LG V30S ThinQ, V30S+ ThinQ with AI-integration launched at MWC 2018

Few days ago LG, in its typical fashion, announced a new LG V30 variant that came with more AI abilities before the MWC 2018 launch. Although the company did not reveal the specifications and the official name of the smartphone, it has done so now. A day before the onset of MWC 2018 LG has launched its LG V30S ThinQ and V30S+ ThinQ smartphones.

These smartphones heavily focus on the artificial intelligence abilities for the device’s camera and voice commands. The price and launch details are not yet out though. The difference between the LG V30S ThinQ and the V30S+ ThinQ lie in their inbuilt storage. Everything else stays nearly the same as the last year’s LG V30 smartphone.

Vision AI

LG V30S ThinQ and V30S+ ThinQ come with ‘Vision AI’ that claims to enhance the camera experience. It brings some new camera modes onboard like AI CAM, QLens and Bright Mode. AI CAM is said to analyze subjects in the frame and recommends the best possible shooting mode across eight categories – portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. The result comes as the AI takes into account several factors such as the viewing angle, colour, reflections, lighting, and saturation level.

QLens uses the AI capabilities to scan QR codes, improving the shopping experience to a certain level. It also includes image search for easy search online.

The Bright mode, as the name suggests, improves the low light shooting ability by measuring the ambient light and brightening images by a factor of two.

Voice AI

The Voice AI in LG V30S ThinQ and V30S+ ThinQ lets you run several apps using voice commands. LG says that it has worked with Google to bring 32-exclusive Voice AI commands only for LG devices. You can simply say ‘Ok Google’ followed by commands like ‘take a picture on a wide angle’ or ‘open camera in Cine video’ and more.

LG has even promised to bring these AI abilities to ‘certain’ smartphones as an OTA update in future. The update will reach smartphones that have capable hardware and other factors.
