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.

    The things I want in a smartphone:

    1. fits reasonably in a pocket
    2. all-day battery life with moderate usage
    3. physical keyboard
    4. 3.5mm TRRS headphone jack
    5. USB-C connector for power and data
    6. price that's not outrageous
    7. removable/replaceable battery

    What every phone maker wants to sell me:

    1. 6-inch 21:9 screen
    2. SUPER SLIM!
    3. no holes on the outside!
    4. THINNER THAN YOUR LAST PHONE!
    5. more cameras
    6. REDUCED THICKNESS!
    7. sealed-in battery
    8. NO BEZELS!

    As far as I know, there's LITERALLY no phone on the market that has the features I want.

    "fits reasonably in a pocket"
    "physical keyboard"
    Choose one you really can't have both and have a screen you can see without special goggles.

      All 4 of my smartphones have been sliders. Three side-sliders with ~4" screens, and a BB Priv.
      The Priv is at the top end of what I tolerate in my pocket. Sadly, almost all phones are now as big or bigger.

      Some of the Blackberry devices had keyboards that weren't too bad, even with large thumbs, but weren't too big.
