Verizon LG V30 owners receive update giving their phone AI CAM and ThinQ name
phone boots up. The boot screen now shows that the phone has been magically transformed into the LG V30 ThinQ. Check out the before and after images at the top of this story. Keep in mind that this is NOT the LG V30S ThinQ, which was unveiled at MWC in February and includes extra RAM and more internal storage. But the point is that LG is pushing AI and wants everything, from its smart speakers to refrigerators, to be under the ThinQ branding umbrella.
The OTA update also features the March Android security update. And as always, we recommend that users follow two basic rules before starting to update their handset. Make sure that the phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network (Verizon adds that a strong Verizon network connection will also suffice), and that the battery is fully charged.
Maybe Big Red isn't pulling a rabbit out of a hat, but we think that Verizon customers with the LG V30 in hand will appreciate this magic a lot more.
