LG V40 ThinQ international giveaway!

It’s time for the Sunday giveaway! Like every week, we’re giving away another a brand new Android phone to one lucky Android Authority reader.
A big congratulations to the winner of last week’s Samsung Galaxy Note 9 giveaway, Mauricio M. from Ecuador!
This week we’re giving away a brand new LG V40 ThinQ, courtesy of the AA Deals Store!
The AA Deals Store is running a fantastic promotion on the Raspberry Pi 3B+ Starter Kit Bundle. For just $139.99 (68% off), this bundle includes the latest version of the Raspberry Pi, a number of components to assemble, and video training materials. Basically, it’s everything you need to start building the robots and games you’ve been visualizing since you were a kid.
Get this deal now!

The LG V40 ThinQ is one feature-packed smartphone.
The star of the show is the V40’s triple rear-camera setup, featuring one standard lens, one ultra wide-angle lens, and one telephoto lens. You can choose to take a photo with one of these lenses, or use all three at the same time if you want to choose the best one after the fact. The cameras may not be Galaxy Note 9 level, but they are good.
The V40 is also a phone for audiophiles. It comes with the same Boombox feature that launched with the LG G7, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack and Quad DAC.
Rounding out the feature set is support for wireless charging, an IP68 water- and dust-resistance rating, and support for Quick Charge 4.0. Basically I’m saying this is an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink phone.

LG V40 ThinQ isn’t out yet, but it’s just received a second camera update

Category : LG V40 ThinQ , News

The LG V40 ThinQ has received a second camera-focused update this week.
The update brings better HDR performance, and improved auto-focus in Triple Shot mode.
LG’s previous update brought better low-light image quality, and improved white balance/brightness.

The LG V40 ThinQ is the second flagship to hit the market with a triple-camera setup, enabling wildly different perspectives. Photo quality was a little disappointing, as we found out in our LG V40 ThinQ review, but the Korean company seems committed to improving matters.
LG has delivered a second camera-focused update for the smartphone, Droid-Life reports, weighing in at 391MB. This new update improves HDR performance, delivers better sharpness and color in outdoor conditions, and improves the “black phenomenon of video recording.” Yeah, I don’t know what that means, either.
The update doesn’t stop there, as it also improves auto-focus when using the Triple Shot mode. This was an issue raised by several reviewers, so we’re glad to see LG paying attention to this feature.
News of a new LG V40 update comes a few days after the company issued its first camera-focused update. The first update improved low-light image quality, low-light HDR snaps, and AI Camera quality. The OTA update also delivered improved auto-focus performance and better white balance/brightness in outdoor conditions.
Editor’s PickAll the exciting things phones could do with a triple camera

We might see more phones with triple cameras in the future, if the latest Samsung Galaxy S10 rumors are true. The Huawei P20 Pro’s triple sensor setup already produces some impressive results, with its high-resolution 40MP …
We’re glad to see LG deliver updates before the phone’s release, but hopefully the company keeps this commitment after the phone hits shelves. After all, a prompt serving of Android Pie is in order, as the device launched with Android 8.1.
You’re still getting a feature-packed phone anyway, including an 8MP standard and 5MP wide-angle front camera setup, wireless charging, IP68 water/dust resistance, a headphone jack, and quad-DAC hardware.
What do you make of the LG V40? Would you buy it over other flagships? Let us know in the comments!
