LG V40's Codename Is Reportedly 'Storm'

According to Blass, the LG V35 ThinQ may arrive at the same time as the LG G7, which would mean a May or June release.

LG apparently wasn't kidding when it said it was abandoning a strict yearly product cycle.

We have gone past the first quarter of 2018 and what's unusual is that LG has yet to debut a flagship smartphone, that is unless you count the LG V30S which is more like an upgraded version of last year's LG V30. A late summer or early fall unveiling is the norm for LG's V-series, as in the past the company has announced all previous V-series handsets, except the V30S ThinQ, in the fall.

First and foremost, Evan Blass took to Twitter to share that the LG V40 ThinQ's codename is "Storm".


What exactly the V40 ThinQ will offer is completely up in the air at this point.

A number of specs for the LG V35 ThinQ leaked just over a week ago, although, unlike the G7 ThinQ, we've yet to see any images of the proposed device in renders or in the wild.

The LG V40 is assumed to be the follow-up to the premium V30, but we haven't heard too much about it besides its rumored code name and ThinQ branding (pronounced "thin queue").

For a company that held off on releasing its G series flagship, it seems weird that LG would release three different V series smartphones (V30S, V35, and V40) in a single year. The V35 follows the LG V30S announced during the Mobile World Congress. Of course, LG has something new after a few months of hard work in development, rebranding, and changing its business strategies.
