An interesting attribute of the phone is that it is also powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm-based camera app, which can intuitively identify the scenarios—beach, grassland, hills and others and automatically adjust camera settings to get the best possible image.

Another notable aspect is that the LG phone offers --Triple Shot--, which will take three images from three different cameras and allows viewing how the same subject looks in a different type of lens.

On the front, it houses an impressive dual camera—one 8MP Standard (F1.9 / 1.12μm / 80-degree) and a 5MP Wide (F2.2/1.12µm/90-degree) sensor. It offers Bokeh blur effect for selfies.

Besides the top-notch cameras, LG V40 ThinQ comes with highly durable build quality. It has passed military-level-durability MIL-STD-810G certification and is capable of handling wide-range of environment conditions that include: low pressure for altitude testing; exposure to high and low temperatures plus temperature shock (both operating and in storage); rain (including wind blown and freezing rain); humidity, fungus, salt fog for rust testing; sand and dust exposure; explosive atmosphere; leakage; acidic atmosphere, acceleration; shock and transport shock; gunfire vibration; and random vibration.

Furthermore, it also boasts IP68 water-and-dust resistant certification, meaning LG phone user can take it for a dip in the swimming pool, provided you don't dive deeper than five feet and for close to 30 minutes only.
