With the LG V40 release date approaching it’s time to start weighing all of your smartphone options in 2018. In this post, we’ll go over a few reasons why you should, and maybe shouldn’t, wait for the LG V40. We’ll also detail what we want to see from LG’s V40.
If you’re looking for a new phone there are plenty of excellent choices available now or coming soon. From the Galaxy Note 9 and OnePlus 6 to Google Pixel 2 XL. And even though the V30 and LG G7 ThinQ are great, the LG V40 should be near the top of your list.
Last year, the LG V30 was one of the best phones of the year. LG went with a premium metal design, nearly no bezels, and took Samsung and Apple head-on. We’re expecting more of the same with the V40, and it could be the best Android phone of 2018. Especially if it truly comes with five cameras.
LG V40 Leaks, Rumors, & Speculation
The LG V40 rumor mills started to churn thanks to LG themselves, who said moving forward they’ll only use high-end OLED screens in its V-series phones. That’s why the LG G7 and any other phone has an inferior LCD panel. Basically, the LG V40 will have a beautiful bezel-free AMOLED screen that can compete with the latest Galaxy or iPhone.
That’s also LG’s way of saying its flagship phone is the V40, not the LG G7 that was recently released.
According to one reliable source, LG is using the codename “Storm” likely because it’ll offer the perfect storm of specs, design and features.
That same source, the often reliable Evan @evleaks Blass, said we can expect a release date in late summer or early fall. Which lines up with releases from previous years. Especially if LG wants to compete with the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. And now, sources from Korea believe it’ll arrive on October 5th around the globe. This is a month later than the Note 9 to ease competition between the two.
LG’s next flagship phone will likely come with a big 6.1 to 6.5-inch display, a premium metal and glass design, small or no bezels, excellent cameras and a high-end audio experience. In fact, one report says it’ll boast three cameras on the back, and two on the front. That’s five total, something that’s truly unique. And they’ll do it before Samsung does with the Galaxy S10+ in 2019. So, if you’re trying to decide between the LG G7, the LG V35 or if you should wait, here are a few things to consider.
