LG has taken the wraps- off a new smartphone that seems to be solely for the Japanese market. The LG Style3 is basically a redesign of the V40 ThinQ, which was launched in 2018. The phone comes along with some specs that might make you think this is a flagship phone suited for 2020, but some aspects of the design and specs are disappointing.
Just like the V40 ThinQ, the LG Style3 features an OLED screen with Quad HD+ resolution. But the display comes in at 6.1 inches, which is smaller than the V40 ThinQ’s. The display has a wide notch at the top, which holds a single 8MP selfie camera as against dual selfie cameras on the V40 ThinQ.
The Style3 is powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, which was released in 2018 and featured on the V40 ThinQ. Even though the processor is old, it still is a powerful one and should be adequate for the device, but that would depend on the retail price. The model comes in only 4GB RAM version as well as 64GB storage. The storage can be ramped up via a microSD card slot that supports up to 512GB of added storage.
For photography, you get a dual-camera setup at the rear arranged horizontally in a single module along with the LED flash. The camera is a 48MP + 8MP combo. The V40 ThinQ has three sensors but a similar design. Just under the rear camera is a physical fingerprint sensor. The LG Style3 packs 3500mAh battery. It is a 4G phone and supports NFC.
The phone is already listed by Japanese carrier NTT Docomo, but the price wasn’t listed.
