LG V30 Will Receive a New Variant at MWC 2018 – New AI Features Will Make the Phone Into a Smarter Device
According to the rumors circulating last week, LG V30 will be getting at the Mobile World Congress trade show. This reaffirms the previous reports which claimed that LG will not launch new devices on an annual schedule and the anticipated G7 has been scrapped, with the company now working on a new design.
The V30 leak also emphasized on the inclusion of an AI called LG Lens. LG has now confirmed this by announcing an updated version of the V30 which will now come equipped with new AI functionalities.
LG V30 Will Now Be Able Perform Actions Based on 32 Voice Commands - New Feature Called Vision AI Will Be Used for the Following
The AI functionality is composed of two parts: Vision AI and Voice AI. Voice AI will be integrated with Google Assistant and comes with 32 commands for capturing pictures and videos in specific modes, while Vision AI is a little complex.
Ha Jeung-uk, senior vice president and business unit leader for LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company states the changes coming to the new and improved flagship.
“As we communicated last month at CES, the future for LG lies in AI, not just hardware specs and processing speeds. Creating smarter smartphones will be our focus going forward and we are confident that consumers will appreciate the advanced user experience with the enhanced V30 that many have been asking and waiting for.”
Vision AI is part Huawei’s Neural Network Processor and part Google Lens. LG, along with an image recognition partner, has analyzed more than 100 million pictures to improve its algorithm. The image recognition feature also automatically recommends the best photo mode when you are taking a picture (food, portrait, landscape, sunrise, flower, and sunset).
This will help to enhance and brighten the pictures taken in low light by not only calculating the external light but also by analyzing the image captured. It can also be used to start a visual search, scan QR codes, and retrieve shopping information.
The updated 2018 edition of LG V30 will have these exciting features out of the box, but existing devices may also get them through software updates. More information will be revealed during the official announcement at the MWC 2018 trade show.
