The LG V40 phone may come with five cameras and 3D face unlock

The LG V30+.

The Huawei P20 Pro is currently the only phone in the market with three rear cameras, but LG is said to be joining the fray with its V40 phone. 

A source familiar with LG's plans told Android Police that the V40 smartphone will come with five cameras; two on the front and three on the back. The two front-facing cameras will allow the unlocking of the handset via the user's face. A 3D map of the user's face is said to be recorded.

The three rear cameras will consist of a standard wide angle lens, an ultrawide lens, and a third lens with an undetermined function. It could be a zoom lens or one that can deliver depth of field effects. 

Similar to the LG G7, the V40 will sport a notched design. The handset will also be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, and be equipped with LG's Quad DAC and a rear fingerprint sensor.
