LG V40 ThinQ is finally here. Most U.S. carriers will begin taking pre-orders on October 12th, so if you want to guarantee yourself this Android 8.1-powered phone on launch day, you'll have that chance.

On the front, the device sports 8MP primary sensor with f/1.9 aperture and a 5MP secondary sensor with f/2.2 aperture. Wired charging supports Qualcomm's QuickCharge 3.0. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo with the company's custom launcher on top, which is not a pleasant news since Android 9 Pie is already out. This is all for the LG V40 ThinQ, what are your thoughts on the device? The smartphone measures 158.8 x 75.7 x 7.6 mm and sports an aluminum frame on the back and a Gorilla Glass 5 protective layer on the front. If this is about number game then LG goes numero uno with the launch of V40 ThinQ.

All the camera sensors feature digital image stabilization for video along with HDR recording.

Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port.

The V40 ThinQ is also created to withstand dust and water according to IP68 standards as well as MIL-ST-810G certification. It also comes equipped with a 32-bit QuadDAC for a sonic boost sound. The V40 ThinQ is priced between $900 and $980 in the United States, and will be available on October 18. The flagship Android smartphone will be available from October 18. However, the company hasn't announced availability for other regions yet.

There are four different finishes available: New Aurora Black, New Platinum Gray, New MoroccanBlue and Carmine Red. Interestingly, LG is offering a 256GB micro-SD card as well as DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal to select buyers who pre-order the smartphone at marginally higher price. LG, once a well known name in the smartphone segment, has lost to Chinese smartphone makers OnePlus and Huawei, in the premium segment and with V40 ThinQ, it is trying to salvage its position as a technology innovator.
