TL;DR
  • A new leak appears to have detailed the LG V40 ThinQ’s camera setup.
  • The speculation suggests front-facing camera will have a regular and a wide-angle lens.
  • As previous reports have already indicated, the rear-camera setup could consist of a telephoto, ultra-wide angle, and regular lens.

We have heard a lot about the LG V40 ThinQ’s five cameras already. However, a recent tweet by Evan Blass appears to have revealed new details about the dual front-facing camera setup.

Blass claims the dual front-facing camera setup will be made up of a standard and a wide-angle lens. He also added that the rear camera trio will be made up of a standard, telephoto, and super-wide angle lens (like LG has already teased in a promotional video).

Having a regular and a wide-angle lens makes a lot of sense on a selfie camera. A wide-angle lens allows you to fit more of a scene into your photo than a regular lens, even if the camera is the same distance from the subject. This can be useful for group selfies or if you want a selfie that includes a lot of the background.

While it appears that the LG V40 ThinQ won’t get a depth sensor or a telephoto lens on the front, it may still be able to take portrait selfies using the camera’s software, just like on the LG G7 ThinQ’s single selfie camera.

Blass didn’t mention megapixels or any other selfie camera details. However, a previous leak suggested that the front-facing camera setup will include one 8MP lens and one 5MP lens. The rear camera setup is said to be made up of two 12MP lenses and a 16MP lens.

Should the rumors be true, the LG V40 ThinQ wouldn’t be the first LG phone to get a regular and a wide angle front facing camera setup; the LG V10 also had one.

We won’t have to wait too long for confirmation of the camera details (and other specs), as LG will officially reveal the V40 ThinQ on October 3.
