LG is one of the biggest smartphone brands on the market. The South Korean firm is having a hard time selling its smartphones out there. However, the company is coming back this year following months of sluggish sales performance.
Back in May 2018, LG officially debuted the G7 ThinQ, a premium phone that includes a lot of top-tier features and components, like a top-notch, a stunning display, and powerful specs. The G7 ThinQ serves as LG’s strategic plan to take on Apple iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
LG is expected to launch a new flagship phone at this year IFA event that kicks off in late August in Berlin. This year’s IFA event will take place on August 31 and will run through September 5. We are expecting to see the unveiling of a lot of things at this year’s event.
Last year, the South Korean firm announced the V30 at the event. The V30 is not a huge upgrade over its predecessors. However, there are a lot of new things that are worth your time. At this year’s event, LG is expected to debut the successor to the V30. The upcoming flagship phone, called LG V40.
The upcoming V40 is expected to come with a ton of new things over the V30. One such thing lies in an in-display fingerprint scanner. In fact, an in-display fingerprint scanner was previously rumored to include in the V30, but it was nowhere to be found at launch.
Both Apple and Samsung have been working on a fingerprint scanner that works under your display. However, it seems that smartphone brands need more time to make sure that everything runs smoothly at launch.
Sources say that the upcoming V40 will stick with an OLED display panel. Under the hood, the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the latest mobile processor that offers smooth and fast performance while playing games or editing videos.
Reports say that the V40 will feature a dedicated Google Assistant that allows you to quickly trigger your virtual helper. Google has been improving its own virtual helper, offering users more options to interact with apps and services.
