LG is fresh into the artificial intelligence service races with several product integrations over the past month or so since CES. From home appliances to now smartphones, we now see the ThinQ (pronounced thin-cue) brand latching onto a new and improved version of the V30. The LG V30S ThinQ is touted to be a 2017 flagship with steroids only available in 2018.

Previous rumors concerning the camera have been confirmed here: image recognition leads to features like AI CAM to sort different shooting modes for different subjects; QLens to scan barcodes and QR codes; and Bright Mode, which amalgamates light-sensing abilities by group pixels together to create a 4-megapixel image rather than a 16-megapixel one.

Voice AI also allows for commands specific to the phone to be processed with a request to Google Assistant (for example, turn on Wi-Fi).

As with recent flagship releases, LG is putting out the V30S ThinQ with a plus-model with double the storage. Both should hold up well to a beating with a MIL-STD 810G rating.

The company has yet to map or price any availability for either Platinum Gray or Moroccan Blue color, but we’ll keep you informed.
