LG Electronics has sent out media invites for the unveiling of the V40 ThinQ in the form of a 10-second animation.

The short black and white video clip shows photos being taken in three different angles, as well a long shot.

It likely hints at powerful camera hardware, and is rumored to have a triple camera in the back and dual in front.

The events will take place in LG Science Park in Seoul, at 10am on October 4, and in New York at 5pm on October 3.

The phone is rumored to support 3D facial recognition for unlocking, with the screen likely to be 6.3 inches, nearly matching the Galaxy Note 9's 6.4 inches and iPhone XS Max's 6.5 inches, and is 0.3 inches larger than the V30.

A day earlier, Apple unveiled the iPhone XS, iPhone XS MAX and iPhone XR.

Korean compatriot Samsung open the second half mobile phone refresh season with the launch of the Note 9 in August.
