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.

    You see, i see this (and the next article about MS facial recognition) as TERRIFYING!!

    We have a phone that wants to DETAIL map in 3D for "phone unlocking" and 'better' software for facial recognition.

    Does anybody else get their curly's itching at this (these)?

    Fuck NO, you can't map my face like that!
    Fuck NO, you can't database my face like that and pin it to me, my name, my address, my family details, my social connections, where i eat and play.....

    Fuck NO! Get the hell off my lawn and yes the carpet does match the drapes, so 3D map THIS, MOTHERFUCKER.
