    I was told it was using the same camera sensor as the S9/S9+ and Note 9. Would that be a good thing if it was? What do you think?

    Edit: Just got a confirmation it will have a Sony IMX363 which is actually newer than the Galaxy S9/S9+'s IMX345... Currently checking to see if it has dual pixel

    Proof: http://blog.uplus.co.kr/3338

    The V40 has a Sony ExmorRS IMX363 with *DUAL PIXEL* technology

    The G7 has an IMX351

    The Galaxy S9/S9+ has an IMX345

    Honestly the hardware is good, it's just the camera software people often judge. Samsung has really great camera software, as well as Google. Install Google's GCam and it's going to be great.

    ***Update 10/15/2018:
    Translated Korean to English:

    "The LG V40 ThinQ is equipped with an IMX363 image sensor, Sony's ExmorRS series with 12 million pixels, a sensor size of 1 / 2.55 ", a pixel size of 1.4㎛, and AF supports Dual-PDAF."

    "On the back, it seems to be equipped with a 12-megapixel camera, a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. Normal cameras are supposed to use a Sony imx 363 sensor and are known to support an aperture value of F1.5. (For reference, the imx 363 sensor is a sensor installed by companies such as Samsung and Xiaomi.) The wide angle camera and telephoto camera are said to use the Sony imx 351 which was used before. As the rear camera supports Dual Pixel, it is said that the focusing process is very advanced and laser autofocus, which is a near focus processing technology, is missing. The AI ​​camera will be more advanced."

    "The rear camera uses a camera module with OIS technology and a 12-megapixel camera of the Sony X-Mover IMX363 sensor set at an angle of view of 78 degrees. It is equipped with a basic camera and a 16-megapixel camera with a 107 angle of view. We set up a 45- megapixel camera with a telephoto camera and constructed a triple lens with this set. This rear camera, the first one with a triple lens to LG Electronics in smartphones will is. And the primary camera supports phase-difference detection AF using "Dual Pixel" technology . However, LG Electronics ' G series and V series equipped with the basic LASER AFNo sensors were installed. Also, the sensor size is 1 / 2.55 inch for the main camera, 1 / 3.06 inch for the wide angle camera and 1 / 3.6 inch for the telephoto camera. The brightness of the aperture is F / 1.5 for the main camera, F / 1.9 for the wide angle camera, and F / 2.4 for the telephoto camera. The front camera uses an 8-megapixel camera with an angle of view of 80 degrees. It is equipped with a basic camera, and a 5-megapixel camera is set at an angle of view of 90 degrees. This is a dual-lens front camera with a long time since V10 . Also, the aperture brightness is F / 1.9 for the primary camera and F / 2.2 for the wide angle camera."

    That would be freaking amazing with LG's manual mode too. Too easy but I still don't like the size of the V40. I wish they kept it closer to the V30 form factor.

    V40:
    158.8 x 75.7 x 7.6 mm (6.25 x 2.98 x 0.30 in)

    V30:
    151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3 mm (5.97 x 2.97 x 0.29 in)

    V20:
    159.7 x 78.1 x 7.6 mm (6.29 x 3.07 x 0.30 in)

    Just a tad bit taller than the V30, I'm okay with it. I appreciate the larger screen, should be a better experience. The phone is still extremely thin and lightweight compared to most flagships.

    The width is near identical too so the in hand feel will be the same. Just a little taller.

    UPDATE: Confirmed the camera sensor will be a Sony IMX363... which is newer than the Galaxy S9/S9+'s IMX345... currently checking to confirm if it has the dual pixel technology... Camera is looking very good.. on par with the Pixel 3 from what I've seen in the comparisons.

    Sensor alone does not a camera make. Lense and software have as much or more of an impact on quality. See Blackberry KEYone as an example. Same sensor as GS9, but pics not nearly as good.

    GCam saves the day, Samsung and Google's camera software and research is backed by Silicon Valley engineers.

    Here you go. It's in Korean but you can still see that it says IMX363. So the sensor is actually more newer and advanced than Samsung's Galaxy S9/S9+.

    ******Update: here's the translation of the Korean website discussing the camera specs in detail. It's CONFIRMED that the V40 indeed has DUAL PIXEL technology! I'm very glad to hear the news!

    IDK, based on playing with one today and some reviews I've seen I'm not blown away by the detail of the main camera and the colors are different on the telephoto. I may be spoiled by my Pixel 2. Not sure I can give up my Pixel 2 camera.

    I'm wondering how the Pixel camera will look on the V40 once it's made available?

    Yeah I guess that's the question. I have seen it produce better shots on the Note 9 so maybe it will be better?

    Just to clarify, I was not able to really test it because it was tethered to the display. I just watched a few reviews this afternoon and it seemed like a mixed bag.

    Don't believe all reviews, some are heavily biased.. The camera comparison videos with the Note 9 and Pixel 3 XL showed LG took really good photos/videos (see my other post).. everything from here on is nitpicking and subjective. This is about to be 2019 and all phone cameras are good either way.

    It will be stellar, since it's using Sony's newest and best sensor, IMX363 with dual pixel. Google has the software, LG has the hardware.
