It appears that LG has learnt from the low sales number of the LG G7 and has now set modest goals for its new device. The V40 flagship will most-likely launch in October and is expected to receive competition from the next iPhone model that is also expected to launch around the same time.
The 3 million internal sales goal set by LG for the G7 was far from met, and so the company has decided to set just a 500,000 units sales goal for the V40, which is pretty modest.
Two versions of the V40 are expected to be released: the premium “Phoenix” and the less decorated “Falcon”. The premium version was shopped to Google – which they rejected, and that is probably where the Pixel 3XL’s design and specs where coiled out from.
There is also a news tip that the first 5G device by LG–the V45–will be made with parts from the G7 and V40. The design and camera modules are also expected to be from the V40, including the 5G antenna which may make the device look a bit thicker.
LG V40 Leaked Specs
The LG V40 reportedly sports a 6.3-inch display which is just 0.3 inches larger than the former LG V30 and V35 screens. Thus, making the phone outstanding as it likely measures at 158.8 x 75.8 x 7.8 mm.
According to image render, it appears the LG V40 will feature dual front-facing camera, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Some sources have confirmed that the handset will most likely be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset with massive RAM and internal storage space. Additional, the new Android 9 Pie is also lined-up to run pre-loaded on this device.
