LG V40 ThinQ launched in South Africa

LG Electronics has announced that it will launch the V40 ThinQ in South Africa on 7 February.

The device will initially be exclusive to Vodacom and will be priced from:

  • R599 per month on a Smart XS+ package.
  • Recommended retail price of R12,499.

Vodacom will bring in the single-SIM variant of the device in Moroccan Blue, and will bundle it with the the LG K9 on a Flexi 60 postpaid package.

LG first unveiled the V40 ThinQ in October 2018, and released it in the United States later that month.

In addition to launching a new smartphone, the LG Watch W7 will also be available from Vodacom when it publishes its new deal book on 7 February.

Developed in partnership with Soprod SA of Switzerland, the LG Watch W7 boasts quartz movement and physical watch hands wrapped in a stainless steel body.

LG said that in full operation mode on a single charge, the LG Watch W7 can run for up to two days – and then an additional 3-4 days in analogue-only mode.

In watch-only mode with its “smart” features disabled, the watch can operate for up to 100 days before requiring a charge.

You will be able to bolt-on the LG Watch W7 for an extra R199 per month, or buy it for a recommended retail price of R3,699.
