LG upgrades V30 smartphone with AI camera

The LG V30 Signature Edition comes with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The LG V30 was somewhat of a mixed bag.

The V30S ThinQ uses AI in many ways not yet seen including the camera with software they are calling Vision AI. Called LG V30S ThinQ, the smartphone boasts OLED display, 6GB of RAM, and dual cameras as its highlights. Then there's a new Bright Mode for low-light photography, which the company claims can produce better photos twice as bright as before. With QLens, you can point the phone's cameras at an object and get information about it. Notwithstanding, we already know its home country, Korea, will get it first. Specifics regarding its U.S. pricing and carrier availability remain unknown for now, but we'll pass along those details as soon as we get them.

The phone is expected to be announced at Mobile World Congress early next month.

Built on the foundation of the LG V30 platform, the LG V30S ThinQ features Vision AI that introduces three new intelligent camera functions.

The company's proprietary QLens is equipped with image recognition capabilities of the AI technology to scan QR codes in order to improve users' online shopping experience.

AI CAM analyzes subjects in the frame and recommends the optimal shooting mode among eight categories: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. It can also be used to see matching images of food and fashion or detailed information of landmarks such as buildings and statues - much like Google Lens does.

Another new feature is Voice AI that allows users to run apps and change settings through voice commands alone.

The new LG V30 2018 will come with 32 LG-exclusive Google Assistant voice commands up from 23 in LG V30 2017. It had a fantastic design, with excellent camera performance, a microSD card slot, wireless charging, and even a headphone jack. It will be available in a Platinum Grey and a Moroccan Blue. We reported past year that the ThinQ brand launched by LG would encompass all of their products that use artificial intelligence. There is a dual-camera setup at the back with a combination of 16-megapixel standard angle f/1.6 aperture sensor and a 13-megapixel wide-angle f/1.9 aperture sensor with 120-degree field-of-view. Additional LG smartphones will be considered for future AI upgrades, depending on hardware and other factors for the best user experience. A total of 50 commands will be available in the ThinQ smartphone, out of which, 34 commands are LG exclusive ones.

As of now, it's unknown whether the new phone will make it to the Indian market or not. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates from MWC 2018.
