All about three rear cameras on LG V40 ThinQ
The three lenses on LG’s latest flagship smartphone attribute a bunch of versatility as follow:
- 12MP standard angle: This lens embeds a standard aperture of f/1.5 and 1.4-micron pixel size which is 40 percent greater than what is available in its predecessor model. With a smaller aperture and bigger pixel size, V40 ThinQ gets a perfect camera set up to shoot in low-lights.
- 16MP super wide-angle: It has an aperture of f/1.9 with a107 degrees wide angle view to capture edge-to-edge background.
- 12MP telephoto: This all-new image sensor with f/2.4 aperture amounts to 2x optical zoom and allows a photographer to click shots from a far distance without losing the quality.
Further, one can choose between the preferred modes of shot using Triple Preview and seize the moment in these three different angles in one click using the function Triple Shot, and then create a short video.
