SEOUL -- LG Electronics showcased "V40", the company's the world's first smartphone equipped with five camera lenses and powerful photo imaging features.

"Consumers will be able to experience a new smart life that makes high-quality contents fun and easy to share by installing differentiated cameras on a superior platform," Hwang Jeong-hwan, president of LG Mobile, said at a showcase event in Seoul on Thursday.

Unlike other makers' flagship phones, which normally have a dual-lens camera and a single-lens front-facing camera, V40 has a triple-lens rear camera and dual-lens front camera. The triple-lens camera provides a variety of shooting angles, ranging from a narrow zoom angle to very wide panoramic angle.

Also, V40 can process three different images filmed by each lens and converge them into a single moving image. Just like its flagship brothers, V40 is fitted with a specially tuned digital-to-analog converter (DAC), which provides rich sounds through headphones or external speakers.

V40 is fitted with a large-sized 3,300mAh battery and a 6.4-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display. The flagship will come in two models -- a 64GB and 128GB. LG did not disclose the price of the phone.
