No. No. Bad LG. Smaller notches, not bigger ones. One selfie camera is fine, software can do the bokeh stuff. Look how stupid the S10 Plus looks with its tic-tac cutout
Since when TOF is considered as another camera.
Nokia 9 pureview have also 5 cameras plus a TOF unit and still everybody is talking about 5 camera setup not 6.
"The day will come when phones have more front cameras than rear cameras, and that will be a very sad day."
What's wrong with this GSMArena? You need to sack your forum moderator.
And it better be denied! What the heck is this crap??
I currently own this and the battery, DAC and waterproof are what keeps me with them. Their camera setup was a great idea with wide angle but now 2019 is here. It's become so common. Night time photos are where it suffers now.
selfie/front camera = phone
back camera = dslr as long as there is raw format/s
Rest in peace smartphone technology..
The patwnts should be granted, if something new is being presented ans the xompany ha working example. Adding one more camera is not new, adding one dot to the top is not new. This kind of patents reminds me of Apple and their silly business. But they arent only one...
1st cam is regular (ok), 2nd would be wide (why not just make the main lense wide?), 3rd one is what? Telephoto? So you could make an extra detail of boogers in your nose?
I swear the phone manufacturers just ran out of ideas...
The time will come when a phone has more front cameras than rear cameras, which is really sad.
Whackcar, 20 Apr 2019People are way too harsh to LG. Their phones are nowhere near as bad as people claim. In fact,... moreAgreed. They're not bad by any means, they're just a step behind in some areas, areas in which they could totally improve if they actually tried, though we do have to fault them for not willing to improve.
That better be some super secured high tech facial recognition. Else it just for the gimmick.
Whackcar, 20 Apr 2019People are way too harsh to LG. Their phones are nowhere near as bad as people claim. In fact,... moreMy word, I feel the support for LG. But, if the area's you fail on include camera and battery life, it's over. The DAC is their only saving grace. Screens are ok, but not too end. Software updates are poor. It still amazes me that a company from the land of Samsung, has such a poor phone output.
AnonD-558092, 20 Apr 2019LG V55S ThinQ+ AI Pro 5G. Coming soonYep
ZloiYuri, 20 Apr 2019People are way too harsh to LG because we were LG phones users. It's a B- calss phones in term... moreB- in terms of quality???? Are you serious? LG G7 V30 V40 are one of the best phones out there in terms of quality and in such a low price. In terms of support you are right though . LG has 3 things that defines the company,sound quality both speakers and headphones (Quad DAC), great screens (Best IPS screens in the market, at OLED they still need some work) and durability (Military graded or whatever they call it).
Pointless. I never use the stupid selfie camera.
This phone is definitely for very insecure fb sheeps..

I hope third is periscope camera with 5x optical, 10x hybrid and 50x digital zoom
Why its patented? Ah forget it...
"Aside from the triple selfie cameras, one key difference is the absence of a headphone jack. Could this indicate LG will stop offering the feature in a future device?"
Don't REMOVE the 3.5mm jack!! LG, please keep it as a CHOICE & STANDARD for the price you offer!! I saw the diagrams in this article and I can see there is MORE THAN ENOUGH SPACE at the bottom for the 3.5mm jack!! The ONLY reason I can think is MORE PROFIT$$ against CONVENIENCE & PRACTICALITY!! What other reason can LG say other than "COURAGE" i am guessing?? Just like (Cr)Apple on iPhone 7 in 2016.
"Maybe not right now, but this far into the trend of removing a headphone jack, it probably won’t be missed as much by the general population."
With statements like this, manufacturers are MORE THAN WILLING to REMOVE the 3.5mm jack!! We, the GENERAL POPULATION WILL MISS THE 3.5MM JACK VERY MUCH, thank you.
"Audiophiles, on the other hand – they might probably be devastated to no longer have the Quad-DAC."
That's a VERY SAD & TRUE statement right there. LG is the ONLY ONE with the Quad-DAC. No audiophiles IN GENERAL will switch to Bluetooth for latency issues (save for the ApTx tech but it will never be as good as good-ole 3.5mm jack), Type-C / Type-C to 3.5mm dongle (less painful, but if the type-C / type-C dongle is passive, it will NEVER SOUND AS GOOD unlike 3.5mm jack, so you are basically "scr***d"), wireless (battery life is a concern, latency issues).
