The LG V40 ThinQ is scheduled to launch at T-Mobile on October 19th, but some lucky pre-order customers are getting their new phone a few days early.
TmoNews reader Nick got their LG V40 ThinQ today, well ahead of the phone’s official release. The V40 has made a good first impression, with Nick saying that that it’s a “well made device” and that the “screen is awesome” and that the “audio over Bluetooth is great”.
T-Mobile has a history of shipping pre-order devices a few days before their official launch date, so it’s not too surprising to see the LG V40 already landing on customers’ doorsteps. It’s still exciting, though, because it’s fun to get a brand new smartphone before it’s available on store shelves.
As a refresher, the LG V40 ThinQ features a triple rear camera setup with a standard 12MP sensor, a 16MP wide angle camera with a 107-degree field of view, and a 12MP telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom. There are two more cameras around front in the V40’s display notch: one 8MP standard sensor and one 5MP wide angle lens with an 80-degree field of view.
Other notable features of the LG V40 include a 6.4-inch 3120×1440 OLED screen, Snadpraton 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot for adding more storage. There’s a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC in there, too, for improved audio with wired headphones, as well as a 3300mAh battery and rear fingerprint reader.
One other detail worth mentioning is that the LG V40 includes support for T-Mobile’s 600MHz LTE network. The V40 supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 46, 66, and 71 as well as LTE roaming bands 1, 3, 7, 8, 13, 20, 25, 26, 28, 38, 39, 40, 41. Also included are LTE technologies like 4×4 MIMO, carrier aggregation, 256 QAM, and License Assisted Access (LAA).
The LG V40 ThinQ is priced at $0 down and $38.34 per month for 24 months on an Equipment Installment Plan, $200 down for well-qualified customers and $30 per month for 18 months with JUMP! On Demand, or $920 full retail. Customers who pre-order the LG V40 ThinQ will receive a free smartphone gimbal and 256GB microSD card from LG.
