The new smartphone is blessed with the AI technology inspired from Google lens.
LG launched the LG V30 in August at China while the was launched in India back in December. Though the smartphone wasn’t a major success and struggled to make a profit, the company has plans to turn this around by using the releasing new variants strategy. The company now plans to launch a variant of the smartphone called LG V30s which will be featuring a Bixby-like AI feature dubbed as the “LG Lens”.
The report is first made by the ETNews, which describes the LG Lens as similar to Google Lens. The company aims to incorporate Artificial Intelligence technology in the phone’s camera. This includes recognising objects in images, translating languages, surfacing relevant products, giving AR guides based on GPS locations, reading barcodes and QR codes and more.
According to the report, the new variant will feature a similar design like that of the LG V30 and will offer 256 GB internal storage. A previous report mentioned that a new variant of the LG V30 called the V30+’a’ or V30 alpha will launch with Google Assistant based AI support. Now it’s not sure whether it is the same device, but we expect the South Korean smartphone manufacturer to give an official word soon.
LG is known for its strategy of launching variants to spice up the same smartphone. It previously launches another LG V30 variant called LG V30 Signature Edition before the holiday season in Korea at a price tag of $1800(Rs 1,17,000 approx). Also at CES 2018, it unveiled a Raspberry Rose variant of the LG V30. So it is very likely that the new LG V30s will be showcased in the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2018 to be held this month in Barcelona, Spain.
