Something is brewing in the South Korean OEM’s manufacturing wing and it’s going to be great. With the due release of LG G7 ThinQ and reports of V35 ThinQ already in production, LG is rumoured to be working on another major flagship, an addition to LG’s V-series. The company is really working hard to change its failings in the Android mobile space this year.
The ever-reliable leaker Evan Blass didn’t fail to tip us on the details of the upcoming flagship. He tweeted recently that the name of the smartphone is LG V40 ThinQ — codenamed “Storm” — which will be the V-series follow up of LG G7 ThinQ. There hasn’t been much information on the release date but according to the V-series custom, we should be expecting it in late summer or early fall of this year.
There hasn’t been any information on the what the LG V40 ThinQ will offer but more details will surface as the release date draws nearer. Since it’s going be the successor of LG V30, we expect it to feature the latest Qualcomm Stadium chipset — Snapdragon 845 processor. A list of phones that was expected to feature the chipset was released on the Chinese social network Weibo late 2017, and LG V40 was on the list. We are yet to see any renders, rumours, leaks or official announcement on any of the V40 ThinQ features or specifications.
Due to the poor market appeal of LG G6 and huge losses from the mobile division faced by the company last year, LG announced earlier this year that it will stop the strict yearly product release cycle. It has stayed true to its words with three flagship phones including the LG V40 ThinQ set to be released this year after the launch of the LG V30S ThinQ.
We are sure to get more information as the week progresses and the release date draws closer.
