LG V40 specs leak online, Snapdragon 845 SoC and five cameras in tow

Last week, we came across leaked CAD renders of the LG V40 that gave us a very good look at the smartphone. These renders also confirmed that the V40 would come with five cameras – three at the back and two on the front. However, there were not a lot many details available about the hardware of the V40. Well, not anymore, as the specs sheet of the LG V40 leaked online reveals details about its underlying hardware.

This specs sheet of the LG V40 has been leaked by the folks over at AndroidPit who procured it from a source that’s “close to LG”. According to the leaked specs sheet, the LG V40 will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 845 SoC which will be paired with 6 GB RAM. The smartphone will also sport a 6.4-inch P-OLED notched display that will have 19.5:9 aspect ratio and QHD+ resolution. Well, this display on the V40 is 0.4-inch larger than the one on its predecessor – the V35 ThinQ.
