The upcoming LG V40 is not official yet and the latest 360-degree video that surfaced online is, unfortunately, an unofficial render based on the details — mainly physical dimensions — that were leaked so far. The handset shown in this video comes with a wide notch and a tri-camera main image shooter, just as expected.

Those who were getting ready for the LG G8 should know that something that might turn out to be even more interesting is supposed to launch in the meantime. The upcoming LG V-series handset is supposed to come out as the LG V40 ThinQ with three cameras on the back.

The interesting part is that LG apparently has lower expectations when it comes to the LG V40 sales volume compared to the 1.5 million LG V30 units sold. Insiders familiar with the matter revealed that one million LG V40 units will be made and the initial batch consists of 500,000 handsets. Obviously, this might also mean that the LG V40 will be a very expensive product and the company might focus on selling a lot of G8 flagships instead.

The video below does not reveal anything about what's to expect in terms of features, but we will surely find out more in the coming weeks. For now, we know that the display will have 6.4 inches and will use the P-OLED technology. Obviously, all these should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being.

The LG V40 ThinQ is apparently scheduled to be unveiled in October, so there's enough time for more leaks, rumors, and — hopefully — some official teasers.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
