LG phone with always on voice command set to launch in 2014
Where most voice-activated personal assistants can search, set an alarm or dictate an email, LG's voice activated system will allow users to vocally ask the phone to zoom in or out of, say, Google Maps. Users will also be able to use their voice to switch views and pan around. Much of this functionality has to do with native capabilities available with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. The chip can learn the voice of the owner so that your prankster pals can't control your phone. And Qualcomm says that this feature will not be a detriment to battery life.
So when will we see this device? The Snapdragon 800 will be available later this year so the decision is really up to the Korean based manufacturer. Perhaps the sequel to the LG Optimus G, the LG Optimus G2 will be the first model with this capability. Public perception is that the LG Optimus G Pro is the sequel to the LG Optimus G, but it is actually the G2. You might recall the mystery LG handset that leaked last month without any buttons on the front. This could be the LG Optimus G2.
