LG says screw everything, we're doing five cameras for the V40

It's tough to stand out in the premium smartphone world, but LG may have a solution for its upcoming V40 flagship. There's a rumor from Android Police that says the company is throwing caution to the wind and putting five cameras on its new phone, a device that will surely succeed where last year's V30's (and its V35 variant's) paltry three cameras did not.

According to Android Police's source, the V40 will feature three cameras on the back of the device. It's similar to the Huawei P20 Pro, which was the first major smartphone to offer a triple-camera system. The V40 will also feature dual cameras on the front of the device (like the HTC U12 Plus), in what's rumored be a stereo system to follow for 3D face mapping and unlocking. While both the dual-front camera and triple-rear camera configurations aren't new, the five-camera system would the first time we've seen both on a single device. If the rumor is correct, this would be the most cameras on a smartphone.

    Didn't anyone ever tell you that you shouldn't explain other people's jokes? The gratitude from those who didn't previously understand the joke really isn't worth much at all.

    Takyon's "LG says screw everything, we're doing five cameras" is a direct and explicit, though less explicit, reference to The Onion's "Fuck Everything, We're Doing Five Blades".

      sorry. I didn't actually realize the reference... my attention is not what it used to be.
