The Mobile World Congress (MWC) taking place this week sees the launch of the LG V30S ThinQ, LG’s first smartphone with integrated AI technology.
Fans would be no stranger to this new smartphone, as the ThinQ variant retains a similar hardware to the LG V30. Major changes to the V30S ThinQ include increased RAM (to 6GB), increased storage (to 128/256GB), new colours (Moroccan Blue/Platinum Gray), and new AI technologies.
Undeniably, the most interesting change would be the new AI technology within. With Vision AI and Voice AI on board the device, it’s clear that LG has chosen to focus on its camera and voice recognition.
Vision AI aims to make taking photos more intuitive with three new intelligent camera features. AI CAM recommends users the optimal shooting mode after analysing the subject in the frame. QLens improves users’ online shopping experience by using its image recognition capabilities to scan QR codes. Bright Mode utilises algorithms to brighten photos by a factor of two without distortion for better photos.
The LG-exclusive Voice AI allows users to run apps and change settings solely through voice commands. Paired with Google Assistant, users no longer need to search through menu options to directly choose specific functions.
Pricing and availability have not been announced as of yet.
