The newly launched LG V40 ThinQ is now available for purchase in India. The e-commerce platform Amazon.in has started taking the orders of the new LG phone while the deliveries will start from January 24 in India. The LG V40 ThinQ was initially launched in the month of October in the previous year.
In India, the LG V40 ThinQ price comes with a price tag of Rs. 60,000 (MRP) but it has been listed at Rs. 49,990 at Amazon.in which seems to be the introductory price of the smartphone. It is available in two color options: Grey and Blue.
The much- anticipated LG V40 ThinQ has been finally unveiled in the Indian market, while initially it was showcased at an event in New York in October 2018. It has been equipped with flagship specifications include five camera sensors, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage and more.
The LG V40 ThinQ will face stiff competition with Samsung Galaxy S9 series and Google's Pixel 3 series. The Indian price of LG V40 ThinQ is not available at the moment. It has been listed on the e-commerce platform Amazon.in which reveals that the LG V40 ThinQ will go on sale from January 20 in India.
However, the Amazon prime members can book the device a day ahead from the general public i.e., January 19 at 12 PM Noon (IST). Amazon has created the microsite for the LG V40 ThinQ revealing the key specifications and highlights of the device.
HDFC Debit and Credit Card Holders can avail the 10 percent discount on the purchase of LG V40 ThinQ. Furthermore, Amazon will be offering free replacement warranty, no- cost EMI options for up to 12 months and exchange offer on LG V40 ThinQ.
LG V40 ThinQ Specifications
In terms of looks, the V40 ThinQ takes cues from the LG G7+ which was launched earlier this year. It carries a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ OLED notch display. Thanks to the notch the aspect ratio gets increased to 19.5:9. The display has a 3120×1440 resolution.
Under the hood, the premium offering is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB UFS 2.1 storage. A 128GB option is also on offer. Storage is further expandable to 2TB via microSD card slot.
If you are looking for Android out-of-the-box, you might be a little disappointed. The V40 ThinQ runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. Power duties are performed by a 3,300mAh battery which can be wirelessly charged.
There is also a dedicated button keeping Google Assistant services just a click away. On the connectivity front, LG V40 ThinQ supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and 4G LTE.
Going by numbers alone, the LG V40 ThinQ surpasses Apple, Samsung, and Huawei as far as camera count goes. Reportedly, Huawei P20 Pro has a quadrate of lenses. Of these, 3 shooters are at the rear, while the front has a single selfie-shooter.
LG would be hoping to regain some lost ground in the smartphone market to the likes of OnePlus and Huawei. Its current strategy of two smartphone launches per year is in line with its Korean counterpart Samsung. The current line of offerings from LG belongs to either the G-series or the V-series.
Following the all-new V40 ThinQ, all eyes would be fixed at what LG pulls out of the hat for its next G-Series offering at the beginning of next year.
