We’ve known for some months that the forthcoming LG V40 will feature five cameras. What we didn’t know is what function each camera module served. Until now. Evan Blass is back with another leak, this time detailing the functionality of each.

The leaks for the LG V40 ThinQ have been coming thick and fast for a few months now. Even LG has started officially spilling the beans on the device ahead of its official unveiling. While we’ve known for some time that the LG V40 will be the first flagship device to sport five cameras in total, we have been wondering what they all do. It turns out, each has a specific function and may not necessarily work in tandem.

Serial leaker Evan Blass has given us a look at the function of each camera module for the first time. The rear of the LG V40 features a triple camera set up like the Huawei P20 Pro. In this instance, the first of the three lenses takes standard photos. The second takes super-wide-angle shots while the third adds telephoto zoom functionality for the first time, presumably with optical zoom.

The front camera arrangement functions in the same way as most other makers who offer dual front-facing cameras. This is to say that one of the two lenses shoots standard selfies while the other shoots wide angle groufie shots. To have all of these types of camera capabilities in the one device certainly advances smartphone capabilities.

As for the specifications of each camera module including megapixel counts and aperture sizes, it looks like that might be something LG gets to reveal for itself on October 3.
