2018 LG V30, to be unveiled at MWC, will use AI to recommend camera settings and more
In two weeks, MWC will be open and at one point during the trade show, LG is expected to unveil its revised LG V30 model which is rumored to be called the 2018 LG V30. One of the new features on the device will be software giving the revised phone some AI capabilities. Voice AI will allow the user to give voice commands to Google Assistant that are exclusive to LG handsets. These commands allow the camera to start up in a specific mode.

23 of these commands were introduced last year with another 9 unveiled this year. The latter commands include:

  • Panoramic Photo
  • Food Photo
  • Time-lapse Photo (Video)
  • Slow-motion Video
  • Low-light Photo
  • AI Cam Photo
  • Image Search
  • Code Scanning
  • Shopping Search

Besides using Vision AI image recognition for searches and shopping, LG will use a model based on 100 million images to make recommendations on how to set the camera. The phone will come with 8 pre-defined camera settings to recommend, based on things like reflections in the picture, the angle of the shot, the amount of available light, and more.

As we pointed out, the 2018 LG V30's AI capabilities will be based on software, not additional hardware. LG plans on offering the AI features to other models that have the hardware to support it. We could hear more about that at MWC.

Does it really even make sense for them to do this? How many versions of the v30 had they already made? They should just focus on making their flagship for this year

I thought their CEO was a genius when he wants to stop the yearly flagship announcement. Now I think I'm wrong.

Their CEO really want to launch a 2018's flagship earlier than samsung, even if it use SD835, but his workers said NO, so here they are now :-/

If this is literally the same V30 but with software enhancements what is the damn point? Why wouldn't they just update the already available existing V30s with the AI enabled software. At least include an improved front facing camera to round out the already fantastic V30. If LG really does this I will upgrade to the Galaxy S9 100%. I just can't get behind a company that hasn't learned from their mistakes year after year. However, I'll be watching to see what they actually unveil.

For Lg....When they were learned about their past mistakes, newer mistake will pop up... I'm used to love LG untill the V30 came out with that very same bad front camera from V20...so disappointed...
