As we get closer to the end of the year, more details about the major new smartphones of the second half of 2018 begin to emerge. In addition to Apple, Huawei and Google, LG should finally present its flagship V-line with no more than five cameras throughout the body and design still similar to previous models.
The LG V40 was leaked less than a week ago by leaker Steve Hommerstoffer (@OnLeaks on Twitter) revealing all the design details in high quality renders plus a video showing all sides of the top of the line . Now it looks like we have new information regarding the device hardware!
According to more recent information, the V line will continue to give full focus to its cameras and extremely advanced software, proof of this is the diversity of lenses in the three rear cameras: 12 MP, 16 MP and 12 MP sensors with different functionalities: one ( it was not specified which) will have telephoto lens and another will maintain the wide-angle lens of the previous models, with this LG intends to make the users have all the necessary set for any situation.
