Fresh off the back of the LG G7 ThinQ, the Korean company is hard at work on the full blown successor to the LG V30/35. Early rumors are promising, with LG set to bring a triple rear camera to the mix as well as going virtually bezel-less.

LG is yet to have a serious hit smartphone on its hands. It has been close a few times, with the G6, G7 ThinQ and V30/35, and although generally well-received, each has had a few quirks that have held them back from gaining widespread acclaim. The forthcoming LG 40 ThinQ could finally change LG's fortunes for the better if the latest rumors are any indication.

As with previous rumors, a triple camera configuration for the rear is all but guaranteed. According to Korean site ETNews, the specifications will include a 20MP primary module, a 16MP wide-angle module and a 13MP telephoto shooter. The front will feature dual-cameras that will support 3D facial recognition. Compared the the LG G7 ThinQ, which has an 83 percent screen-to-body ratio, the LG V40 could have a screen-to-body ratio as high as 90 percent.

A key detail missing from the early rumors is whether the device will sport an pOLED display as with the V30/35 or whether it will sport an LCD display like the G-line. The pOLED display on the V30/35 was met with mixed reviews, with some suggesting it looked a generation or two behind Samsung's current Super AMOLED panels. With LG tipped to supply the OLED panels for Apple's larger iPhone 6.5-inch iPhone X sequel we can only hope it will be a next-gen OLED panel.

All will be revealed when it launches in October, as expected.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
