After putting years of work into its V-series handsets, LG finally put out to market something powerful and modern with last year's V30. You can tell that the company fancies the look with its subsequent release of the V30S ThinQ and V35 ThinQ. While we are still a ways off from the release of a true successor, it looks like early rumors are suggesting that the next handset will up the ante quite a bit, featuring five cameras.
According to the folks at Android Police, the V40, or whatever it might be called, will have three camera sensors on the rear and two on the front. While it is unclear what the two cameras on the front will be used for, aside from selfies, there is the possibility that it will be used for facial recognition. The unannounced handset will also reportedly feature a cutout on the display similar to the look of the G7 ThinQ. The smartphone will most likely be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor and will also include a Quad DAC.
Naturally, this is exciting news but who knows if this will be enough to push LG's handset into the spotlight or, if similar to previous years, remain in the shadow of Samsung.
