The LG V40 and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will soon face off with three rear cameras

The LG V40 would bring the most photographic flexibility in a cell phone, but the Huawei Mate 20 Pro would have three rear cameras and its attractive Twilight color.


LG officially announced that the LG V40 (or LG V40 ThinQ as it is officially called) will have nothing more and nothing less than five cameras (three rear cameras and two front cameras), which would allow it to compete not only with the Huawei P20 Pro but also with the next Huawei flagship phone, Mate 20 Pro.

These three cell phones would be one of the few with three rear cameras on the market and thanks to that, the P20 Pro has also managed to generate so much interest this year.

That said, it is expected that the cameras of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will be as good or better than those of the P20 Pro, standing out in a similar way with a large optical zoom and very good performance in low light situations.

Although this is good, I confess that for the moment I am more excited by the LG V40 because it would not only be the first LG cell phone with three rear cameras: a regular camera, a wide angle that allows to create a more immersive experience and a telephoto (similar to the that we find in cell phones like the Galaxy Note 9 or Galaxy S9 Plus ) that allows you to capture images more closely without losing so much detail.

This characteristic of the cameras of the LG V40 would be unique and would offer the greater photographic flexibility that would be in the cell phone, offering three different angles to capture the same scene.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro, successor to the Mate 10 Pro, would have three rear cameras, but will surely follow the same idea of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro: a black and white, a color and a telephoto.

The difference here is that the three cameras would not necessarily offer different perspectives since in most cases the color and black and white combine to obtain better overall photos, while the other would offer another perspective by providing optical zoom.

The truth is that not everything is photographic flexibility and although what the LG V40 would offer would be outstanding, the quality of the cameras is more important.

It will be good to try these cameras because LG is often within the best cameras on cell phones and Huawei has surprised with what the P20 Pro offers. 

That said, if the quality of the photos is not so different, the flexibility offered by the LG V40 would make me opt for it instead of the Huawei cell phone. In addition, its novelty in the cameras is very welcome in a very saturated market where most cell phones are already very similar. Also, after the great surprise, I had with the LG V35, it is logical to expect that the LG V40 will be better.

Another advantage that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro would bring would be the attractive Twilight color, the same gradient tone that the company introduced with the  Huawei P20 Pro and that left us speechless.
