LG Introduces AI camera features for new V30 model

LG was rumored to launch a new smartphone called the V30s, which will be an upgraded version of its V30 flagship at MWC this year. This new AI feature is very much focused on image recognition and is going to get featured on “the 2018 version of the LG V30”. The so-called Vision AI can automate image analysis for shooting mode recommendations along with object recognition and shopping suggestion. LG says that it’ll be showing off “the first of a suite of AI technologies” on a new version of the V30 at Mobile World Congress this month, seemingly confirming a recent rumor out of Korea. ET News stated that a new phone called the V30s is set for an MWC reveal and will feature AI-powered camera features. The AI tech is going to feature on “the 2018 version of the LG V30,” and is indeed initially focused on image recognition. It involves automatic image analysis for shooting mode recommendations (like Huawei did with its Kirin 970 chip on the Mate 10) along with object recognition and shopping suggestions (like Google did with Lens on the Pixel phones). There’s also a feature that claims to leverage AI to offer better low-light performance. It’s clear that at least for now, LG isn’t trying to develop its own smartphone voice assistant, as Samsung has with Bixby. Instead, the company is leaning on Google Assistant and building in some commands that are exclusive to LG phones. There are already 23, and that list will grow to 32 this year. That means you’ll be able to use your voice to trigger the new photo features. LG says that some of the AI features from the 2018 V30 will make their way to existing LG phones.
