in action ó or known precisely what each of the lenses does. Well, not officially, at least. The breakdown of the three horizontally oriented lenses is this: standard, super wide-angle and 2x optical zoom.

    One click of a button and you can capture all three at once. Or you can just toggle between the three shots in preview mode. Thatís really the easiest way, but it doesnít afford you the bizarre Triple Shot function, which offers up an animated transition between shots. Iím still trying to figure out the real-world use for that bit.

    Itís certainly less useful/interesting than the Cine Shot bit we wrote about earlier this week. Thatís something I could certainly see myself using again, if only to fulfill my longtime goal of capturing the essence of Anthony singing karaoke. One day technology will catch up. Or maybe weíre just flying too close to the sun here.

    The two front-facing cameras are 8 and 5 megapixels, taking standard and wide-angle shots, respectively. The phone retains the AI picture-taking features LG rolled out for its handsets back at Mobile World Congress, which adjust automatically, based on the sort of scenes theyíre shooting.

    The V40ís got a 6.4-inch QuadHD display, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (plus a microSD slot) and sports a Snapdragon 845. Oh, and yep, thereís a headphone jack.
